Chris Rock has so far not gone to police after he was hit by Will Smith.

Will Smith stormed the stage and punched Chris Rock in the face after the comedian made a joke about Smith’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, just minutes before Smith was won best actor at the Oscars. Surprisingly, Smith was won the Oscar for best actor shortly afterward, and he later apologized with tears in his eyes (but not to Chris Rock). The event marred a night that saw Coda, a film with a mostly deaf cast, win the best picture, Troy Kotsur become the first deaf male actor to receive an award, and Sir Kenneth Branagh’s semi-autobiographical film Belfast win best original screenplay.

The Magic Mike XXL performer and Red Table Talk host has previously spoken about her alopecia, claiming that it was the cause of her shaved head. “Jada, can’t wait for GI Jane 2,” Rock added, referring to Pinkett Smith’s buzzcut, prompting the actress to roll her eyes. Smith, on the other hand, appeared to slap Rock on stage before returning to his seat and screaming twice, “Keep my wife’s name out of your lips!” As he attempted to resume presenting the best documentary feature category, Rock was stunned and flustered by the incident.
Smith’s acceptance speech for his first-ever Oscar, for his depiction of Richard Williams, the father of tennis legends Venus and Serena Williams, in King Richard, was marred by the incident. As he accepted his award, Smith apologized to the Academy and his fellow nominees, but not to Rock, joking that he “looked like the crazy parent.”
