This Sunday, March 27, in the middle of the Oscars ceremony, an incident occurred on stage. Indeed, comedian Chris Rock, who came to award the prize for Best Documentary, made a joke about the hairstyle of Will Smith’s wife. He asked her in front of all the guests if she would play in “GI Jane 2”, a reference to the film “GI Jane” in which Demi Moore played the shaved head. But this joke about the disease of Jada Pinkett Smith who suffers from alopecia, went badly with the actor of “I am a legend”. Will Smith then punched Chris Rock hard in the face before yelling at him to keep “his wife’s name out of his fucking mouth”. An act of violence that the actor, winner of the Oscar for Best Actor, then regretted.

What I did was wrong and I was wrong,” he said. Excuses that Chris Rock should accept since according to the statements of P.Diddy, the two men would have already reconciled.
