After Chris Rock delivered a joke about Will Smith’s wife Jada Pinkett Smith, starring in the next G. I. Jane movie, Will Smith stood up for his wife by walking on stage and delivering a K.O. punch. Chris Rock, while shocked like everyone else who didn’t see it coming, held his composure and managed to finish the awards segment for the Best Documentary Feature. Jada Smith suffers from alopecia, a condition which causes hair loss. Check out the jaw-dropping moment here.
