Trevor Noah makes Will Smith joke during the 2022 Grammys

Trevor Noah is the Grammy host of 2022 this year and it seemed almost impossible to get through the whole ceremony without hearing a joke about Will Smith’s Oscar slap around the world – I mean, just a week ago, help fell. It turned out that we did not have to wait long. The joke came during the opening monologue, as we literally did not spend even 10 minutes on the show before being slapped. At the end of the monologue, Trevor Noah said ironically that tonight, “We will keep people’s names out of our mouths,” which is a riff on what Will shouted at the Oscars. Definitely smart, I guess!

If you have not lived under a rock in the last week, you have probably heard that Will slapped Chris Rock during the 2022 Oscars. Here is a quick TL? DR: Chris took the stage to present the Best Documentary Award made a joke before the show at the expense of Jada Pinkett Smith. He said he was looking forward to seeing GI Jane 2, in relation to Jada shaved head. Jada has talked about her struggles with alopecia, which causes hair loss. Will did not like the joke, so he got on stage and slapped Chris. Then he returned to his seat and shouted, “Keep my wife’s name out of your mouth” twice. About 30 minutes later, Will received the Best Actor award. It was a lot!

In the week since the slap in the face, the internet has not stopped talking about it. And it seems that the consequences for Will have not yet come. The Academy Award-winning Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is still debating what to do about Will’s participation. Will publicly apologized and resigned from the Academy, but the news of the slap shows no signs of slowing down.

That’s why it seemed inevitable that someone would make a joke about it at the Grammys — I mean, again, I’re still brushing the crumbs from my Oscar lap. Both awards are back-to-back! I have not slept well since!
