Zoe Kravitz has denounced the Oscars as an event “where it seems we’re now yelling obscenities and attacking people on stage” following the altercation between Will Smith and Chris Rock.
The Batman star twice alluded to the incident where best actor winner Smith took the stage to smack Chris Rock after the comedian made a joke about his wife but didn’t mention either by name.
The actress shared two pictures of her outfits for the 94th Academy Awards show and Vanity Fair afterparty on social media.
First, she wrote, “Here’s a picture of my dress on the show where we seem to be attacking people on stage now.”
In the second, she added, “And here’s a picture of my dress at the party after the awards show — where we’re apparently now yelling obscenities and attacking people on stage.”
Kravitz is among many Hollywood stars to condemn Smith’s actions after the incident, with Jim Carrey saying he was “disgusted” by what happened.
Carrey told US outlet CBS the Oscars audience was “spineless” for applauding the actor after his win, as the comedian suggested the King Richard star should have been arrested for the assault.
Smith issued a lengthy apology on social media Monday, and his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, to whom Rock’s joke was directed, also urged “healing.”
