    The Oscars 2022 managed to shock the present audience and viewers all across the globe after actor Will Smith punched comedian and host Chris Rock . This happened after the latter cracked a joke on Smith’s wife Jada Pinkett Smith which Will thought was insensitive pertaining to her battle with alopecia. The incident has managed to divide much of the netizens and now fashion designer Masaba Gupta and actress Kangana Ranaut have shared their views on the same.

    Talking about Kangana Ranaut, the actress completely sided with Will Smith on the controversy and took a direct dig at Chris Rock. The Tanu Weds Manu Returns actress stated, “If some idiot makes a joke on my mom or sister’s illness, then I would slap him like @willsmith did. Badass move, hope he comes to my lock upp.” The producer of Lock Upp Ekta Kapoor also shared Kangana’s post jokingly stating how contestants Payal Rohatgi and Azma Fallah are waiting for Smith. Take a look at Kangana’s post.

    On the other hand, designer Masaba Gupta had a rather neutral approach to the fiasco on her Instagram stories wherein she hoped that no one would pass harsh judgments on either Will Smith or Chris Rock as people don’t know their stories. She stated, “I’ve been looking at the Will Smith/ Chris Rock memes all day and all I can think of is that – If I were ever caught in a very public moment. where I acted out of grief, rage, vulnerability and was completely incapable of placing my imagery second to my emotions and/or if I were on a very public platform saying something that I deemed witty or effective or maybe I was just doing my job in that setting – I hope and I pray that the world will be more forgiving & allow that person to correct themselves & move on without such harsh judgment…then I think that will be the greatest moment for many decades to come.”

    She furthermore went on to add, “Just if a generation of social media enthusiasts (like myself) decided that no one is right & no one is wrong and we don’t actually know these people and their stories and we in the comfort of our homes & our phones are going to allow people to be their best selves instead of crucify them.”
