Last night's Oscar awards were more like an MMA fight!
Comedian Chris Rock made a joke about Jada Pinkett Smith's hair and Will Smith wasn't having it. Will walked up on stage and smacked Chris Rock right across the face!
"Oh wow," said Rock as Smith made his way back to his seat. "Will Smith just smacked the s--- out of me."
In case you didn't know, Jada has experienced hair loss due to the autoimmune disorder alopecia that impacts the hair follicles, resulting in both bald spots and hair loss.
"Keep my wife's name out your f---ing mouth!" Smith yelled up to the stage at Rock after taking his seat again.
The majority of the audio was dropped from the television broadcast, but thanks to international broadcasts we have the uncensored altercation.

Later in the evening, Will Smith took the stage to accept his award for Best Actor. His tearful acceptance speech included an apology to the Academy and his fellow nominees. He did not include Chris Rock in his apology.
A full statement from the Los Angeles Police Department reads:
“LAPD investigative entities are aware of an incident between two individuals during the Academy Awards program. The incident involved one individual slapping another. The individual involved has declined to file a police report. If the involved party desires a police report at a later date, LAPD will be available to complete an investigative report.”
