Chris Rock Gets Slapped By Will Smith

The social media upload comes shortly after Rock, 57, made a joke about the Girls Trip star’s shaved head while presenting an award on Sunday, March 27. Pinkett Smith,who has been candid about her alopecia diagnosis  , rolled her eyes at the comment.

In response, Smith, 53, approached the stage and slapped the comedian on camera before the live segment was muted.

At the time, a source exclusively told Us Weekly that people were worried about chris rock and will smith but they weren’t going to see each other at the awards show. 

“The higher-ups from the Academy, once they realized the slap was real, were first focused on making sure Chris was OK,” the insider revealed on Monday, March 28, noting that it wasn’t immediately clear whether the incident was staged.

 “Several workers went to check on [Chris] after the slap and he told everyone he was fine.”According to a second source, the pair “did not see each other” after the altercation. “Everyone knew where Chris and Will were afterward and were not about to let them interact again for safety reasons,” the first insider shared.
