No, Will Smith will not be arrested for slapping Chris Rock at the Oscars. He won’t face police charges. Will Smith slapped the comic Chris Rock after a series of jokes about his wife Jade Smith Jones onstage. Chris Rock has refused to file a police report,after Will Smith slapped him in the face at the Oscars on Sunday night.
Reason Behind The Slap.
It started when the comedian made a joke about Will’s Wife Jada Pinkett Smith’s buzzcut, saying “Jada, can’t wait for GI Jane 2. Smith then walked up to the stage and slapped the presenter,returned to his seat and then yelling,“Keep my wife’s name out of your f****ng mouth.”
Cris made the joke in reference to the 1997 movie G.I Jane,which starred Demi Moore,who had a buzzcut similar to Jada’s. Jada opened up about her decision to shave her head, after suffering from alopecia. A spokesperson for the force says it is “aware of an incident between two individuals during the Academy Awards program,which involved one individual slapping another”. He also went on to say “The individual involved has declined to file a police report. If the involved party desires a police report at a later date, LAPD will be available to complete an investigative report.” Chris later on expressed how he felt about the evening saying “That was the greatest night in the history of television.”
