American actor, Will Smith has set the internet ablaze after his altercation with comedian, Chris Rock who threw a jab at his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith.
On Sunday night, March 27, Hollywood actor and actresses gathered at the 2022 Oscar without a thought that an altercation would occur.
As comedian, Chris Rock stepped on the stage to give his performance, he made a joke about Jada’s bald hair.
It is no longer news that Jada Pinkett Smitt keeps a lowcut which is due to her suffering from Alopecia.
Will Smith who wasn’t impressed with his jokes shocked many when he went on stage and slapped the comedian.
Smith warned him to keep his wife’s name out of his mouth, though he has since apologised to the academy while receiving award as the Best Actor, he didn’t apologize to Chris.
Social media has been thrown into a frenzy following the assault.
Nigerians who weighed into it, stated that Smith should have channeled that same energy on August Alsina, who was in an entanglement with his wife.
