Jada Pinkett Smith: New footage shows the reaction to Chris Rock’s reaction after Will Smith punched him

Footage of Jada Pinkett Smith reacting to Will Smith slapping Chris Rock at the Oscars has surfaced online.

Rock presented an award at the Oscars when he dubbed Pinkett Smith “GI Jane” in reference to her shaved head.

Pinkett Smith, who has previously spoken about alopecia, could be seen rolling her eyes at the joke, which prompted laughter from the crowd.

In response, Smith won Best Actor King RichardHe took the stage and slapped Rock before returning to his seat. Once there, he shouted twice, “Keep my wife’s name out of your damn mouth.”

Rock was speechless for a moment before saying, “Will Smith just threw the shit out of me.”

Footage apparently filmed on a cellphone and shared on TikTok shows the viewpoint of someone seated behind the Smiths, who were in the front row.

While Pinkett Smith’s facial expressions cannot be seen, she can be seen bending over with laughter at Rock’s response.

When her husband starts screaming next to her, she remains rigid in an upright position, but appears to be laughing as Rock, calming down, tries to shake off the moment, calling it “the greatest night in television history.”

Additional footage shows a dazed Rock looking around in shock minutes after the incident.

While Smith has since apologized to Rock, the comedian said on Wednesday (March 30) he’s “still processing” what happened during his first stand-up show since the incident. Sources close to Rock said he had “no idea” about Pinkett Smith’s condition.

The academy said in a statement Wednesday it had instituted “disciplinary proceedings” against Smith for violating its standards of conduct, “including inappropriate physical contact, abusive or threatening behavior and endangering the integrity of the academy.”

Smith now faces possible suspensions, expulsion or other sanctions, which will be decided at the Academy’s next board meeting on April 18.

In its statement, the academy also revealed that Smith was asked to leave the ceremony but was “declined.”
