Award-winning American actor, Will Smith punched comedian, Chris Rock at the Oscar Awards, live on television yesterday.
This was after Rock made a GI Jane joke about Smith’s wife, Jada. He got up and went to the stage and punched him in the face. He then walked back to his seat and said, “keep my wife’s name out of your f***ing mouth.”
Of course, tweeps weighed in on the matter.
Denzel Washington is a wise OG for telling Will Smith “at the highest moment becareful that’s when the devil comes for you” 💯 facts. Will and Chris should sort this out… #Oscars #AcademyAwards pic.twitter.com/wgMbDmuOhf

This is my last tweet on the whole Will and Chris but I feel like this needs to be said:
“The most disrespected person in America is the Black woman. The most unprotected person in America is the Black woman. The most neglected person in America is the Black woman.”

If you think Will and Chris's catastrophe was staged, just wait for Kanye v Trevor Noah at the Grammys coming soon 😅 pic.twitter.com/0V4iowm1fF
