Mel Gibson had quite a hard time while addressing the most controversial moment in one of his interviews regarding Will Smith’s Oscar Slap. The Academy Awards of 2022 gained quite a lot of attention for Will Smith’s thundering slap unleashed on the comedian Chris Rocks. The comedian’s efforts to play around with Jada Smith’s hair loss condition caused due to Alopecia didn’t please the Men In Black star. The follow-up reply to his joke was a slap, whose sound could be heard across the globe. Mel Gibson carefully avoided the question by preventing himself from the controversy.

Mel Gibson’s Direct Encounter with Will Smith’s Slap

Much like the majority of Hollywood stars, Gibson too chose to remain silent on the matter. Maintaining silence is way more important for Gibson who is trying to rebuild his public image. The Forever Young star appeared on Fox News’s Jesse Watters Primetime to promote his movie, Father Stu. Fox News anchor Jesse Watters, directly asked the question putting the 67-year-old star in an awkward situation.

“You understand it probably better than a lot of people, with your career. And I was wondering if, you know, you had been the one that jumped up out of his seat and slapped Chris Rock, if you would have been treated the same way, Mel?”
