Big slap at OSCARS

    After a bald joke about Will Smith's wife Jada goes badly, Smith got up, went up on the stage and slapped Chris Rock hard across the face.

   He told Rock not to use his wife in his jokes. She has a disease that causes her to lose her hair. A few minutes later, Smith won the Oscar for best actor. Rock has not pressed charges.
