Will Smith choosing “chaos” by slapping Chris Rock might cost the King Richard actor his Oscar!

The streets are still buzzin’ over The Fresh Prince presenting Chris Rock with a Big Willie Style slap while onstage at the Oscars. The now-infamous interaction between the two happened after Chris made a “G.I. Jane” joke about Jada Pinkett-Smith who recently decided to go bald because of her alopecia.


The Academy announced they don’t condone violence after Hollywood heavyweights weighed in on Will putting the paws on Chris. Judd Apatow said Will’s actions were “pure out of control rage and violence;” Stephen A. Smith said Will should be ashamed of himself, and fellow comedian Kathy Griffin expressed concerns for possible copycat offenders.




Insiders now say Will could lose his Oscar for Best Actor in King Richard. According to The New York Post, The Academy’s code of conduct—which aims to foster “supportive environments, and “respect for human dignity”—does not tolerate those who “abuse their status” in a matter that “violates recognized standards of decency,” CEO Dawn Hudson explained when the code of conduct went into effect in 2017 post the Harvey Weinstein scandal.
