Will Smith’s slap stopped stars from drinking: Oscars bartenders

Hollywood’s elite were shocked into a state of sobriety after Will Smith Chris Rock spectacularly slapped at the Oscars on Sunday night.

Daniel Ralston, who was serving drinks at the event, reportedly wrote on Twitter Monday, “Barted the Oscars. Everyone stopped drinking after the slap.”

The tweet – seen by The Independent – has since been deleted.

In a second deleted tweet, Ralston reportedly wrote that the nicest celebrities of the night were Rami Malek and Reba McEntire.

It’s unclear what prompted Ralston to remove the tweets, but he did post afterwards another message saying, “The lesson here is to never tweet.”

He also shared a photo of himself serving a drink with the “Mr. Robot” star in the foreground writing, “Hi everyone who’s been following me for hot celebrity gossip. That’s the extent of what I can tweet about my job bartending private events, unless you want drink recipes. I think I made a lemondrop in this picture.”

At Sunday night’s Oscars, Smith stormed onto the stage and slapped Rock in the face after the prankster made a joke about Smith’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith.

Rock compared Pinkett Smith – who suffers from alopecia and shaved her head last summer – to Demi Moore’s bald character from the movie GI Jane, which triggered Smith’s slap in the face.

“Keep my wife’s name out of your damn mouth!” Smith then yelled – twice – after returning to his seat.

A visibly stunned Rocker continued with his set before exiting the stage. Just minutes later, Smith won the Oscar for best actor for his role in King Richard.

blacksmith apologized to the academy and his fellow candidates during his acceptance speech. He omitted Rock’s name in particular at the time, but he has since done so issued a formal apology.

The academy said it was Investigation of the incident in a “formal review” that will “investigate further measures and consequences”.

Meanwhile, Tuesday morning, Jada finally responded to the controversyposted on Instagram and said it was “a season of healing and that’s what I’m here for”.
