LOS ANGELES (AP) — Will Smith marched on stage and smacked presenter Chris Rock during Sunday night’s Oscars after Rock made a joke about the appearance of Smith’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith.

Smith was awarded best actor for his role in “King Richard” moments later and apologized to the academy during his speech.

Pinkett Smith has often discussed the challenges of hair loss on Instagram and other social media platforms.
