Ricky Gervais Reveals How He’d Open the Oscars, Subtly Touches on Slapping Incident

March 29, 2022

The Academy Awards had everybody talking after what happened during the ceremony on Sunday night, but not for the best reasons. During the show, comedian Chris Rock joked about Jada Pinkett Smith’s shaved head, a comment that has sparked backlash considering her struggles with alopecia, a condition that causes hair loss. Smith then approached Rock on the stage and slapped him across the face before returning to his seat and shouting at Rock to stop joking about his wife. The King Richard star’s behavior has also generated great controversy with many calling for the actor to face legal consequences or lose his Oscar for physically attacking Rock, regardless of what the comedian said.
