Actor-director Chris Rock has reportedly refused to file a complaint against this year’s Oscar winner Will Smith after the latter smacked him on the face for cracking a joke on his wife Jada Pinkett Smith.
Chris Rock, who was one of the presenters at the 94th Academy Awards held on Monday, joked about Jada Pinkett Smith looking like GI Jane 2. “I can’t wait to see you in ‘G.I. Jane 2’,” Chris Rock said, referring to the 1997 film starring Demi Moore as a soldier with a shaved head.
Will Smith lost his cool, got up on the stage, and punched the 57-year-old Chris. The live telecast was briefly cut off after the incident.
He then took his seat and yelled at Chris. Smith said, “Keep my wife’s name out of your f***** mouth.” Chris said, “Will Smith smacked the shit out of me.”
