Coming to you just minutes ago, Hip Hop News reports that Will Smith punches Chris Rock in his face on live television after personal joke about Jada Pinkett Smith at the 2022 Oscars.
A viral clip is circulating on Youtube and may hit major social media platforms as it continues to trend showing the full altercation and ABC’s Live tv edits that seem to make this out to be true and not a “staged” joke that viewers thought it may be.
Here’s the clip that has the internet going crazy!
According to the video, Chris Rock made a “G.I. Jane 2” joke about Jada Pinkeett Smith, pushing Will Smith over the edge so much as to walk to him and punch him in the face on national television.
Just when viewers think it’s staged, you can hear the video mute as we are sure that was ABC trying to censor what may occur as the audience was still digesting that this is actually happening.
Moments later, even with muted audi, Will Smith yells “Leave my Wife’s name out of your fuc**** mouth”.
Followed by Kenyan-Mexican actress Lupita Nyong’o’s facial expressions, the feeling of what was once thought a staged punch may have been confirmed is actually a real personal shot taken by Will Smith delivered by Chris Rock.
Chris, then to settle the audience, says ina jokingly but surprised manner, “That was uh.. Greatest night in the history of television”.. Followed by awkward scattered laughs by the audience!
