Will Smith

The MMA world has been reacting to Will Smith attacking Chris Rock at the 94th Oscars after the comedian made a joke about his wife during the ceremony.

“Jada, can’t wait for GI Jane 2,” Rock said in an apparent reference to her shaved head, which is a result of the hair loss condition alopecia.

Smith was initially seen laughing at the joke while his wife seemed less than amused before the camera pans away and the next time we see Smith he is on stage charging toward Rock and unleashing a slap.
