The 94th Annual Academy Awards took a wild turn on Sunday night.
It was reported that after the joke was made about a sequel to “G.I Jane” and Pinkett Smith’s bald head, Smith was deeply offended and walked toward Rock, slapping him in the face before returning to his seat.
He then, which the Oscars live-stream muted, began yelling at Rock. Smith reportedly said, “Take my wife’s name out of your (expletive) mouth.”
Pinkett Smith has been open about her struggle with hair loss.
The Dolby Theatre was shocked and so was Rock, as he appeared to struggle after the encounter to regain his train of thought.
Rock and Smith’s reps, along with the Academy, did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for a comment.
Following the incident, Smith took home the best actor award Sunday evening for his performance in “King Richard.” While giving his acceptance speech, Smith was in tears.
“I wanna apologize to the academy. I wanna apologize to all my fellow nominees,” he said. “This is a beautiful moment and I’m not crying for winning an award. It’s not about winning an award for me, it’s about being able to shine light on all of the people.”
