Summer of Soul producer Joseph Patel has slammed Chris Rock for a joke he made while awarding the film an Oscar.

However, shortly before the film was named a winner by Questlove, the comedian was slammed by Will Smith for making a joke about Jada Pinkett Smith’s shaved head. Pinkett Smith has been open about her alopecia diagnosis in the past.

Joseph Patel called Smith “selfish” and said his act “deprived the category of its moment” and was “a loud, enthusiastic cheer for an acclaimed film.”

Patel wrote on Twitter: “We were shocked when we walked on stage, not because of the win but because we too were still trying to understand what was happening.”

While yelling, Patel Smith also expressed anger at Rock for claiming the film was made by “Questlove…and four white men.”

“What I didn’t hear at that moment walking up to the stage but what I was told afterwards is what Chris Rock said when he read our name from the winning card,” he tweeted, adding, ” WHAT THE ACTUAL F***??? ???

Patel said that “the reason that pisses me off so much is because I was so proud to be one of a handful of South Asians to ever win an Oscar in the awards history.”

He added that he was “the third South Asian to win that night,” following Riz Aghmed and Aneil Karia’s win for Best Live-Action Short for The Long Goodbye.

“This has never happened before! And it’s meaningful! It’s history!” Patel wrote.

Suggesting Rock ruined the moment for his family and friends, Patel said: “I returned home to New York last night and saw the ceremony on my DVR and didn’t have the nerve to watch it. I probably never will. Thank you Chris – you absolute fucking dick.”

He also said Rock made the same joke at an event the night before.

The Independent has reached out to Rock for comment.

Smith’s swipe at Rock on stage has become the night’s most talked-about moment as he stole the thunder from Coda’s Best Picture win. Elsewhere, Dune won six awards.

Though a source close to Rock claimed he “had no idea” Pinkett Smith had alopecia, the comedian is yet to comment on whether or not he did. Instead, during his first stand-up show since Wednesday’s incident, he said he was “still processing” what happened.

Smith, who faces disciplinary action from the Academy, has apologized for his actions. He was awarded Best Actor at the ceremony for his role in King Richard and accepted his award with a tearful speech.
