TueWhen the Oscars went through one of the most viral moments in history, the reaction of the people in attendance was not the same as in the usual setting. What happened to Dave Chapelle’s assailant, who went on stage to grab him, is happening exactly as usual. But if Will Smith is one of the most powerful people in Hollywood, he just received a slap in the face and even received applause after he won his Academy Award.
For Howard Stern, these two situations are the perfect representation of the vast contrast that exists between one reality and the other. He wanted Will Smith to at least be taken into custody for what he did to Chris Rock, but that didn’t happen. On the other hand, Isaiah Lee appears to have even completely dislocated one of his arms, judging by the images shown online.
A hot look from Howard Stern.
Here’s what Stern said on his radio show: “This guy jumped on stage and attacked Dave Chappelle. As soon as this happened, they let him return to his seat, laugh and sit next to his wife, and then presented them with an award? Not! They took him backstage, broke his arms and hands so hard. They beat the hell out of him. Unlike the Oscars, Jamie Foxx ran on stage and helped Dave Chappelle.”
He continued: “At the Oscars, everyone came up and comforted Will Smith because it was live and Hollywood didn’t know what to do with Will Smith. Listen! Attacking Chapelle. The audience at the Oscars applauded Will Smith after the attack, it’s true. It’s on tape, it’s not fake news. They didn’t break Will’s arms, they shook them and that’s wrong and they should all be ashamed of themselves.”
Howard Stern has always been known for his outrageously hot footage and this is no different as he openly encourages violence on his show. While the reality is that Will Smith got away with what he should have been beaten for, he still should have been taken into police custody, but nothing more.
Unfortunately, Hollywood offers a special treatment for celebrities that ordinary people don’t have. Isaiah Lee he was already convicted of a crime, but he will also remember this beating for the rest of his life. Will Smith’s privilege will never allow him to be at risk despite being violent towards a fellow artist. That’s the way things are in this twisted world.
