The bizarre moments following Will Smith slapping Chris Rock in the face at the Oscars

Behind the scenes footage has surfaced from the moments following Will Smith spectacularly slapping Chris Rock across the face on stage at the Oscars. 

The A-lister was shown being comforted by fellow Hollywood icons Tyler Perry and Denzel Washington after the confrontation, provoked by Rock mocking Jada Pinkett Smith’s hair

The trio were shown chatting next to the stage, with Perry and Washington placing a hand on Smith’s back and Smith at one point nodding in agreement.

Perry split from the group first and joined another duo, while Washington walked with an arm around Smith before taking his seat.

Actor Bradley Cooper was then shown embracing Smith, before appearing to deliver some words of encouragement while tapping him lightly on the chest. 

The pair then shared a tight hug, tapping each other on the back several times, and pulled away briefly for a short discussion, before hugging again. 

After splitting, Smith pulled a white cloth from his pocket and used it to dab both of his eyes.

As he took his seat, a woman understood to be his publicist crouched next to his chair, but was swiftly cut off by the announcer’s request for the front area be cleared.
