Will Smith slaps Chris Rock at the 94th Academy Awards over wife Jada Pinkett Smith joke as Apple TV+'s CODA wins Best Picture.
"Keep my wife's name out of your fucking mouth," Will Smith then said.
"I'm going to. That's the greatest night in the history of television," Chris Rock said, with Will Smith that repeated his phrase, louder and more deliberately.
Will Smith later won the Oscar for playing Richard Williams, the father of tennis stars Venus and Serena Williams. Will Smith apologised to the Academy but not to Chris Rock when he accepted his award.
"Richard Williams was a fierce defender of his family," Will Smith said. "I hope the Academy invites me back."
The Academy in a statement said "The Academy does not condone violence of any form".
The recorded version of the 94th Academy Awards will be shown on M-Net (DStv 101) on Monday night at 21:30.
