A new angle of the viral moment Will Smith slapped Chris Rock at the Oscars has surfaced, and many people believe it shows Jada Pinkett Smith laughing at the incident.

Various outlets have shared the footage, including actor and comedian Michael Rapaport, which shows Will walking back to his seat next to Jada after slapping Chris. When Chris says, “Will Smith just slapped the sh*t outta me,” Jada appears to lean forward in her seat, laughing. The crowd then becomes quiet when they realize the incident was not part of the show, as Will told Chris, “Keep my wife’s name out of your f**king mouth!”
Will has since apologized to Chris over the slap, and Chris briefly addressed the incident during his stand-up show on Wednesday (March 30) night. Chris told the crowd that he would address the incident in the future, but he wanted to do the set that he had prepared prior to the Oscars.
