Smith shocked both those in attendance and viewers at home watching the 2022 event when he climbed on stage and slapped Rock following a joke related to Pinkett Smith's alopecia.

The incident was followed immediately by confusion, with many criticizing the decision to allow Smith to stay in the venue and even collect his Oscar for Best Actor soon after.

Ultimately, Smith was banned from the Academy Awards for the next ten years, which means he won't be allowed to present the Oscar for Best Actress in 2023, as is tradition.

Many prominent Hollywood figures have reacted to the incident publically, including Michael Bay, Zoë Kravitz, and Jim Carrey.

However, much of the interest lies in how the three central figures, Pinkett Smith, Smith, and Rock, have responded in the aftermath.

Meanwhile, Rock hasn't said very much about what happened but has indicated he'll talk more about it in the future.

Still, it's worth remembering that the incident is still quite fresh. There have been so many updates and responses to it that it's easy to forget the Oscars ceremony only took place in late March.

Many things about the slap remain a mystery, including how it will affect Smith's career in the long term and how exactly Rock is feeling about the actor and Hollywood's response to the moment.
