- Will Smith slapped Chris Rock at the Oscars
- He later apologized while accepting the award
- Chris made a joke to Will’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith
All the drama that was missing from the last few years of the Academy Awards turned into an unexpectedly big controversy. Will Smith was clearly the headline for his episode with Chris Rock at the 94th Academy Awards from his first Oscar win for his performance in the film King Richard |. When Chris Rock appeared on stage to present the award for Best Documentary Feature, he made a joke about Will Smith’s wife and actress, Jada Pinkett Smith being in “GI Jane” because of her appearance, which sparked The Pursuit of Happiness the actor, who hit Chris Rock and returned to his seat and shouted, “Keep my wife’s name out of your f ***** g mouth.” Later, while receiving the Best Actor trophy, Will Smith apologized to the Academy and its nominees.
Needless to say, Twitter has a lot to say – for starters, there were tweets slamming Will Smith for his actions. Second, another Academy -winning actress is becoming a big time trend for her very honest expression. Lupita Nyong’o, who sits next to Will Smith, had the most transparent reaction to the entire episode. Twitter’s collective response to the entire Will Smith-Chris Rock episode can best be summed up through Lupita Nyong’o’s reaction meme and the #Whatjusthappened trend hashtag.
“We are all Lupita,” wrote one Twitter user. The word.
