Will Smith’s fight over the Oscars is still resonating at the Grammys a week later

References to Will Smith’s Oscar controversy were still being made by presenters at the 64th Grammy Awards a week later.

Mith took the stage at the Academy Awards in Los Angeles last Sunday and punched presenter Chris Rock after the comedian made a joke about his wife Jada Pinkett Smith and her hair loss.

The incident happened just before Rock announced the winner of Best Documentary, which was awarded to Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson and his production team for Summer Of Soul.

“It’s going to be such a lovely evening. Don’t even think of it as an awards show, this is a concert where we give out awards,” he said.

“We’re going to listen to music, we’re going to dance, we’re going to sing, we’re going to keep people’s names out of our mouths.”
