Will Smith | Chris Rock: This 2016 tweet asked Will Smith to “punch Chris Rock in the face” about Jada Pinkett. Does this explain the bad history between the trio?

The 94th Academy Awards had some truly iconic moments such as Troy Kotsure’s win as Best Supporting Actor and his speech where he made the audience laugh and also moved them to tears, or the inspiring speech by Ariana DeBose as she accepted the Best Supporting Actress Oscar, but it was all overshadowed by a slap in the face.

The Oscars made headlines after Will Smith, who won Best Actor for ‘King Richard,’ hit comedian Chris Rock on live TV for making a joke about his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith .

There’s been a lot of noise regarding the controversy, and also memes that don’t seem to die down, even on Day 2, as the true winners of the show remain unclear.

Recently an old tweet from 2016 resurfaced which could have “manifested” the whole “slapgate”. In an old tweet from the 2016 Oscars, a user asked Smith to “punch Rock in the face.”

Let us give you some background behind this. Comedian Chris Rock hosted the 2016 Oscars, where he roasted Jada for skipping the ceremony in front of the entire audience during one of his onstage moments.

Oscars 2022: Most memorable moments from the 94th Academy Awards

The 2022 Oscars in-person awards show has returned after two years of silence due to the pandemic. Here are some of the most memorable and shocking moments from the 94th Academy Awards.

“What happened this year? What happened ? People have gone crazy, you know…. Jada got mad, you know. Jada is going to boycott these Oscars?!’ Jada boycotting the Oscars is like me boycotting Rihanna’s panties. I wasn’t invited,” Rock joked as the room erupted in laughter.

He then added, “It’s not fair that Will was so good and didn’t get nominated. It’s also not fair that Will got paid $20 million for ‘Wild Wild West’!”

After the ceremony, many fans rejected Rock for his search at the Smiths. While one user specifically asked Smith to punch Rock in the face, adding that the actor had no other choice.

Back in 2022, at the 94th Academy Awards, Rock once again pointed his gun at Jada, this time poking fun at her alopecia disorder, a medical condition that causes baldness.

Here is what happened :

When announcing the nominees, Rock compared Jada’s tight-cut hair to actress Demi Moore’s appearance in the movie “GI Jane,” adding that she could appear in the film’s sequel.

Whereupon, Smith came on stage and punched Rock. “Keep my wife’s name out of your fucking mouth,” Smith shouted as he returned to his seat.

Although the show went on and Smith later apologized to the Academy and the Rock for losing his temper and hitting on the comedian, many can’t help but link the 2016 tweet to the 2022 incident.

Several people have said that the 2016 incident at the Academy Awards could have been the start of a bad romance between the three, which led to Smith vs Rock meeting, on the Oscars platform she -same. End where it started, huh?

However, the way events actually unfolded is a chilling coincidence. Guess what they say about “be careful what you wish for”, it’s pretty much true.
