    Will Smith punches Chris Rock

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-60897004

    Everyone joking about this.

    Shouldn't he be arrested?

    Yes please arrest Chris Rock for being offensive.


    seriously-

    Mr Rock has declined to press charges, in the US I understand that makes the offence invisible.

    I want to see the hand of history on his collar.

      I heard it was a slap.

      I think there were better ways Will Smith could have expressed his dismay at the joke made at his wife's expense but I can also understand how shock and anger lead to rash behaviour. You don't expect to go to an awards ceremony and have someone make fun of your partner's medical condition. It was a cheap, lazy joke and it rightly backfired.

        Who hasn't wanted to do that to Chris Rock? Will looked properly angry, but to his credit Chris was lightning quick to roll with it and carry on.
        And credit for not falling to the ground like a footballer and pressing charges for PTSD.

        Not sure why that's relevant. Some special forces train soldiers to slap in unarmed combat rather than punch. Though maybe Will thought with all his boxing skills (!) his punches might be considered lethal weapons, although it looked a bit like a shoulder-height tennis forehand to me.

          As usual, celebrity stuff goes over me head. Chris Rock, never 'eard of 'im. Watch the Oscars? Not unless I was bedbound.

            The clip's pretty good though. You don't get Will Smith showing believable emotion on screen very often.

              You're more likely to seriously damage your hand with a punch.

              With regards to Will Smith, I wonder if he still slaps Jada about like that or if he's stopped since the therapy.

                Exactly.

                  If anyone had made a joke about my wife's illness, especially so publicly, I would have punched their lights out. So whilst I'm not generally going to condone violence, I would never let anyone take a cheap shot at my wife either ... and that goes too even though she's no longer here.
