Chris Rock has declined to file a police report after Will Smith seemingly slapped him at the Oscars, during his speech, according to LAPD.
Smith rushed on to the stage after Chris Rock made a comment about Jada Pinkett Smith during his speech and seemingly slapped Rock in the face. Pinkett Smith has recently been open about her struggle with alopecia, a hair loss condition.
According to a statement released by the Los Angeles Police Department:
“LAPD investigative entities are aware of an incident between two individuals during the Academy Awards program. The incident involved one individual slapping another,”
“The individual involved has declined to file a police report. If the involved party desires a police report at a later date, LAPD will be available to complete an investigative report.”
The 57-year-old comedian made a G.I Jane reference about Pinkett Smith to which Will Smith reacted by walking onto the stage and slapping Rock in the face.

I cannot believe that this is real life.
