Will Smith Dances To Gettin' Jiggy With It With His Oscar In Hand After Chris Rock Incident

Will Smith was spotted dancing to Gettin' Jiggy With It with his Oscar in hand after that Chris Rock incident.

The 2022 Oscars ceremony took an unexpectedly dramatic turn when the actor-turned-film-producer slapped the comedian for making a joke about his wife Jada Pinkett Smith.

Well, it appeared the ordeal didn't get the better of Smith after the fact, as he was caught throwing shapes to the sound of his own song at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party.

In the video captured by Variety's executive editor, Ramin Setoodeh, The King Richard star garnered a fair-sized crowd at the event as he sang and danced along to his 90s track, encouraging his onlookers to do the same.


Check out the fun clip here:

When asked by Variety how he was getting on after the incident, Smith said: "It's all about love".

Back at the Oscars ceremony, Smith's wife was sitting in the audience when Rock made a quip about her shaven head.


"Jada, I love you - G.I. Jane 2, can't wait to see it!" Rock told her, as a nod to Demi Moore's 1997 film G.I. Jane, which saw lead actor Demi Moore shave her head for the role.

Initially, her husband was laughing along, but she wasn't - at one point rolling her eyes as Rock tried to defend himself, saying: "That was a nice one!"

Moments later, Smith could be seen striding up on stage and slapping a stunned Rock before heading back to his seat.

Smith's wife has previously spoken about her 'struggle' with alopecia, saying that while she wants to 'be friends' with her hair loss, it hasn't been an easy ride.


During a 2018 episode of Red Table Talk, she recalled how scared she felt when she first started losing her hair.

"It was terrifying when it first started," Pinkett Smith said.

"I was in the shower one day and had just handfuls of hair in my hands and I was just like, oh my god, am I going bald?"
