Chris Rock Won’t Press Charges Against Will Smith for Oscars Slap, LAPD Says

Apple TV film CODA won the coveted award for best picture at the Oscars on Sunday, but that was far from the most talked-about happening of the night. In a bewildering moment, Will Smith walked on stage and slapped comedian Chris Rockfollowing a joke Rock made at the expense of Smith’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith.

Smith has been criticized heavily on social media for the action, with many arguing he should be charged for assault. According to the LAPD, however, Rock has declined to press charges.
