Just saw that the film that won “Best Picture” has a meta score of 74 and grossed just over a million (one. million.) dollars worldwide. So, yes, I’m going with fake slap.

It streamed on AppleTV Plus.

This was not staged and it was awkward af after it happened.

Will Smith came off as a complete douche bag.   Nobody cares if he can beat up anyone.  

IMO they both went to far. Rock shouldn’t have put down Pinkett and Smith needed to handle that differently.  I recall this guy who was a tv interviewer once KISSED Will Smith in the mouth and Smith was shocked. But he didn’t hit the guy. He was upset but held his cool. He lost it last night.

Ah. Well whatever. Will Smith should try slapping Idris Elba for stealing Deadshot from him. See how that goes.

Legit, why am I still even in this thread?

All I wanted to do was watch porn and go to bed.

Now I find myself in here debating whether Will Smith is a thin skinned bitch who lost his cool and slapped Chris Rock at the Oscars, or whether they're both just dipsh*t elitist Hollywood actors pulling YET ANOTHER ONE over our eyes!

The f*ck

Just google bald porn stars to make up for it.

i don't know about this one.  i like both of these guys as actors and comedians.  and apparently will smith forgot that his wife is actually an actress and therefore fair game.  and it's not like the alopecia is life threatening.  if it was due to chemo then i think will would be justified.  but it's hollywood and these people don't live in the same world as the rest of us.

From my POV Will Smith can't act and Chris Rock isn't funny.  However having gone to lots of comedy clubs in NYC back in the 70's and 80's, comics, many of whom became famous where routinely booed and heckled.  The good ones pushed the envelope and would tell 3 or 4 bad jokes for one homerun.  If everyone who was offended by what a comic said got violent with them most of the good ones would be dead.  

On a side note.  Hollywood can't be the safe space for the PC police and allow their stars to walk on stage and slap the MC of their biggest event.  It's sort of the only good thing about it.  There was some ironic justice to see that play out at the Oscars.

Was thinking the same thing. But not expecting anything

Good for Will Smith, I'm sure many times in the past the 'jokers' of this world that like to make fun of people should have been punched.

However deserving of that Idiot CR, Will Smith should have been carried out in handcuffs as you or I would have been. Goes to show you that they no longer bother to hide the multi-tiered justice system (Or lack thereof) we unfortunately have in this country.

but he was seen laughing at the joke 

I think we’ve all done that and then we process what’s been said and realize we were the butt of the joke.
While there are other ways to handle your anger I can sympathize. If someone said that about my wife or my kids I’d be very upset. Wills a big dude with a big attitude and ego. I think he’s been watching too many Denzel movies.

I wasn't watching the Oscars but this is blowing up on Twitter. What the holy hell.

I imagine Will had to do some image rehab after he sat crying through an interview while his wife told the world she found a better man.  Wouldn't be surprised if Rock did him a solid and staged it to help out a fellow celeb.

Didn’t he go scorched earth a few years ago on one of these shows?

Will Smith is a dick.  Don’t let his Charisma as an actor or the likeable parts he’s played fool you. He’s every a**hole god complex drama kid except with power and success. Same as most actors in the real. Hope Rock presses charges.

First, the Oscar’s, I could care less. I review the nominations and watch a few, but the ceremony is a waste of time. Second, off color jokes are fine, most comedy come at someone’s expense. Third, it was a sucker punch, what a coward. Fourth, OL and WR in Round 1.

It was an inappropriate joke but slapping the guy on live television?  Talk about a lack of self-control.  And Will Smith laughed after Chris Rock told the joke too.

EDIT: I didn't watch the Oscars btw.  I only watched the ~2 minute clip.

It wasnt an inappropriate joke.  It was a joke, a good one for a couple who throw themselves and their kids into the public eye.  Rock looking at Jada with a short crew cut haircut said looking forward to you in "GI Jane 2"  Smith laughed, thought it over and slapped Rock, who hardly moved making me think it might be fake if it weren't for the long audio black out and ABC freezing the screen so you couldn't see anything else if it occurred or not.  

Smith has been having issues with the press over his wife's coming out as Bi, having relationships with another woman and now living in an open marriage.  Hes been unhinged for a while over this.  Bet he was thinking this was a lesbian joke, not an alopecia joke
