Ellin made it clear he didn’t think Chris Rock did anything wrong, adding, ‘Chris Rock just did his job, whether you liked his joke or not.’

He also admitted that he first thought it was ‘fake,’ adding, ‘I’m watching this thing, I don’t know what the hell is happening, the sound goes off and I think there’s something very strange happening.

The writer-director added he’s, ‘trying to be careful in 2022, because mental health is a real thing,’ adding that Smith, ‘needs help.’

‘If you’re that out of control at the Oscars on the biggest night of your career, there’s something severely wrong,’ Ellin added.

He also admitted that he didn’t know Jada Pinkett Smith suffered from alopecia, and he believes that Chris Rock didn’t know about it either.

‘Chris Rock is one of the greatest comedians of the past 100 years and this show is the Oscars that is celebrating artistic expression… and you basically have Will Smith trying to cancel him live,’ Ellin said.

He added that Smith is 6’3″ and he has fight training for his role in Ali and, ‘he’s smacking little 60-year-old Chris Rock,’ though Rock’s actual age is 57.

Ellin also mentioned that Rock, ‘didn’t move, by the way,’ adding he was, ‘a little shocked that Will Smith didn’t put him a little further back.’

He also called out The Academy, stating he found it, ‘horrifying’ that they ‘sat there’ and did nothing, and then minutes later, ‘gave him a standing ovation… the whole thing is horrifying to me.’

When asked why Smith, ‘got the pass he did,’ Ellin mentioned it was, ‘a foregone conclusion that he was winning the Academy Award,’ for his performance in King Richard, which he had already won the Golden Globe, Screen Actors Guild, BAFTA and other awards for.

‘I’m not condoning any behavior, but I think they were so stunned by what happened, nobody knew what the hell to do,’ Ellin said.

He added that if someone less famous had slapped somebody on live television like, ‘a cinematographer or a makeup artist, they would have arrested them immediately or taken them out of there.’

Just minutes after the slap, Smith did in fact win Best Actor for King Richard, as he struggled through an awkward acceptance speech.

‘I think his speech was even worse. The speech was worse than the slap, this gaslighting bulls**t about, “I’m a protector of people and a lover of people.” Chris Rock was standing with his hands behind his back, and a guy twice his size slaps him across the face at the Oscars,’ Ellin added.

The slap happened just before Rock presented the award for Best Documentary, which Questlove won for his critically-acclaimed film Summer of Soul, with Ellin mentioning it was ‘tragic’ that his amazing speech will largely be forgotten.

‘Questlove made this amazing speech about a movie that is so much more important than King Richard. That movie, Summer of Soul, is a really important documentary and Questlove gave a great speech that no one was listening to,’ Ellin said.

He also mentioned CODA star Troy Kotsur, who became just the second deaf actor to win an Oscar, adding, ‘nobody’s thinking about that.’

‘I think it’s really said and it’s a classic narcissist who made the entire event about himself rather than anyone else,’ Ellin concluded.
