Will Smith and Chris Rock: Where Hollywood Stands After Oscars Slap
Tiffany Haddish backed Smith, telling People at the Governor’s Ball after-party that she “saw a Black man stand up for his wife” in the televised confrontation.
“That meant so much to me,” she said. “As a woman, who has been unprotected, for someone to say, ‘Keep my wife’s name out your mouth, leave my wife alone,’ that’s what your husband is supposed to do, right? Protect you.”
As for Rock, he seemed to get support after the Oscars when he was photographed sharing a laugh with Robert DeNiro and Woody Harrelson at Gucci’s 14th annual “The Party,” which celebrated the Academy Awards at the home of talent manager Guy Oseary.
As the night went on, everyone from Nicki Minaj to Kathy Griffin weighed in on the matter, regardless of whether or not they attended the show. Discussions even continued on Monday, when celebs including Nikki Glaser and Judd Apatow spoke out with their takes.
