Until now, the wildest live TV moment of all time was possibly Kanye West interrupting Taylor Swift at the VMAs so many years ago. It was live, unexpected, and was all you would hear about for weeks. Tonight, during the Oscars, that moment was surpassed by the most unexpected moment in awards show history.

While Chris Rock took the stage to present the award for Best Documentary Feature, he had to deliver some jokes first. In the last joke, he poked fun at Jada Pinkett-Smith’s bald head, saying he can’t wait to see her in G.I. Jane 2. Before he knew it, Will Smith was walking towards him on stage and without hesitation, slapped the taste right out his mouth.

The immediate reaction on the crowd’s face was giving that it was staged. But, as Will got back to his seat, he yelled to Chris Rock, “KEEP MY WIFE’S NAME OUT YOUR F***NG MOUTH.” The room went silent as Chris Rock tried to defend himself before Will repeated the same with the room completely silent.

You just have to see it for yourself, you can watch the clip below.

In his acceptance speech, Smith addressed the incident and even compared it to Richard Williams’ fiery spirit.

“Richard Williams was a fierce defender of his family,” Smith said in his speech, fighting back tears. He said he got the chance to “protect” his co-stars in “King Richard.” “I’m being called on in my life to love people and to protect people, and to be a river to my people,” he said, tears streaming down his face. Will spoke on how in the entertainment industry, performers are forced to “take abuse” as “people talk crazy about you.”

While Will’s speech was genuine and real the jokes on Twitter are still flying.
