1. You left out "I don't care" as an option...

9. But you have enough time to stop by and tell everyone you don't care...

Some people are able to process multiple things at a time, and some enjoy an evening that isn't wall to wall news.
Just FYI.

2. Off subject, has Sean Penn "smelted" his statues yet?

Curious.

5. LOL



The only thing truly missing from this debacle is Trump tweeting about it. Twitter needs to give him 24 hour unbans whenever celebrity stuff happens

12. I'm surprised Bette Midler hasn't weighed in.

But probably wise to stay out of it lol.

3. Not talking about Ukraine, Zelensky or Sean Penn are we

Oscar's wanted nothing to do with that controversy.

(I did not watch or never watch the Oscar's)

4. My initial thought was yes...

but seeing the unedited version, I don't think the Academy would have allowed the f-bombing. So I'm thinking that if it was staged, it would have been just between Rock and Smith.

6. I don't think so, but have seen some decent evidence that it was.

His language after the incident leads me to think it wasn't. He has also done the punk ass slapping method before on a reporter that kissed him, so that may just be how he does it.

7. No! Will Smith has been struggling with his mental health for several years!

10. Good lord, why would anyone think this would be staged?

Chris Rock didn't benefit. Will Smith didn't benefit. His wife didn't benefit. The Oscars didn't benefit. It was a shit-show. Is everything a conspiracy now? Jesus Christ.

You expect this kind of conspiracy mindset among the rubes but, as you said, jeezus.

14. I'm usually

on the lookout for BS. But in this case based on Chris Rocks complete surprise and unprepared response to the whole thing, no. I don't believe it was planned at all.
Everyone in Hollywood should know the gig. There are going to be jokes at your expense. I felt bad for Chris Rock, he was as shocked as everyone else and handled it pretty well considering. I do consider the joke to have been in poor taste though. I wouldn't have said that knowing the situation. And yes, if you are going to make off color jokes, you need to know what you are dealing with first.

Uncle Phil never smacked the shit out of Will for all the mean fat jokes he made about him.
