Will Smith Oscars slap: Jim Carrey ‘sickened’ by standing ovation for best actor winner

Jim Carrey was “sickened” by the standing ovation for Will Smith’s Oscar win after he smacked Chris Rock at the Academy Awards.

The 60-year-old star branded Hollywood as “spineless” after the King Richard actor was lauded after winning the Best Actor for his role in the biopic despite striking comedian Chris Rock live on stage just 40 minutes earlier for a joke he made about his wife Jada’s shaven head.

“I was sickened. I was sickened by the standing ovation. Hollywood is just spineless en masse and it really felt like this is a really clear indication that we aren’t the cool club anymore,” Carey said.

The Sonic the Hedgehog star went on to claim that if it he had been in the same position as Chris – who has so far declined to press charges — he would now be suing Smith for hundreds of millions of dollars.
