Will Smith hits Chris Rock – level 3

01-04-2022 07:00

Actor Will Smith smacked Chris Rock at the Oscars 2022 after Rock made a joke about Smith’s wife’s hair.

Rock joked to Smith that he was looking forward to a sequel to ‘G. I. Jane’. Smith stood up, walked up to Rock, and he slapped him. After returning to his seat, Smith cursed at Rock. Shortly after the confrontation, Will Smith won the Oscar for the best actor for ‘King Richard’.

In 2018, Jada Pinkett Smith revealed that she’d been diagnosed with alopecia, hair loss that can affect the scalp or the entire body. It often results in a few bald spots on the scalp, and it can be temporary or permanent. Stress and illness are the possible causes; however in most cases, there’s no obvious trigger.

Difficult words: curse (to use offensive words in anger or annoyance), confrontation (a face-to-face meeting between two people, who are angry, or they disagree with each other), trigger (to cause a reaction).
