Controversies

During the 94th Academy Awards on March 27, 2022, actor Will Smith walked onstage and slapped comedian Chris Rock across the face with an open-palm strike during Rock’s presentation of the Best Documentary Feature award. The slap was in response to a joke Rock made about Smith’s wife Jada Pinkett Smith’s shaved head, which she had been shaving since 2021 due to alopecia areata9.

In terms of lawsuits, there was an incident in 2023 where Smith denied allegations of having sexual relations with his close friend Duane Martin and planned to bring a lawsuit against the man who made the allegation10.
