Rock compared Pinkett Smith's shaved head to the look of Demi Moore in the 1997 movie 'G.I. Jane'. Rock said he couldn't wait to see Pinkett Smith, who has alopecia (a medical condition that results in abnormal hair loss), star in 'G.I. Jane 2', which led Smith to go up on stage and slap Rock. "That was one of the greatest nights in the history of television," said a shocked Chris Rock when Smith went up to the stage and slapped the comedian right across his face.
Later, the actor returned to his seat and shouted, "Keep my wife's name out of your fu--ing mouth!"
Meanwhile, Chris Rock has not yet spoken out since the incident.
