Hollywood’s big night fell into chaos after Will Smith walked on stage and slapped Chris Rock in the face on live television. Many thought it looked stage until Smith returned to his seat and heckled Rock telling him to keep his wife’s name ‘out of his f*cking mouth.’
“You know who’s got the hardest job tonight? Javier Bardem and his wife are both nominated. Now, if she loses, he can’t win! He is praying that Will Smith wins, like, please, lord!” Rock said before turning to Will and Jada Smith.
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 was seen laughing before getting up and walking on stage to confront an unsuspecting Rock. He slapped Rock across the face causing Rock to say after a 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.
