Comedian Wanda Sykes recently responded to the infamous Academy Awards ceremony involving actor Will Smith and Chris Rock

Speaking at the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, Sykes said, "I'm still traumatized... I can't talk about it. I get emotional."

She then continued, "I couldn't believe he was still sitting there, like an assh ... Shouldn't you be sitting there with a lawyer or LAPD, motherf-----?"

Smith became the subject of backlash after the Oscars. The incident was seemingly brought on by Rock's joke aimed at Jada Pinkett-Smith, who had shaved her head as a way to deal with alopecia.

The comedian stated, "G.I. Jane 2, can’t wait to see it." The joke prompted Will Smith to slap Rock and yell, "Keep my wife's name out of your fucking mouth."

Both the actor and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences came under heavy criticism, with many arguing the Academy should have acted to remove Smith.

He wrote, "Jokes at [his] expense are part of the job, but a joke about [Jada Pinkett Smith's] medical condition was too much for me to bear and I reacted emotionally...

I was out of line and I was wrong. I am embarrassed and my actions were not indicative of the man I want to be."
