Judge Greg Mathis Speaks On Will Smith’s Oscars Slap

Media Take Out Staff |

Judge Greg Mathis gave his opinion on the Oscars slap, where Will Smith slapped Chris Rock on stage.

“I think anytime you commit an assault, you commit a crime. And committing an assault, no matter how embarrassing or humiliating, it does not legitimize an assault,” Mathis told Page Six.

Mathis said Smith was wrong to slap Rock but he was right to yell at him.

“However, I would have yelled from my seat,” Mathis said. “I gotta tell ya, I would’ve been a little disruptive. I would say, ‘Watch out, bro! Don’t talk about my wife again, Chris.’ I might have done that or be more diplomatic. I would speak with Chris backstage and let him know that he insulted my wife and that he owes my wife an apology. That’s the professional Greg Mathis.”

Mathis said if it were him, he would have had to retaliate.

“If someone smacks me, I can’t walk around Detroit. I would have to do something.”
