The Oscars Were Totally Normal & Nothing Exciting Happened...

...unless you count Will Smith slapping Chris Rock in the face in front of God and everybody. 

Chris Rock made an insensitive joke about Jada Pinkett Smith's shaved head, a side effect of her struggle with alopecia. The crowd's reaction was mixed with Jada herself rolling her eyes. Will Smith marched on stage open hand slapping the comedian-turned-host. Witnesses heard the slap from audience seats. 

End of the party, right? Wrong. Will Smith returned to the stage 40 minutes later to accept an award for best actor. Smith apologized to the academy and fellow nominees but made no mention of Rock. 

Chris Rock is not pressing charges.
