Many of you have seen this video and there are some who think Will Smith did the right thing.
You are wrong!
Please also note that Chris Rock had his hands behind his back, when he received the cowardly sucker slap from Will Smith.
Later, Will Smith received a standing ovation when he received his Oscar, which tells you all you need to know about Oscar Night.
