Will Smith’s Oscar scenario blew up the entire world. Whether you watched the Oscars or not, surely you would have an opinion on the same. Chris Rock’s “Joke” on Jada Smith’s bald look didn’t sit well with Will Smith.
He went on the stage and slapped Chris Rock and ended up winning an Oscar for Best Actor for his role in King Richards. Chris Rock made fun of her hairstyle which was the result of her alopecia condition. He compared her to G.I.Jane who also portrayed a shaven cut in the film.
The moment this happened, tweets went viral but even celebs had a say in it. Check out what your favorite celebs have had to say about this scenario!
1. Judd Apatow blasted off on Twitter and then deleted the tweets. Thankfully, someone already took a Screenshot of those and posted it online.

You just got to witness in real time what happens in a man’s soul when he looks over to the woman he loves & sees her holding back tears from a “little joke” at her expense. This is what any & every real man feels in that instant. while y’all seeing the joke he’s seeing her pain

Let me tell you something, it’s a very bad practice to walk up on stage and physically assault a Comedian.

If @willsmith seriously did that — and he wins the OSCAR — he just stained the greatest moment of his career. You cannot do that S$&@!!Especially as a BLACK MAN, in that position, to ANOTHER BLACK MAN(@chrisrock) on THAT STAGE. If this was not a joke, Will won’t live this down!!!

After he received the award, Will Smith apologized to the nominees and the Academy. He later took his social media to personally apologize to Chris Rock. We certainly do hope everything is cool between them! What is your take on this event?
