Did Will Smith do the right thing?

Chris Rock was presenting the award for the best documentary during the biggest night of the year in Hollywood. Rock, in his vintage comedian flair, had to crack some jokes. That is his job, and the comedian just wanted to entertain everyone. While talking on the mic, Chris joked about Jada Pinkett Smith. At first, it looked like Will Smith enjoyed the joke. But when he saw his wife, things changed.

Something changed in the actor. It was like a switch being turned on. He walked down the stage towards Rock and smacked him across the face. Everyone, including Chris Rock, could not process what just happened. The entire world was shocked to see Will Smith behave like this. 

Smith walked back to his seat and yelled at Rock. He told the comedian to keep Jada’s name out of his mouth. The situation got very uncomfortable.

He adds, “I told you don’t do this, and you did it. I told you so, I’m gonna see you after. I’m not about to mess this moment up. I’ve been working too hard for this moment, and I’m not about to let you mess this up. I’m not about to let the headlines read, me and you get into a fight or ‘I smacked you.’ I want the headline to read, ‘I’m the fifth African-American man who has won for best actor.'”
