I’m here to share my own opinion on why I believe the events surrounding the very real slap between Will Smith and Chris Rock at the 2022 Oscars were actually a staged prank.
Why would Will do it? The Academy — a cabal of Hollywood elite — used him, Chris, and Jada like pawns to perform a stunt designed to improve the Oscars broadcast’s sagging ratings and disappointing crowd size.
Note from Marshall: I recorded this video in OBS, without editing afterwards, so forgive the rawness of it. I just wanted to get it out there as quickly as possible!
