As the 94th Academy Awards neared its end, one of the biggest surprises rocked the night: An intense exchange after Will Smith confronted Chris Rock on stage after Rock made a joke about Smith’s wife Jada Pinkett Smith’s hair. Just minutes later, Smith won his first Oscar, taking home Best Actor for his role in “King Richard.”
Rock joked that he was looking forward to a sequel to “G.I. Jane” starring Pinkett Smith, leading Will Smith to make his way to the stage and smack Rock.
After returning to his seat, Smith shouted to Rock to “keep my wife’s name out of your f***ing mouth.” The exchange came as a surprise to many in the audience, as actress Lupita Nyong’o, who was seated near Smith, and could be seen on camera, looked completely shocked. ABC silenced the audio of exchange due to the profanity, leaving viewers watching at home initially confused about what happened.
