The celebrity series slammed Will Smith and Chris Rock after the notorious incident at this year’s Oscars had just begun.

The Kimi the star shared a picture of herself on the Oscars red carpet and she wrote: “There’s a picture of my dress at the awards show where we seem to be attacking people on stage right now.”

This is Zoe’s post:
Will Smith slapped Chris Rock at the Oscars, who was presenting the awards. The comedian said he couldn’t wait to see Pinkett Smith star in ‘GI Jane 2’ which pushed Smith up on stage and slapped Chris Rock.

Will Smith did apologize at the Oscars but only to the Academy and his fellow candidates. His official apology to Chris Rock came just a day later. The statement read, “I want to openly apologize to you, Chris. I was out of line and I was wrong. I was ashamed and my actions did not show the man I wanted. There is no place for violence in the world of love and kindness.”
Here is his full apology:
Meanwhile, Jim Carrey, during his appearance at CBS Morning said so about the incident, “I’m fed up. I’m fed up with the roaring applause, feeling like Hollywood isn’t in a crowd,” referring to the moment Will Smith took to the stage to receive the Best Actor award for his role in King Richard | and was given thunderous applause for winning his first Oscar even though he slapped Chris Rock on stage minutes earlier. He added, “And it’s just – it really feels, ‘Oh, this is a very clear indication that we’re not a great club anymore.’ He added that if he were in Chris Rock’s position, he would “sue” Will Smith.
