You can’t make this S up! A sobbing Will Smith, who was accepting the award for best actor, shared a “message of love,” just moments after clocking presenter Chris Rock violently with an open hand live on-air.

“In what appears to be a moment entirely not scripted, Will Smith then got out of his seat and took to the stage, slapping Rock before returning to his seat. Though ABC silenced the audio, Smith could be seen yelling “Keep my wife’s name out of your f-cking mouth,” as Rock tried to continue his monologue, reports ComicBook.”

With tears streaming down his face, Smith stood to address the crowd after winning Best Actor,

“I’m being called on in my life to love people and to protect people, and to be a river to my people. I know to do what we do, you gotta be able to take abuse, have people talk crazy about you.”

Shocking video has emerged from Japanese television showing a violent Will Smith attack Chris Rock as he told jokes and presented an award for Best Documentary at the Oscars.

Via TMZ:

“Will never apologized to Rock, saying, “I want to apologize to The Academy and my fellow nominees. This is a beautiful moment and I’m not crying for winning an award, it’s not about winning an award for me. It’s about being able to shine a light on all of the people.””
