Nah, I think it was real. Especially based on Will's tearful reaction to winning the award. The guy was just in an emotional state night, probably prepped to receive digs about his wife cheating on him. That joke. Didn't come his way but another one did and he just lost it.imo i think it's fake. chris rock braced for it and will smith put no power into that slap.
i would of thought a real slap from will smith would of put chris on the floor.
..i guess were find out eventually.
I don't see how doing this would be a publicity stunt either men would be guaranteed to benefit from.
