Will Smith caused a major controversy when he punched Chris Rock at the 2022 Oscars after the comedian joked about his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith.
Despite all the backlash he received after the incident, Smith is now joking about it in a new video he shared to TikTok.
In the video, he appeared to be listening to another TikTok creator explain “an absolutely unhinged exercise.”
Listening thoughtfully, the other person said, “Did you know you can pick any object, look at it, and ask it what it thinks of you?”

As she gave examples of the kinds of objects you could use for this exercise, Smith looked off to the side, out of the camera’s view.

He then reached over and pulled out his Oscar, giving the camera an exaggeratedly emotional look before turning back to the statue. He ended the video by opening his mouth, possibly to ask the award what it thinks of him.
The video appeared to be a joke, and that’s how many of his followers took it.
“He has the least sense of humor,” one person wrote along with three laughing emojis.
“If you can’t laugh at yourself lol love it,” another person said.
Others did not appreciate Smith making light of the incident. One of his followers suggested that the statue would tell him, “You don’t deserve me.”
While presenting an award at the 2022 Academy Awards ceremony, Rock made a joke aimed at Pinkett Smith, referring to her bald head. The actress and Smith’s wife of over 25 years suffers from alopecia, a medical condition that causes hair loss.
She didn’t seem pleased with the remark, and seconds later Smith stood up, climbed the steps to the stage and punched Rock, who appeared stunned.

When he was left seated, Smith yelled at Rock, “Keep my wife’s name out of your mouth!”
Smith got to attend the event, and even won Best Actor later that night. During his speech, he apologized to the Academy and his fellow nominees and joked that he hoped they would let him return in the future.

The Academy later announced that Smith would be banned from the ceremony for the next 10 years.
