Oscars host Wanda Sykes was also unhappy about Will Smith’s Oscar slap. After her co-host Amy Schumer took to Instagram to shame Smith for his “disturbing” actions on Sunday, Sykes sat down with Ellen DeGeneres to punish the actor winner. best lead actor for stealing her night.
“I just asked, ‘Did this really happen? Sykes recalls the moment she found out Smith had hit Chris Rock on stage. “I just feel terrible for my friend Chris. It is sick. It’s completely sick. I feel sick. I’m still a bit hurt by it. “
Even though she wasn’t at the Oscars on Sunday, DeGeneres felt the need to appeal and said she also felt hurt by the whole affair. Unfazed by that one-sided comment, Sykes went on to criticize Smith, saying that the Oscars were wrong to let the actor stay at the ceremony after causing such havoc.
“As for them to let him stay in that room and enjoy the rest of the show and get his award, I was like, how horrible is this?” Sykes said. “It was just a false message. You attack someone, you get escorted out of the building. That’s it. As for them to let him continue, I think that’s gross.”
Sykes even planned his own for Smith’s Best Actor award. Hoping he’d be kicked out of the theater before his supposed win, the host got ready to dance on stage and declare, “Unfortunately, Will can’t be here tonight.”
The comedian went on to tell DeGeneres that she believes she and her co-hosts, Schumer and Regina Hall, deserve an apology from Smith.
“I know he apologized to Chris, but you know, we’re the hosts. This is our home, we invite you in, we are the hosts, we will take care of you tonight, make sure you have a good time,” she said. “No one apologized to us, and we worked really hard to put the show together.”
But who do you know? Yes apologized to her? Chris Rock. Sykes ran into him at a party later and recalled, “As soon as I walked up to him, the first thing he said was, ‘I’m so sorry,’ ‘ Sykes revealed. “I was like, ‘Why are you apologizing?’ He was like, ‘It should have been your night.’ “(Smith has since apologized to Rock about the slap.)
“Chris is a sweet guy,” DeGeneres agreed. Sure, but has he begged forgiveness from Jada Pinkett Smith for the hair loss joke? Perhaps that apology should be given higher priority.
