Jay Leno gave a statement on Will Smith Oscars Incident
Jay Leno said, “To me, the thing that’s most disturbing wasn’t the slap, because he was kind of smirking after he slapped,”. “It was the yelling of the obscenities. Then you go, ‘Whoa. What’s going on here? This is real anger.’ “
Leno also added “After the incident, the Academy said it would “follow an official process that will take a few weeks.”.“What are you investigating?”
“It had to be the most recorded assault in history. I saw the back of his shoe. I saw Chris’ ear. There were so many cameras on this incident. What are you investigating? I know sometimes things are just what they appear to be.”
After this incident, Smith resigned from his AMPAS membership and the Oscar Academy banned Smith for the next 10 years. Billy Crystal also called the Smith-Chris Rock incident “most disturbing incident, for sure.”.
