The boring Academy Awards suddenly got more interesting when Will Smith “slapped” Chris Rock – something that looked more like an assault than a slap. Smith was outraged by an rude joke about his wife and has since apologized for assaulting Rock, who is is not pressing charges. Smith went on to win the Oscar for Best Actor and gave a tearful acceptance/apology speech.
The incident also made editorial cartoons more interesting. Here is a collection of the best Oscar Slap cartoons!
