The 94th Academy Awards held in the Dolby Theater of Los Angeles saw some crazy events which went viral all over the Internet. Chris Rock, who had just entered the stage, made a joke about Jada Pinkett Smith, Will Smith’s wife. Will then got up from his seat and walked over to the stage, slapping Chris hard in the face. Will warned Rock not to say “my wife’s name” out loud. Chris Rock is a stand-up comedian from the United States. This slap is quite unusual but whether it’s scripted or real is not known. However, Smith apologized for his actions.
Apart from the slap controversy, a two-minute prayer was held in solidarity of Ukraine at this occasion. A plea was also issued for anyone who is able to come forward as well as defend/ support Ukraine in the war against Russia’s invasion.
