Richard Ayoade pokes fun at Will Smith’s Oscars slap during BAFTAs Awards

Richard Ayoade made a joke about Will Smith’s Oscars slap while hosting the 2022 BAFTA TV Awards.

Ayoade said: “BAFTA is celebrating 75 years at the heart of our industry, even though industries don’t have hearts.

“In 1955, there were only six categories.

Barely enough time to get up from your seat and slap someone before the whole ceremony would be over.”

Do not worry your overly-filmed heads, I’m not going to use your faces as punchlines or punchbags, you’ve suffered enough.

No-one works harder than us, apart from people in other professions.

Smith has since resigned from The Academy and been restricted from attending the Oscars for 10 years after the incident.

Recently Chris join Dave Chappelle on a show and said, “I got smacked by the softest n**** that ever rapped”.
