WILL Smith shocked fans when he slapped Chris Rock at last night’s Oscars awards after making a poorly received joke about Jada Pinkett Smith’s hair loss.
The ex-SNL comedian was there to present an Oscar for Best Documentary when he appeared to go off-script.
While some were quick to defend the King Richard actor however, not everyone agrees with one woman revealing she suffered a very similar incident that left her mortified.
Taking to Mumsnet, she explained how her own husband had punched her ex-partner in the face after her made an ill-advised joke.
However, rather than finding the act chivalrous, the mum said she was left furious by the incident.
In her recently resurfaced post, she wrote: “My DH (darling husband) went out with some mates last night and bumped into my ex.

“Apparently my ex (who is biological dad to DS [darling son] age 3) said something derogatory about me and DH punched him.
“He told me as soon as he came in and I believe they had a scuffle which was broken up by friends. I am not impressed.”
However, while the woman may not have been impressed, fellow Mumsnet users argued that she should be thanking her husband.
Commenting on the thread, one wrote: “To be honest I'm not sure why you are annoyed at DH as all he did was defend your honour which I applaud.

“I get that 'violence isn't the answer' but you can't blame DH for reacting that way if your ex was being derogatory about you.”
“Good for DH”, agreed another, while a third wrote, “I would be very proud of the husband.”
However, there were a few who agreed with the mum.

What happened with Will Smith at the Oscars?
Will Smith shocked Oscars attendees after he made a swing at Chris Rock following a joke about his wife.
"Jada, I love you, G. I. Jane 2, can't wait to see it," Chris tried to joke.
Demi Moore famously shaved her head for her role in the 1997 movie.
Jada, on the contrary, has been struggling with hair loss for years, and last year decided to shave it all off.
Her husband, Will, took offense at the joke and stormed the stage before hitting the presenter with a right hook.
The audio and video feed in the US was cut for several seconds during the shocking incident.
However, international broadcasters aired the entire violent encounter between the two stars.
After the confrontation, a stunned Chris said: "Will Smith just smacked the s**t out of me."
When the video restarted, Will looked furious, as he yelled at the comedian: "Leave my wife’s name out of your f***ing mouth."
Chris's joke was apparently an ad-lib.
"Someone who works for the Oscars told me that Chris Rock was not interrupted by Will Smith at rehearsals yesterday. It was not supposed to happen," a source revealed. "It was real."
