The morning after the Oscars and everyone is still talking about that slap.

Will Smith confronting host Chris Rock on stage overshadowed Sunday night’s Academy Awards ceremony.

Whilst presenting a category at the Oscars, Rock made a joke about Jada Pinkett Smith’s hair, which her husband Will Smith didn’t take kindly to. He got the whole internet talking by approaching Rock onstage and slapping him across the face. He then shouted at him twice: “Get my wife’s name out yo f****** mouth.”

Behind the scenes footage showed Denzel Washington and Tyler Perry calming Smith down during the ad break. Shortly after, Smith was awarded the Best Actor award, his first win at the Oscars, for his performance in tennis biopic King Richard.

During his speech he made reference to the outburst and apologized to the Academy and to his fellow nominees. Neither Smith or Rock have directly addressed the incident since.
