Will Smith approached Rock from the audience and Slapped him Just after Rock made a joke about Pinkett Smith's baldness

Rock mentioned Smith's nomination for "King Richard" and in the next breath, made a joke about Pinkett Smith starring in a sequel to "G.I. Jane," due to her bald head.

In 2018, Pinkett Smith opened up about her hair loss due to alopecia and in 2021 revealed a shaved head.

During his acceptance speech a short time later, Smith tearfully talked about the importance of protecting his family. "Love will make you do crazy things," he said.
