Will Smith slapped Chris Rock across the face at the 2022 Academy Awards. Rock was on stage presenting the nominees for Best Documentary, when he took a jab at Smith’s wife, actress Jada Pinkett Smith, saying “Jada, I love you. ‘G.I. Jane 2,’ can’t wait to see it.” The joke was likely a reference to Pinkett Smith’s baldness, who revealed her alopecia diagnosis in 2018. Following that, Smith stormed up onto the stage following the quip and slapped Rock right across the face — in a swing that was hard enough for the mic to pick up.
