The Most Controversial Oscars Yet?

For those not familiar, during the 2022 Academy Awards, the most prestigious movie awards in the world, Will Smith slapped the host and comedian, Chris Rock. The entire scuffle started when Chris Rock jokingly addressed the hairstyle of Smith’s wife and actress, Jada Pinket Smith, who after initially laughing at the joke, walked on stage, and slapped the host hard on his right cheek.

What most likely angered Smith is the fact that this spouse is suffering from a medical condition that is called Alopecia, where one of the side effects is the loss of hair. Whether Rock was familiar with this medical history of the actress or not is still not familiar, however, the reaction certainly sent shockwaves around the world.

Interestingly, Will Smith went on to receive an Academy Award for Best Male Actor for his role in King Richard, a biopic movie about tennis legends the Serena sisters. While giving the speech, Smith went on to apologize for his outburst to both the members in the audience and the organizers of the event, but not Chris Rock himself.

This was enough to divide the public opinion, just as usual. However, it seems like the majority of the comments on various social platforms express support for Chris Rock, especially for the calm and professional manner in which he conducted himself at the time.
