After Pinkett-Smith briefly closed her eyes in annoyance, Smith rose from her seat, walked onto the stage, and delivered the punch to Rock.

“Keep my wife’s name out of your fucking mouth,” was what Smith warned Rock before the astonished gaze of those present.

In a post on Instagram this Monday, the actor apologized to the Hollywood Academy and the comedian for the events minutes before winning the best actor award.

“My behavior at the Oscars last night was unacceptable and inexcusable,” begins the actor’s message, who described violence in all its forms as “poisonous” and “destructive.”

“I would like to publicly apologize to you, Chris. I was out of line and I was wrong,” he added.
