During the 2022 Academy Awards, while Rock was presenting, he made a joke about Will Smith's wife and actor Jada Pinkett Smith's shaved head. It did not sit well with Smith and he took to the stage and slapped Rock.

"You reacted to your wife giving you the side-eye and you went and made her day because she was mulled over laughing when it happened," Rose Rock said.

While watching the show from home, she said that she initially thought the incident was staged until Smith began to say "take my wife's name out your f***king mouth."

"When he slapped Chris, he slapped all of us. He really slapped me," his mother said.

Meanwhile, Will Smith was spotted at a private airport in Mumbai last week– his first public appearance since the Oscars slapgate.

The Hollywood star was photographed smiling and interacting with fans at the Kalina airport on Saturday morning.
