A CNN analyst appeared to blame the chaos at the Oscars that saw Will Smith slap Chris Rock on live television and then get a standing ovation after winning an award on former President Donald Trump.
Smith calmly walked on stage and slapped an unsuspecting Rock across the face after he made a joke about his wife. The crowd wasn’t sure if it was real until Smith screamed from his seat, visibly angry, telling Rock to keep his wife’s name out of his mouth. The stunned crowd later gave Smith a standing ovation after he won.
Enter CNN’s Asha Rangappa who said: “So did like anyone walk out after that happened??? Or are we getting an independent psychological case study on how Trump got normalized?”
Rock said, “Jada, I love you. G.I. Jane 2, can’t wait to see it, alright.” G.I Jane was movie with Demi Moore as a lieutenant in the Navy. Jada Smith suffers from alopecia and is losing her hair. (See Video Below)

Smith laughed and got up and slapped Rock across the face causing Rock to say after a brief pause:
“Wow, Will Smith just smacked the sh*t out of me.”
“Get my wife’s name out of your f*cking mouth,” Smith yelled back from his seat.
“Wow, dude. It was a G.I. Jane joke,” Rock said.
“Keep my wife’s name out of your f*cking mouth,” Smith yelled.
“I am going to, okay,” Rock said.
“That was the greatest night in the history of television,” Rock said.
