The noise echoed through the silence of the room, and it was not clear at first whether it was a bad joke or a real altercation. It was the sound of Best Actor nominee Will Smith slapping Chris Rock, who was hosting the Oscars on Sunday, March 27. A joke about his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith’s shaved head, did not please the artist, who reacted violently. His children, Jaden and Willow, gave him their support on social networks.

Immediate support from Will Smith's children

‘And That's How We Do It,’ tweeted Jaden Smith, Will and Jada Pinkett Smith's eldest son, after his father slapped comedian Chris Rock, who was presenting the award.
