Will Smith is pulled aside and comforted by Denzel Washington and Tyler Perry during Oscars commercial break after he slapped Chris Rock in the face

Best actor winner Will Smith was seen being consoled by Denzel Washington and Tyler Perry after he smacked presenter Chris Rock in the face with an open hand during the Oscars live broadcast on Sunday night.

Smith could be seen shouting a vulgarity at the comedian for making a joke about his wife’s appearance who were both sitting in the front row at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood. 

Rock made a joke about the hairstyle of Smith’s wife Jada Pinkett Smith that referenced the movie ‘G.I. Jane’ in which actress Demi Moore shaved her head.

Smith, who is nominated for best actor for ‘King Richard,’ walked on stage and slapped Rock in what at first appeared to be a scripted joke, but the mood turned to shock moments later when Smith, back in his seat, shouted back, ‘Keep my wife’s name out of your f***ing mouth.’

After Rock joked to Smith that he was looking forward to a sequel to ‘G.I. Jane,’ Smith stood up from his seat near the stage, strode up to Rock and slapped him.

The moment shocked the Dolby Theatre audience and viewers at home.

Before that, the show had been running fairly smoothly.
