Jim Carrey Is Appalled By Hollywood’s Response To The Oscars Scandal, Saying “I Would Sue Will Smith For 200 Million Dollars”

The 94th Academy Awards event has generated an abundance of comments and discussions on the internet. When Chris Rock made a joke about Jada Pinkett Smith’s shorn head, Will Smith stormed the stage and smacked the comic.

Jim Carrey had something to say about these activities on Monday during an appearance with Gayle King for CBS Mornings, and he did not hold back. When it was revealed that Smith had won best actor for his role in King Richard, the actor criticized the Oscars crowd for giving Smith a standing ovation. Just a few minutes after the distressing event, Smith received the prize.

Carrey said, “I felt sickened. “The standing ovation made me feel sick. I had the impression that Hollywood was largely spineless, and this was a very obvious sign that we were no longer in the cool crowd. The response of the crowd to Smith’s victory severely grieved him, and he observed that his behavior dominated the entire evening. For a complete view of the interview, scroll down below.

In response to his conduct, Jim Carrey criticized Hollywood for applauding Smith after he received the best actor award.

Rock said the now-famous joke while presenting the prize for the best original documentary. He pointed to Pinkett Smith in the crowd and exclaimed, “Jada, I love you. I can’t wait to see you, G.I. Jane 2.

In case you were wondering, Demi Moore had her head shorn for the 1997 film G.I. Jane. The only allusion in Rock’s joke was to Pinkett Smith’s hairdo. She rolled her eyes at his statements and her husband reacted angrily. You see, the actress disclosed in 2018 that she has alopecia, an autoimmune disorder that results in hair loss. Since then, she has been open about her difficulties.

Attendees rose to their feet when Will Smith received the prize just moments after the event. Smith remarked in his award speech that the Richard Williams he depicted in King Richard was “a strong defender of his family.”

I’ve been asked to love people, to defend people, and to be a river to my people throughout my life. I am aware that in order to perform what we do, one must be able to put up with insults and hear outrageous rumors about oneself. In this line of work, you have to be able to put up with people treating you badly while yet smiling and acting as though nothing is wrong.

Smith added with tears in his eyes, “I want to apologize to the Academy, I want to apologize to all my fellow candidates.” “Life imitates art. I resemble the eccentric father, as they claimed. However, love will drive you insane.

Smith apologized to Rock in a lengthy Instagram post after his address, despite skipping over the comedian’s name. Smith said that violence is poisonous and destructive in all of its forms. “I feel humiliated because my behavior did not reflect the kind of man I aspire to be. Violence has no place in a society that values kindness and love.

Pinkett Smith also posted on social media, but she chose to share a phrase instead of her opinions on the matter: “This is the season for healing and I’m here for it.”

Following the incident, Smith later expressed regret in a statement on Instagram.

In reference to Smith’s character in Ali, the comedian reportedly made the following joke backstage after the incident: “That’s the one time you get hit by Muhammad Ali and it doesn’t leave a scratch.” Chris Rock has “declined to file a police report,” according to the Los Angeles Police Department, who also confirmed this to Variety.

Investigative units of the LAPD are aware of a collision involving two people during the Academy Awards ceremony. In the encounter, one person slapped another. The involved party has declined to call the police. The LAPD will be available to finish an investigative report at a later time if the affected party requests one, according to a full statement from the LAPD.

Additionally, the Academy released a statement saying, “The Academy condemns Mr. Smith’s actions at last night’s show. We have formally begun an investigation into the occurrence, and we will consider additional steps and penalties in accordance with our bylaws, standards of conduct, and California law.

According to a source in the industry, “Behind the scenes, there were many people, various voices, and divided viewpoints weighing in on what had just occurred and what was the best and quickest course of action. Additionally, they were worrying about Chris Rock.

Will’s removal was obviously a topic that was carefully addressed, the source continued. “You can’t prepare for something like this and make a split-second choice that needs everyone’s support and that would have ramifications in any iteration,” the speaker said.

Many others found Carrey’s words to be meaningful; here are some of their comments:
