Wanda Sykes 'still traumatised' by Will Smith's Oscars slap

Wanda Sykes is still reeling from Will Smith's behaviour at the 2022 Academy Awards. During the ceremony on 27 March, the King Richard actor walked onto the stage and slapped comedian Chris Rock after he compared his wife Jada Pinkett Smith - who has the medical condition alopecia - to G.I. Jane. Sykes co-hosted the event with Regina Hall and Amy Schumer and during her comedy set at the Dr. Phillips Center last week, she revealed that it will take her a long time to get over the incident.
