The Oscars slap that rocked live television and Chris Rock is still sending shockwaves throughout the country as just about everybody has given their take on the situation.
While some argue that Rock’s joke about Pinkett Smith’s appearance was out of line, other comedians came to his defense saying Smith crossed the line when his reaction turned physical.
Even NFL stars like Patrick Mahomes were left floored over what happened. The Kansas City Chiefs quarterback was stunned while watching the Oscars moment unfold.
“Bro… … . .” Mahomes tweeted, followed by “Ain’t no way… .”
Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry joined Mahomes in being shocked about Smith’s outburst.
“Like everybody.. I’m still in shock about the whole thing- but in all the unnecessary drama, at least we got the line of the night from Denzel…”In your highest moments, be careful, that’s when the devil comes for you!” he wrote.
Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson meanwhile was in disbelief, unsure if what he saw from Will Smith actually went down and wasn’t at all staged.
According to the Los Angeles Police Department, Rock did not file a police report following the incident.
During his acceptance speech, he addressed the incident and apologized to The Academy.
“I know, to do what we do, you gotta be able to take abuse. You gotta be able to have people talk crazy about you. In this business, you gotta be able to have people disrespecting you and you gotta smile and pretend like that’s OK.”WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
