Will Smith vs Chris Rock: Do Comedians Go too Far with Their Jokes?

Startling, if not bizarre events at the Oscar Awards Ceremony on Sunday continue to dominate headlines across the globe.

Hollywood actor Will Smith not only made the news for winning best actor for his role in the movie, King Richard at the Oscars on Sunday, he also stole the headlines for "dishing" one out to fellow superstar, Chris Rock.                                            

Comedian Rock - while on stage - made a joke about Smith's wife, Jade Pinkett Smith. It was an apparent reference to her shaved hairdo - a result of the hair loss condition, alopecia.

However, the joke didn't go down well with Jade. Smith, in response, walked up on stage and struck Rock before returning to his seat. 

Airing their thoughts on the incident on the Social Media segment of Whaats Up Lagos, the Tekes also sought to know if Smith's action could be justified.

Watch video to find out what they had to say.
