Viewers of this years Oscars awards were confused and shocked to see Will Smith physically hit Chris Rock, who was hosting the awards, on stage. The slap came after Chris told an insensitive bald joke about Will’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, who suffers from alopecia.

Just days ago, the Academy Of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences announced Will Smith would be banned for a duration of 10 years over the hit. Will took home his first ever Oscar win that night for his portrayal of Venus and Serena’s tennis coach father in the film “King Richard”.

Since, Will has resigned from the Academy and issued an apology to viewers, attendees, and Chris himself.
