At the moment it seems like we’re never going to hear the end of Will Smith slapping Chris Rock at the Oscars last Sunday, but at least this new footage is actually vaguely interesting and we’re not just listening to someone else’s hot take on the situation.

The new video appears to have been filmed on someone at the ceremony’s mobile phone – maybe Andrew Garfield or Bradley Cooper? – and shows Smith walking away from the slap and sitting down next to Jada. She seems to be laughing and clapping through most of Will Smith’s sweary tirade after that, although she does look over at him to check that he’s OK after his little outburst. She seems to applaud and laugh at Chris Rock’s attempt to style it all out as well which is kinda odd.
All in all it’s quite a confusing video and doesn’t really offer us any answers – probably just more questions to be honest. Take a look at it below and see what you think:

Yeah again that isn’t really that useful is it? It’s especially annoying that it didn’t capture the actual slap so that everyone who’s been saying it’s fake because there’s only one angle of it can wind their necks in. I imagine that angle will probably be released in the next couple of days though to keep the story going even longer. It’s all part of the plan.
