The 94th Academy Awards was going smooth as a baby’s bottom until Will Smith smacked the taste out of Chris Rock‘s mouth for making a joke about Jada Pinkett Smith‘s hair.

Chris came out to present the award for Best Documentary and decided to get a few jokes off first.

The legendary comedian pointed out Jada’s shaved head and said he couldn’t wait to see G.I. Jane 2.

Initially, Will laughed with the rest of the audience, but Jada’s body language and her eye roll made it very clear that she didn’t find anything funny.

Seconds later, Will Smith walked up on stage, slapped Chris Rock across the face, and walked back to his seat.

Chris was completely stunned as he said:

Wow. Will Smith just smacked the sh*t outta me!

Will responded:

Keep my wife’s name out your f**kin mouth!

Keep my wife’s name out your f**kin mouth!

Yep. He said it twice!

You may recall, Jada Pinkett Smith has been very transparent about her challenges and struggles with alopecia.

Everyone in the room was confused because they weren’t sure if this was staged or if Will really smacked the shiznit out of Chris at the OSCARS!!!

ABC did its best to edit the moment….

Watch the uncensored clip below.

The Hollywood Reporter shared a clip of Tyler Perry and Denzel Washington having a pow-wow with Will after the smackdown.

About 20 minutes later, Will won the Oscar for Best Actor for his performance in King Richard!

During his acceptance speech, he apologized for smacking Chris Rock.

Both Will Smith and Chris Rock are trending in the streets of Twitter as people react to the moment.
