Former Academy Awards host Billy Crystal minced no words when talking about the slap heard ’round the world.

Appearing on Bob Costas’s Back on the Record on HBO Max, Crystal called the infamous Smith-Chris Rock confrontation a “most disturbing incident, for sure. It was an assault. I’ve had experiences. I hosted the Grammys three times and I’ve been thrown things.”

He continued, “In [Oscars] pre-production, the amazing Gil Cates, we would go through – he was the producer for six of the nine that I did – we would go through the rundown and I’d say, ‘Maybe I should be there because something might happen there. If that person wins, I should follow that.'”

What Chris Rock Said Backstage After the Will Smith Slap, According to Reports

  What Chris Rock Said Backstage After the Will Smith Slap, According to Reports Chris Rock offered a joking observation backstage at the Academy Awards after he was slapped by Will Smith during the live broadcast.

Crystal maintained that having a host brings an element of control to an event.

“I sort of set myself up to host the show, really host the show, so you can tie it together. So, whenever I see shows that it’s a no-host show, yeah, it went faster, but there’s nobody there to capitalize on anything and give the audience the feeling of there’s somebody in charge.”

Crystal recalled a time when he was hosting the Grammy Awards. Comedian Jackie Mason made an inflammatory remark, and then Little Richard followed with something similar. Crystal was sent out to diffuse the situation, which he did by making a joke.

Jada Pinkett Smith's Ex August Alsina Shares Cryptic Post After Oscars Slap

  Jada Pinkett Smith's Ex August Alsina Shares Cryptic Post After Oscars Slap Jada Pinkett Smith's Ex August Alsina Shares Cryptic Post After Oscars SlapThe “No Love” singer, 29, shared a lengthy Instagram post about his art on Tuesday, March 29, two days after the Ali actor, 53, had an altercation with the comedian, 57, on stage at the 94th Academy Awards.

Still processing. Will Smith slapping Chris Rock at the 2022 Oscars is arguably the most shocking thing to ever happen at the Academy Awards, so it’s no surprise that late-night hosts had a lot to say about it. Jimmy Kimmel, who hosted the ceremony in 2017 and 2018, was surprised that the King Richard actor, 53, found a way to upstage what was previously the wildest thing to happen at the Oscars: Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty mistakenly announcing La La Land as the Best Picture winner over real winner Moonlight. “I’m a little bummed because I’ve only now hosted the second craziest Oscars of all time,” the Man Show alum, 54 quipped during the Monday, March 28, episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live! “Maybe they should do this at every awards show. ‘Still to come, the Grammy for Record of the Year, and who will Dua Lipa physically assault? Bruno Mars or Olivia Rodrigo? Find out next on the 64th Annual Grammy Awards!'” Stephen Colbert, for his part, joked that the slap was the “worst thing” Smith had ever done before quickly changing his mind. “Wait, I forgot about Wild Wild West,” the comedian, 57, said on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert. “I’m kidding, obviously. The worst thing he’s ever done is Gemini Man. Someone should slap both of the guys in that movie.”     The Men in Black star made headlines on Sunday, March 27, when he walked on stage and slapped Rock, 57, who was in the process of presenting the trophy for Best Documentary Feature. The Saturday Night Live alum joked that Will’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, could star in a sequel to G.I. Jane because of her shortly buzzed haircut. The Philadelphia native initially seemed to laugh at the quip, leading some viewers to think the slap was part of a bit. It quickly became clear that it wasn’t planned, however, when the Ali star sat back down and yelled, “Keep my wife’s name out your f–king mouth!” The following day, the newly-minted Oscar winner took to Instagram to apologize for the incident. “Violence in all of its forms is poisonous and destructive,” he wrote via Instagram on Monday. “My behavior at last night’s Academy Awards was unacceptable and inexcusable. Jokes at my expense are a part of the job, but a joke about Jada’s medical condition was too much for me to bear and I reacted emotionally.” (The Magic Mike XXL actress, 50, has been candid about her alopecia diagnosis.) The “Miami” rapper went on to “publicly apologize” to Rock. “I was out of line and I was wrong,” he continued. “I am embarrassed and my actions were not indicative of the man I want to be. There is no place for violence in a world of love and kindness.” Jada, for her part, subtly reacted to the situation on Tuesday, sharing an Instagram quote that read, “This is a season for healing and I’m here for it.” Keep scrolling to see what else late-night hosts had to say about the viral moment.
