On Sunday night, social media was on fire when Will Smith slammed Chris Rock at the Oscars for making a “GI Jane” joke about Jada Pinkett Smith. MMA personalities all discussed the viral moment, including UFC President Dana White, who praised the comedian’s ability to take a shot.
Several fighters also chimed in, bringing hot takes and even quickly created memes.
Hard to surprise me these days but watching Will Smith slap Chris Rock is very surprising! I’m really amazed that this happened. You could see the moment Will started to feel played

Anyone watching the #Oscars? Will Smith is a gangster for that one, Chris Rock was the ultimate pro for the way he carried on

OK, full circle… GI Jane was hot so maybe Will Smith thought Chris Rock was trying to fuck his wife, because she was known to throw pussy everywhere… idk man weird world. It’s time to start not giving a fuck about movie stars again. Just a rare occasion of violence.. hmmm…
