“I Would Sue Will Smith For 200 Million Dollars”: Jim Carrey Is Sickened By Hollywood’s Reaction To The Oscars Fiasco

The internet has been overflowing with reactions and conversations about an incident that occurred at the 94th Academy Awards. The show took a bizarre turn when Will Smith went onstage and slapped Chris Rock for a joke the comedian made about Jada Pinkett Smith’s shaved head.

On Monday, during an interview with Gayle King for CBS Mornings, Jim Carrey had something to say about these actions, and he did not hold back. The actor slammed the Oscars audience for giving Smith a standing ovation when it was announced he won best actor for his performance in King Richard. Smith taking home the trophy occurred just several minutes after the troubling incident.

“I was sickened,” Carrey said. “I was sickened by the standing ovation. I felt like Hollywood is just spineless en masse and it really felt like this is a really clear indication that we’re not the cool club anymore.” He was deeply saddened by the crowd’s reaction to Smith’s win and noted his actions overshadowed the entire evening.
