Will Smith smacks Chris Rock on stage at Oscars

Actor Will Smith smacked presenter Chris Rock in the face with an open hand and shouted a vulgarity at the comedian for making a joke about his wife's appearance at the Oscars ceremony on Sunday (March 28).

Rock made a joke about the hairstyle of Smith's wife Jada Pinkett Smith that referenced the movie "G.I. Jane".

Smith, who later won best actor for "King Richard," walked on stage and slapped Rock in what at first appeared to be a scripted joke.

But the mood turned somber moments later when Smith, back in his seat, shouted back, "Keep my wife's name out of your f***ing mouth."
