Los Angeles Police Department on Monday confirmed to Variety that Chris Rock has “declined to file a police report” following an altercation with Will Smith at the 94th Academy Awards.
Smith had walked into stage during the 2022 Oscars and slapped Rock after the comedian made a joke about Jada Pinkett Smith, who is suffering from alopecia (hair loss).
A full statement from the Los Angeles Police Department reads: “LAPD investigative entities are aware of an incident between two individuals during the Academy Awards program. The incident involved one individual slapping another. The individual involved has declined to file a police report. If the involved party desires a police report at a later date, LAPD will be available to complete an investigative report.”
