28 Mar - Will Smith seemed to be having a really interesting night at the Oscars.

Twitter is currently going crazy, sharing an uncensored exchange between Will Smith and Chris Rock that was cut from the US broadcast but aired internationally, in which the comedian was punched by the actor after making a joke about Smith's wife Jada Pinkett being in "G.I. Jane" because of her shaved head (Jada previously opened up about her struggles with alopecia).

"Will Smith just smack the shit out of me," said Rock after the actor punched him square in the face, while audiences laughed.

"Keep my wife's name out of your [expletive] mouth!" Smith could be heard shouting after returning to his seat, receiving a big response from the audiences who realised that it was not a laughing matter.

"Wow, dude. Yeah, it was a GI Jane joke," Chris defended himself.

"Keep my wife's name out of your [expletive] mouth!" the actor repeated.

"I'm going to," Chris Rock responded, before looking into the camera and said that it was going to be the greatest night in the history of television.

It was all that netizens are talking about right now, even after Smith was announced as Best Actor for his performance in "King Richard", besting contenders like Javier Bardem and Denzel Washington.

In his speech, the actor apologised and expressed, "Love will make you do crazy things."
