Shannon Sharpe was not a big fan of Will Smith’s actions on Sunday night.
During the Oscars, Smith infamously slapped Chris Rock for mocking Jada Pinkett-Smith’s bald hairdo caused by her alopecia condition.
Chris Rock made a joke about Jada Pinkett-Smith being in "G.I. Jane" because of her bald head. She's spoken openly about having a hair loss condition. Will Smith ran on stage, slapped Rock, then screamed twice at the top of his lungs "KEEP MY WIFE'S NAME OUT OF YOUR F-NG MOUTH."

Sharpe reacted to the slap by saying that he would have “whooped Will Smith’s ass” on live TV if Smith had slapped him.
I would’ve came up out that tux. But I’m so disappointed because it’s US against US.
And then he’s going to apologize to the Academy. F the Academy, he need to apologize to Chris Rock. pic.twitter.com/2e2KJx1brf

“I would’ve came up out that tux, I would have whooped Will Smith’s ass. He would have had to whoop me or, or I would have had to whoop him, and every time I see him, it’s on sight.”
For what it’s worth, Smith has apologized to Chris Rock over the slap in a social media post on Monday.
“Jokes at my expense are a part of the job, but a joke about Jada’s medical condition was too much for me to bear, and I reacted emotionally” “I would like to publicly apologize to you, Chris. I was out of line, and I was wrong. I am embarrassed, and my actions were not indicative of the man I want to be. There is no place for violence in a world of love and kindness.”
“I deeply regret that my behavior has stained what has been an otherwise gorgeous journey for all of us,” he wrote. “I am a work in progress.”
