Actress Jada Pinkett Smith, Will Smith and US actor Chris Rock | ETIENNE LAURENT
What a palaver! Hollywood film star and the recipient of a Best Actor Oscar, Will Smith, with one swipe of his hand seems to have completely changed the news priorities for both newspapers and all other media outlets alike. Indeed, social media is full of an ongoing heated debate as to who was really to blame for the incident. Remember, if you can - Oscar ceremony host, comedian Chris Rock made a rather unpleasant jibe at Smith’s wife Jada’s problem regarding hair loss and then all hell was let loose as Will Smith marched on stage and slapped Mr Rock hard across the face for his trouble.
