Will Smith, who got angry with Chris Rock’s joke about his wife, who took the stage to present the award at the 94th Academy Awards, got up and slapped Rock during the ceremony and live.
The incident, which could not be understood for a moment whether it was true or not, was also discussed on social media, and uncensored images revealed that Smith was swearing.
Later, Smith apologized, while Rock made no statement. The Academy, on the other hand, first sent a message condemning the incident, and then announced that it started an investigation. There were many celebrities who commented on the event. One of the toughest of them came from comedian and actor Jim Carrey. Carrey expressed his reaction in an interview he attended.
Carrey, “The Hollywood community is a spineless bunch of people. If Smith’s move had been made against me, I would have filed a $200 million lawsuit as soon as I got up in the morning. Because that video will stay there forever. If you want to shout from your seat, show your disapproval or say something on Twitter, you can do it, but you have no right to go on stage and slap you just because someone said something.” said.
for Carrey, Smith; “I wish the best for him. I don’t have an attitude towards Smith, he did great things, but the event that happened at that moment cast a shadow on a moment where everyone was shining. Most people put in a lot of effort to get there. Smith’s move left everyone else’s success behind, it was a selfish move.” It seems that this event will occupy the agenda for a long time.
