Will Smith walked on stage and struck Rock before returning to his seat and shouting: “Keep my wife’s name out of your [expletive] mouth.”

He later apologized on stage.

“I want to apologize to the Academy. I want to apologize to all my fellow nominees,” he said during a tearful acceptance speech for best actor.

“Art imitates life. I look like the crazy father, just like they said about Richard Williams. But love will make you do crazy things.”

As per Hollywood’s report, after the incident, a tearful Smith needed to be “pulled aside and comforted” by Denzel Washington and Tyler Perry during an advert break.

“Will and Chris, we’re going to solve that like family. Right now we’re moving on with love,” said Sean “Diddy” Combs, presenting the next section.

Chris Rock has “declined to file a police report” following the event. Plus, it wasn’t the first time Chris Rock made a joke on Pinkett Smith, in 2016’s Oscars where she didn’t join due to lack of diversity in the nominations.
