Chris Rock ‘Declined to File Police Report’ Following Oscars Altercation with Will Smith

March 28, 2022

The 94th Academy Awards have been controversial from the moment it announced its nominees for a number of reasons, so it is only fitting that the biggest talking point of the night had nothing to do with the winners and losers of the event, but for the slapping of host Chris Rock by award winner Will Smith for a joke about his wife, Jada Pinkett-Smith. Following the incident, it was revealed by the Los Angeles Police Department that they were aware of the incident, which could be classed as assault, but would not be pursuing it as Rock had declined the chance to lodge a complaint.
