Actress Tiffany Haddish defends Will Smith slapping Chris Rock at the Oscars as ‘most

beautiful thing’ she’s ever seen

 When I saw a Black man stand up for his wife. That meant so much to me. As a woman, who has been unprotected, for someone to say like, ‘Keep my wife’s name out your mouth, leave my wife alone,’ that’s what your husband is supposed to do, right? Protect you. And that meant the world to me,” Haddish said.
The actress, who co-starred with Pinkett Smith in Girls Trip, continued, “And maybe the world might not like how it went down, but for me, it was the most beautiful thing I ever seen because it made me believe that there are still men out there that love and care about their women, their wives.”
And that’s their friend,” Haddish said of Rock. “As a friend, why would you do that? He didn’t even run the joke by her, but she was hurt, though. If she wouldn’t have been hurt, he probably wouldn’t have said nothing. But you could see he was clearly … And they exploited it. They exploited her, so … He protected his wife.
