Stars react to Will Smith hitting Chris Rock at the Oscars

Stars react to Will Smith hitting Chris Rock at the Oscars
Director Judd Apatow deleted a tweet that received criticism after he claimed Smith ‘could have killed’ Rock

Comedians Judd Apatow et Kathy Griffin were among those who took to social media to react to Will Smith, after he struck Chris Rock on stage during the Oscars.

Rock was presenting the award for Best Documentary when he made a joke about Jada Pinkett Smith’s appearance.

“Jada, I love you. GI Jane 2, can’t wait to see you,” he quipped in an apparent reference to the actor’s shaved head.

Smith then walked on stage and struck the comedian, yelling “keep my wife’s name out your f***ing mouth”.

The shocking incident made for possibly the most dramatic Oscars ceremony in the history of the Academy Awards.

In a since-deleted tweet, Knocked Up director Apatow was highly critical of Smith’s actions, commenting: “He could have killed him. That’s pure out of control rage and violence. They’ve heard a million jokes about them in the last three decades. They are not freshman in the world of Hollywood and comedy. He lost his mind.”

Author, professor and social commentator Roxane Day called Apatow out for his remark, tweeting in response: “This is a wild thing to say Judd. As a fan, I urge you to really rethink this. It was not uncontrolled violence. The video is widely available so you know this.”

Comedian Griffin expressed her concern that Smith’s actions would make life more dangerous for people in her profession. “Let me tell you something, it’s a very bad practice to walk up on stage and physically assault a comedian," a-t-elle écrit sur Twitter. “Now we all have to worry about who wants to be the next Will Smith in comedy clubs and theaters.”

Rappeur 50 Cent, d'autre part, captioned an image of the slap with the line: “B!tch don’t you ever play with me. LOL”

Abbott Elementary creator Quinta Brunson commenté: “What a very west Philly Oscars,” while Smith’s former Fresh Prince of Bel Air co-star Jazzy Jeff tweeted simply: “What was that????"

Conan O’Brien meanwhile plaisanté that he was sad not to have the opportunity to discuss the incident on air. “Just saw the Will Smith slap," il a écrit. “Anyone have a late night show I can borrow just for tomorrow?"

Late night host Jimmy Kimmel referenced Smith’s starring role on The Fresh Prince of Bel Air and Rock’s role voicing puppet Lil Penny in a series of Nike commercials. “What was the vegas line on the fresh prince punching little penny in the face?” joked Kimmel.

Smith’s son, actor and rapper Jaden, tweeté, “And That’s How We Do It” in a since-deleted tweet.

He also deleted a selfie with the caption: “My Dads Speech Made Me Cry.”

One Direction’s Liam Payne admitted he was so shocked by the incident he left his seat.

Many others found the incident less amusing.

“It was just a joke,” actor Mia Farrow tweeted. “Jokes are what Chris Rock does. Always has been edgy. This was a mild joke for him. And I love GI Jane.”

““Violence isn’t ok. Assault is never the answer,” tweeted actor Sophia Bush. "Aussi? This is the second time that Chris has made fun of Jada on the Oscars stage, and tonight he went after her alopecia.

“Punching down at someone’s auto-immune disease is wrong. Doing so on purpose is cruel. They both need a breather.”

During his Best Actor winner’s speech for le roi Richard, Smith shared what Denzel Washington told him in the aftermath of the incident.
