The 2022 Oscars featured the slap seen around the world.

Will Smith slapping Chris Rock during the award show made its way into the 90 Day Fiance universe, where several stars from the show shared their reactions.

The slap occurred after Chris Rock made a joke about Will Smith’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith’s bald head and how she could play the next G.I Jane.

Initially Will Smith was laughing at the joke, but Jada, who suffers from alopecia, became visibly upset. That’s when Will Smith got up and walked on stage towards Chris Rock, and open hand slapped him before sitting back down and yelling obscenities at him.

Some 90 Day Fiance cast shared their varied and interesting responses to the whole situation on social media.

  1. That was the best thing I heard all year, I guess Chris Rock won’t talk crap about somebody’s wife or ex-wife again now will he!
