Los Angeles, CA (The Hollywood Times) 04/02/2022- Phenomenal actor Will Smith is said by some to be retiring from acting and resigning from the Academy. As some got a chance to see, the 94th Oscars offered quite a bit of entertainment. One moment in particular is what most everyone is talking about to this date: Will Smith smacking Chris Rock.
After a joke directed to Jada Pinkett Smith (involving her shaved head, due to Alopecia), Will Smith walked onstage, approached Rock, and smacked him across the face. After violenting addressing his concerns to Rock, Smith let it be known that he would like Rock to “Keep my wife’s name outcha f******g mouth”.
Shortly after, Chris Rock stammered over his own words, trying to figure out why he was just struck. He then continued as scheduled, and the show went on. While Will Smith has had an up and down couple of years, this is of the biggest of his woes we’ve seen to date. With as much inspiration, courage, and determination that Will Smith has, can this truly be the end for him? I guess we’ll have to see. One thing is for certain, if he indeed retires, he will be missed.
