Billy Crystal brands Will Smith’s Oscars slap ‘assault’ and ‘most disturbing incident’

The Metro says Billy Crystal has criticised Will Smith’s Oscars slap and called it ‘the most disturbing incident’.

The 74-year-old actor has labelled the incident at the 94th Academy Awards – which saw Will strike comedian Chris Rock after he made a joke about his wife Jada Pinkett Smith’s shaven head on the same night he picked up his best actor prize for his role in King Richard – as ‘disturbing’.

He said: ‘It was a most disturbing incident for sure. It was an assault. I’ve had experiences. I hosted the Grammys three times and I’ve been thrown things..’

The City Slickers star – who has hosted the Oscars nine times over the course of his career – explained that when he was at the helm of the ceremony, he always felt that there should be a procedure in place should such an incident arise.
