Will Smith Makes Jokes About Slapping Chris Rock At The Oscars A Year On

Will Smith won the Oscars’ Best Actor Award for 2022, but the occasion turned messy after he slapped Chris Rock on the stage. Will Smith was banned from the awards scheme and even laid off by many producers. Smith seemed regretful back then but never really apologized to Chris Rock.

While Will is still working on becoming the respected actor he used to be, he was seen making reference to the Oscars award on TikTok and folks say that is a disrespect to Chris Rock and his fans. Folks say Smith is not supposed to refer to that award ever because he tainted it with his disgraceful act.

Via Media Take Out;

Last year Will Smith famously slapped Chris Rock in the mouth during the live broadcast of the Academy Awards after Chris made a joke about Will’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, bald head.

Will was publicly eviscerated for his violent actions and was given a ten year ban from the awards show.

Af first, Will seemed apologetic about his actions. But now, a year later, Will seems like he’s ready to joke about the incident. He even trolled folks on TikTok yesterday.

Will Smith began his acting career starring as a fictionalized version of himself on the NBC sitcom The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air (1990–1996). He first gained recognition as part of a hip hop duo with DJ Jazzy Jeff, with whom he released five studio albums and the US Billboard Hot 100 top 20 singles “Parents Just Don’t Understand”, “A Nightmare on My Street”, “Summertime”, “Ring My Bell”, and “Boom! Shake the Room” from 1984 to 1994. He released the solo albums Big Willie Style (1997), Willennium (1999), Born to Reign (2002), and Lost and Found (2005), which contained the US number-one singles “Gettin’ Jiggy wit It” and “Wild Wild West”. He has received four Grammy Awards for his rap performances.

Smith achieved wider fame as a leading man in films such as the action film Bad Boys (1995), its sequels Bad Boys II (2003) and Bad Boys for Life (2020), and the sci-fi comedies Men in Black (1997), Men in Black II (2002), and Men in Black 3 (2012). After starring in the thrillers Independence Day (1996) and Enemy of the State (1998), he received Academy Award for Best Actor nominations for his portrayal as Muhammad Ali in Ali (2001), and as Chris Gardner in The Pursuit of Happyness (2006). He then starred in a range of commercially successful films, including I, Robot (2004), Shark Tale (2004), Hitch (2005), I Am Legend (2007), Hancock (2008), Seven Pounds (2008), Suicide Squad (2016) and Aladdin (2019).

For his portrayal of Richard Williams in the biographical sports drama King Richard (2021), Smith won the Academy Award, BAFTA Award, Golden Globe Award, and Screen Actors Guild Award for Best Actor. At the 2022 Academy Awards ceremony, shortly before winning, Smith faced public backlash for slapping and shouting at Oscar presenter Chris Rock after Rock made a joke referencing Smith’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith. Smith subsequently resigned from the Academy and was banned from attending all Academy functions, including the Oscars, for ten years.

Last year’s Oscars turned Will Smith‘s life for the worst. The award turned from a good memory to a terrible one the moment he slapped Chris Rock. It is indeed weird for him to make jokes about it a year after the incident.
