Will Smith slapped award presenter Chris Rock on stage during the 94th Oscars live broadcast, sparking controversy.Comedian Jim Carrey said in a recent interview with the media that Will Smith’s behavior should be arrested, and his selfish behavior has cast a shadow over every nominee’s glorious moment.
Jim Carrey also felt that Will Smith’s standing ovation after winning the Oscar was cowardly and spineless.
“I’m sick of the standing ovation. Hollywood in general is just spineless, and it’s really made it clear that we’re not a cool club anymore.”
Jim Carrey was promoting “Sonic the Hedgehog 2” in an interview with CBS Morings. He believes that Will Smith should be arrested. The host pointed out that Chris Rock has dropped the prosecution. Jim Carrey said: “He just doesn’t want to cause trouble. .”
For the first time in Oscars history, Chris Rock was slapped by Smith in front of live cameras after joking about Jada Pinkett Smith’s appearance.
Jim Carrey added: “If you want me, it’s going to announce a $200 million lawsuit against Will Smith because that video is going to be there forever, it’s going to be everywhere. This insult is going to go on for a long time. You can be in the audience. Shout out and show your disapproval of the joke. Or say something on Twitter, but you don’t have the right to go on stage and slap someone in the face, it’s just that they said it.”
The host didn’t think it could escalate, Jim Carrey said, “It’s not an escalation, it’s really for no reason, is there something in Will that’s frustrating him?”
“I hope Will Smith is well, I really think so. I’m not specifically attacking him, he’s done a lot of great things, but this one is pretty bad.”
“It’s overshadowed everyone’s shining moments. A lot of people have worked so hard to get there, to be awarded for their hard work, and when you’re nominated for an Oscar, you have to go through everything. But This selfish moment (Will Smith hitting people on stage) casts a shadow over the whole thing.”
