Will Smith had a big night at the 94th Academy Awards, and it wasn’t only because he received his first Oscar. Before winning, Smith slapped Chris Rock in the face over a joke Rock made about Smith's wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, leaving viewers perplexed.
The fight erupted after Rock made a joke about Pinkett Smith playing a bald character in a prospective "G.I. Jane 2," emphasizing her hair condition. Smith then walked on stage and slapped Rock, telling him, "Keep my wife's name out of your f***ing mouth."
Pinkett Smith has already spoken about losing her hair due to alopecia, which could explain Smith's reaction. Pinkett Smith first talked about having alopecia in 2018, and she has been freely wearing her bald look since July 2021, inspiring others with the condition.
