The 2022 Oscars took an unexpected turn that’s leaving viewers shook, to say the least.
Actor Will Smith stormed across the stage and took a swing at comedian-host Chris Rock for making an alopecia joke about his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith. The actress suffers from alopecia, a medical condition that causes hair loss.

Not long before Smith, “smacked the sh*t” out of Rock (Rock’s own words), BTS‘s RM appeared on screen to give Smith a shout-out. “Shout-out to Will Smith,” he said, not knowing what the future would hold!
