It is a rare moment indeed when the universe hands down a blessing that benefits all of humanity. On Sunday, March 27, 2022, such a moment occurred.

Oscars host Chris Rock inexplicably stood his ground as the guy who played Muhammed Ali angrily approached the stage, swung his arm back, and finally, delivered an open-handed slap to the comedian’s face.

The Reason For The Assault: Rock made a joke about Will Smith’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith’s hair.

Will Smith’s actions were fully justified and necessary. After all, a “GI Jane” joke is highly inappropriate when the target of your humor proudly boasts of cheating on her husband with half of Hollywood – including her son’s friends.

If you’re going to make a crack about Jada Pinkett Smith, go for the gold, Chris. You should be ashamed of yourself!

Chris Rock’s failure to go for the jugular was an insult to viewers across the globe. We should all be grateful to Will Smith for doing what needed to be done, and we thank him for his service.

Something else worth celebrating came from Will Smith slapping Chris Rock: Amy Schumer was traumatized by the incident.

“Still triggered and traumatized,” Schumer wrote in an Instagram post Wednesday morning. “I love my friend @chrisrock and believe he handled it like a pro. Stayed up there and gave an Oscar to his friend @questlove and the whole thing was so disturbing. So much pain in @willsmith anyway I’m still in shock and stunned and sad. I’m proud of myself and my cohosts. But yeah. Waiting for this sickening feeling to go away from what we all witnessed,” she said.

Despite the darkness of our current times, good things still happen in this world. Thank you, Will Smith. We all owe you a debt of gratitude.
