Will Smith hits Chris Rock – level 1

01-04-2022 07:00

Actor Will Smith smacks the host Chris Rock at the Oscars 2022.

Rock makes a joke about Smith’s wife. Rock says that she will play in ‘G. I. Jane 2’. G. I. Jane is a movie from 1997. Demi Moore plays in the movie. She has very short hair. Rock’s joke means that Smith looks like G. I. Jane.

When Rock says the joke, Will Smith walks up to him. He smacks Rock. He returns to his seat. Smith is very angry. He shouts at Rock.

Will Smith’s wife has alopecia. A person with alopecia loses hair. Some patients lose only some hair. Some people lose hair on all their body. Scientists don’t know why it happens.

Difficult words: smack (to hit someone with the hand), host (a person who entertains other people as guests), patient (an ill person).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
