Steve Harvey discusses Will Smith’s Oscar snub. “If I were Chris Rock, I’d have retaliated,” Steve Harvey says.
Will Smith received an Oscar smack for overacting, according to Steve Harvey.
Steve Harvey, a well-known American television host, has stated that if he (Steve) had been the one who smacked Will Smith on stage, he would not have been spared.
After two months, Steve Harvey has finally expressed his thoughts on Chris Rock’s resounding slap from Will Smith at the 2022 Academy Awards, a move that stunned the entire globe.
Harvey added that if he had been in Chris Rock’s place, his reaction to a punk move would have been different.
Steve Harvey made these remarks at an event at Georgia State University, where he also stated that he no longer respects Will.
Although he is a Christian, the Family Feud presenter claims that his faith would not have stopped him from beating anyone who stepped on his toes.
“There’s no way you’re slapping me, then buttoning your jacket and walking off the stage.” I’m a Christian, yet I’m not very mature. I don’t have a strong Christian faith. I’m a two on a scale of one to ten. I can work on that level of Christianity.
T.D. Jakes will turn the other cheek if you slap him. You’re slapping me? Jada [Will’s wife] would have to shift out of the way if you sat back in your seat. In a Fox television report, he said, “That’s the kind of Christian I am.”
Meanwhile, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has banned Will Smith from attending the Oscars for the next ten years.
After the actor slapped Chris Rock at the 2022 Academy Awards, this was done as a disciplinary measure.
