At the 2022 Oscar ceremony, minutes before Will Smith took the Best Actor statuette for his work in “King Richard: Creating Champions”, Chris Rock improvised a joke about the look of Jada Pinkett Smith, actress and wife of fellow actor Will Smith, who lives with the autoimmune disease alopecia, which causes hair loss.

Outraged, Smith went on stage and ended up slapping the comedian in the face. Upon returning to his seat, the actor shouted “Take my wife’s name out of your f*cking mouth.”

On April 1, the actor decided to send a letter to the Academy asking for his membership to be revoked. A week later, the institution announced that the actor is barred from attending the Oscars or related events for the next 10 years. Comedian Chris Rock did not press charges against the actor.

Shortly afterwards, in June 2022, Will Smith's wife Jada declared that she hopes the actor and comedian can reconcile, during an episode of her show Red Table Talk.
