Mike Tyson Weighs In On Will Smith Slapping Chris Rock At The Oscars

Nearly three months after Will Smith walked onto the stage at the Academy Awards to slap Chris Rock for making a joke about his wife, everybody (and Chris’ mama) has an opinion on “The Slap.” Maybe it’s because sympathies fall all over the spectrum about who was right and who was wrong and what should have happened and what it means going forward, but there’s little doubt it’s going to go down as one of the most controversial and most talked-about moments in Oscars history, The latest person to comment on “The Slap” is Mike Tyson — somebody who knows a thing or two about hitting people, as well as finding himself in the middle of controversy.

Mike Tyson is one of the most dominant boxers of all time but has become known just as much for his eccentric lifestyle — a man who shared a bed with his tigers and who admits to tripping on toad venom, Even in the ring he made himself a pop culture topic after being disqualified from a 1997 boxing match with Evander Holyfield after he bit off a chunk of his opponent’s ear. When asked on Jimmy Kimmel Live if he had an opinion about Will Smith slapping Chris Rock, Tyson said he thought it was “pretty interesting”:

I don’t know, if he thought it was necessary to do it. If he’s not shocked, I’m not shocked.
