On the morning of March 28 (Vietnam time), the audience present at the Dolby Theater was stunned when actor Will Smith suddenly rushed onto the stage to punch Chris Rock in the face .
The reason was that the comedian had teased his wife Will Smith’s hair.
On stage, Chris Rock took on the role of announcing the nominees for the award for Best Documentary Feature.
While pushing the story, the actor said that he can’t wait for Jada Pinkett Smith – Will Smith’s wife to play the lead role of Brave Woman 2 , because she is shaving her head like GI Jane.
Before this subtle joke, Will Smith climbed onto the stage and punched Chris Rock in the face before issuing a warning: “Get my wife’s name out of your stinking mouth”.
After the unexpected incident, netizens raised two opposing opinions. Some people think that Will Smith has acted excessively rude on the big event stage, while others support the actor to protect his wife from offensive jokes.
Anyway, this is not the first time Chris Rock has targeted Jada Pinkett Smith.
