The comedian was joking with Oscar attendees when he made a joking comment about Jada Pinkett Smith’s shaved head that apparently upset the pair and prompted Smith to not only walk onstage and slap Rock in the face, but yell “keep the my wife’s name out of your fucking mouth.” Pinkett Smith keeps her head shaved because she faces a condition that causes alopecia, according to what the couple announced some time ago.
