After the 2022 Oscar Awards ceremony came to an end with many controversies about men, celebrities began to leave the Dobly Theater, the venue where the event was held. Andrew Garfield was one of those who managed to be seen after leaving the place and was also captured in what would seem to be an imitation of the slap that Will Smith gave Chris Rock during the ceremony.
A video published on YouTube and on social networks shows that the nominee for Best Actor for his leading role in ‘Tick, Tick…Bom!’, made an imitation of what was experienced halfway through the celebration of the 94th edition of the Academy Awards. In the clip, it is shown how he walks and approaches two women to refer to this controversial fact that took the spotlight of the award ceremony.

However, the actress did not take the “joke” well and her husband, Will Smith responded to that, addressing the comedian with the intention of “putting him in her place”.
