Will Smith slapping comedian Chris Rock at Oscars 2022 has become the talk of the town. The surreal confrontation was sparked when Smith, a best-actor nominee, took umbrage at Rock for making a crack about his wife's, actress Jada Pinkett Smith who suffers from a hair loss condition called alopecia, closely shaven hair as the comedian was about to present the award for best documentary. The unprecedented physical altercation upstaged the final half hour of the show and will certainly go down as one of the most memorable moments in Oscar history. (Image: Reuters)
