Watch the shocking incident
At 94th Academy Awards an unbelievable event shocked everyone when Will Smith got angry to a joke made by Chris Rock about his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith. After Rock joked to Smith that he was looking forward to a sequel to “G.I. Jane,” Smith stood up from his seat near the stage, went towards Rock and slapped him and it didn’t end over there.
After sitting back down, Smith shouted at Rock to “keep my wife’s name out of your (foul language) mouth.”
