Wanda Sykes was one of the many hosts of the 2022 Academy Awards and was a witness to the infamous slapping incident involving Will Smith and Oscars host Chris Rock. Since then, Sykes has commented on the slap, saying she’s still processing the situation.
This past Thursday, Sykes was candid about the incident during a comedy tour stop in Orlando, Florida, at the Dr. Phillips Center for Performing Arts. “I’m still traumatized. I can’t talk about it. I get emotional,” said Sykes. She continued saying, “I couldn’t believe he was still sitting there, like an a**hole. Shouldn’t you be sitting there with a lawyer or LAPD, motherf**ker?” Sykes concluded by saying, “I hope he gets his s**t together. Until then, f**k him.” Stay tuned for more updates.
