Tiffany Haddish, a Hollywood actress, supported Will Smith for hitting Chris Rock at the Oscars in 2022.
On Sunday night, the audience was surprised when Will Smith rushed up to Rock and smacked him for making a joke about his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith's, bald head.
Haddish described Smith's action as "the most beautiful thing I've ever seen."
With Shang-Chi and Legend of the Ten Rings star Simu Liu, the 42-year-old actress presented the Best Foreign Feature Film award, which was won by Japan's Drive My Car.
"The first time I saw a black man fight for his wife." That meant a great deal to me.
And while the rest of the world may not approve of how it went down, it was the most beautiful thing I've ever witnessed because it made me feel that there are still men out there that love and care about their spouses, Haddish remarked.
She questioned why Rock, who is both Will's and Jada's "buddy," would do such a thing.
"He didn't even tell her the joke, but she was hurt."
He probably would not have said anything if she hadn't been harmed, but you could tell he was visibly hurt, and they took advantage of it. They took advantage of her, so "I have to do something"... Haddish continued, "He defended his wife."
Pinkett Smith has been afflicted with alopecia, an autoimmune disease that causes hair loss.
