(TruthandLiberty.com) – It’s been a long time since America cared much about the Academy Awards. On Sunday, March 27, that changed. This year’s host, Chris Rock, made a joke about Will Smith’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, which most people would agree was in poor taste. Smith walked onto the stage and smacked Rock in the face in response to the perceived insult. While the stand-up comedian refused to report the crime to police, California law enforcement doesn’t need Rock’s permission to file charges against the famous actor over his violent act.
On Monday, March 28, Fox News covered the incident, and “The Five” co-host Jesse Watters quipped it was the first time he’d ever seen the media report on black-on-black crime. He added had it been Mel Gibson instead of Will Smith who hit the master of ceremonies, Gibson would be the only guy not allowed out of jail on bond by the far-Left LA district attorney. Watters further stated the lack of any police response to Smith’s assault on Rock on live television explains why the United States has a massive crime problem.

On Monday evening, the Pasadena Star-News reported Smith formally apologized to Rock for his behavior. For his part, comedian Chris Rock is taking it all in stride. On Wednesday evening, March 30, Rock held his new stand-up comedy routine. After the slap resounded worldwide, ticket sales for his routine exploded. More tickets sold overnight on Sunday into Monday than they had the entire previous month.
