Word On The Curb..
Alec Baldwin is likening Sunday’s Oscars to “The Jerry Springer Show” after Will Smith slapped Chris Rock in a shocking moment onstage during the ceremony.
The former “30 Rock” star — who’s facing a lawsuit over last year’s fatal shooting of a cinematographer on the New Mexico set of his film, “Rust” — shared a message of support for Rock on Monday following the stunning altercation.
After Rock made a joke about Smith’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, the “King Richard” actor stormed the stage and slapped the comedian. Smith then returned to his seat in the Los Angeles theater and continued to berate Rock.
“I am not reading much about how, or even if, the producers attended to Chris,” Baldwin, 63, wrote to his 1 million Twitter followers.
“But I love you, Chris Rock,” Baldwin said.
