The 94th Oscar Awards ceremony will go down in history as one of the most controversial ceremonies thanks to Will Smith’s slap in the face of Chris Rock.
The Oscar winner for ‘Best Actor’ lost his temper when the comedian made a joke about his wife, Jada Smith, pointing out that he should appear in the next installment of ‘GI Jane’ due to his baldness, however, what Rock does not knew is that Jada suffers from alopecia, which is why Will was furious.
Since then, Smith has been the target of criticism for his violent reaction, but few have been as forceful as that of Jim Carrey, who said that the scene “disgusted” him and branded the audience of the Oscars as “cowards”.
Jim Carrey on Will Smith’s slap in the face: “Cowards”
Through an interview for CBS This Morning, Jim Carrey expressed his rejection of the ovation that the actor received when he was named ‘Best Actor’ for his performance in the film ‘King Richard’.
“That ovation, with people standing up, disgusted me. Hollywood is a bunch of cowards and this seems like the ultimate sign that we’re not the cool kids’ club anymore. That insult will last a long time. If you want, shout from the seats and show your displeasure, or say something on Twitter, but you have no right to get on stage and hit someone because he has said something you don’t like, “he said.
