Social media: Jim Carrey is the latest celebrity to come under fire after weighing in on Will Smith assaulting Chris Rock during the Academy Awards on Sunday evening

During the same night, Jim also tried to kiss Will, 53, after he was announced as the winner for MTV Movie & TV Award for Best Kiss. Will pushed Jim off while making his way to the stage to collect his gong.

The two resurfaced clips are now doing the rounds on Twitter, as online users brand Jim a ‘hyprocrite’ for condeming Will’s actions, after similarly assauting someone at an awards ceremony himself.

Jim told CBS’ Gayle King: ‘I was sickened by the standing ovation. Hollywood is just spineless en masse and it really felt like this is a really clear indication that we aren’t the cool club anymore.’

Hitting out: The comedian, 60, criticsed Hollywood for giving Will a standing ovation following his Best Actor win, minutes after he slapped Chris while he was up on stage presenting the documentary feature category

‘I’d have announced this morning that I was suing Will for $200 million because that video is going to be there forever, it’s going to be ubiquitous. 

‘That insult is gonna last a very long time. If you want to yell from the audience and show disapproval or say something on Twitter [that’s fine]. But you do not have the right to walk up on stage and smack somebody in the face because they said words.’

Carrey concluded, ‘[The slap] came out of nowhere because Will has something going on inside him that’s frustrated. I wish him the best. I have nothing against Will Smith. He’s done great things, but that was not a good moment. It cast a shadow over everyone’s shining moment last night…It was a selfish moment.’

Shocked: Following Jim’s interview, many people reacted to the comments by reminding Jim of the moment he forcibly kissed Alicia and attempted to kiss Will

Following Jim’s interview, many people reacted to the comments by reminding Jim of the moment he forcibly kissed Alicia and attempted to kiss Will.

One said: ‘In that case, Jim Carrey should be jailed for sexually assaulting a teenaged Alicia Silverstone on stage at the 1997 MTV Awards, and then also trying to sexually assault Will Smith at the same awards show.’

Another added: ‘It’s amazing that Jim Carrey sexually assaulted Alicia Silverstone by phyically forcing her kiss him on national TV, when she was SEVENTEEN, and it had literally no impact on his career whatsoever. He’s such a complete piece of s**t on so many levels.’, although the Twitter user said she was 17, she was actually 19 at the time. 

Backing off: A third shared a meme of Homer Simpson backing into a hedge, and wrote: ‘Jim Carrey being reminded of his forcible kiss on then 19-year-old Alicia Silverstone’

A third shared a meme of Homer Simpson backing into a hedge, and wrote: ‘Jim Carrey being reminded of his forcible kiss on then 19-year-old Alicia Silverstone.’

One other said: ‘Jim Carrey tried to French kiss Will Smith at the MTV movie awards and he kissed Alicia Silverstone without her content at the same awards show.

‘So he assaulted two people in one night and no body said a word. He should be minding his own business.’

One other person said: ‘Jim Carrey… the guy who kissed a 19-year old Alicia Silverstone without her content… that Jim Carrey?’

Jim reshared the CBS video and someone replied: ‘Didn’t you sexually assault Alicia Silverstone?’

While people squabbled over the age of the star at the time, one said: ‘She wasn’t 19, she wasn’t 20!’ Does that matter right now? He forcibly kissed Alicia Silverstone AND also tried to do the same thing to Will Smith.

‘Regardless of age or age gaps, what Jim Carrey did was ASSAULT. He’s scum and he had no business forcing himself on people!’

Can’t believe it: Everyone was saying the same thing regarding Jim’s comments

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is holding an emergency board meeting to discuss disciplinary action against the star for slapping Rock.

The Academy, which condemned Will’s actions, said it was reviewing the episode but the inquiry is expected to take a few weeks, sources familiar with the matter said. 

It comes after View host Whoopi Goldberg, who is also a member of the Academy, said she believes Smith will be able to keep his Oscar following the controversy but he will still face some form of punishment for the on-stage assault.

‘There are consequences,’ Whoopi said. ‘There are big consequences because nobody is OK with what happened. Nobody, nobody, nobody.’ 

Speaking out: It comes after View host Whoopi Goldberg, who is also a member of the Academy, said she believes Smith will be able to keep his Oscar

Whoopi defended Smith on Monday, saying ‘sometimes you behave badly’ and that she believed he ‘snapped.’ 

If the group determines Will violated its standards of conduct, members could expel the actor from the organization, revoke his Oscar, or make him ineligible for future awards. 

Meanwhile wife Jada Pinkett Smith, 50, finally broke her silence on Tuesday with an Instagram post that read, ‘This is a season for healing and I’m here for it.’

Will released an apology, saying his behavior was ‘unacceptable and inexcusable’ and left him ’embarrassed’.

‘This is a season for healing and I’m here for it,’ the actress posted to Instagram Tuesday, two days after the incident that stunned millions of viewers

Earlier this week, Zoe Kravitz’s condemnation of Will also backfired as fans flocked to Twitter to slam the star for a historic comment about the actor’s son Jaden. 

Taking aim at Will following the attack, Zoe, 33, captioned an Instagram picture of her awards dress: ‘Here’s my dress at the show where we are apparently assaulting people on stage now.’

However Twitter was quick to remind Zoe of her own murky past and brought up creepy comments she had previously made about the King Richard actor’s son, now 23, when they starred in After Earth together when he was aged 14 and she was aged 24.

When asked about Jaden during an interview with V Magazine for their June 2013 issue, Zoe said: ‘There were moments that I was hanging out with Jaden and thinking, I can’t believe you’re 14, I have to check myself, like what I say to you.’

‘He has so much personality and so much swag, he is so much cooler than I am. And he’s so handsome, I was always like, when you’re older, you know, we’ll hang out…Nope, that’s inappropriate, you’re 14.’

Awkward: Earlier this week, Zoe Kravitz ‘s condemnation of Will also backfired as fans flocked to Twitter to slam the star for a historic comment about the actor’s son Jaden

Problematic: However Twitter was quick to remind Zoe of her own murky past and brought up creepy comments she had previously made about the King Richard actor’s son, now 23, when they starred in After Earth together aged 14 (pictured at the time)

Online users were horrified by the inappropriate remarks and branded Zoe a ‘hypocrite’ as they suggested she was in no position to criticise the screen star.

Another person said: ‘I love Twitter for exposing these f-ing hypocrites like Jim Carret, Judd Apatow, Zoe Kravitz. 

‘They want to judge Will Smith (a man who’s been a class act for 30 years) for one mistake, as if they haven’t done worse. Get them all.’ 


Hitting out: Zoe, 33, captioned an Instagram picture of her awards dress: ‘Here’s my dress at the the show where we are apparently assaulting people on stage now’

With one person saying: ‘Zoe Kravitz is also not having a good day. They really should just not even comment. Nobody is perfect. Did they really think their own dirt wouldn’t be brought out too?

‘Hollywood is full of hypocrites and narcissits.’ 

One person said: ‘We’re looking at Zoe Kravitz for being weird with a 14 year-old boy.’

Shocking: After Will Smith, 53, stormed on stage during Sunday night’s Oscars ceremony and smacked comedian Chris Rock following a joke he made about his wife’s alopecia, Zoe hit out at the star’s actions on social media

A second person added: ‘No way am I seeing Zoe Kravitz thirsting over 14 year-old Jaden Smith…’

Another said: ‘Zoe Kravitz liking a 14-year-old… very interesting.’

One other commented on how quickly she has been cancelled, writing: ‘Zoe Kravitz has the quickest rise and fall on this app lol.’

One other said: ‘Nothing will ever beat how quickly the internet will switch up on someone. Yesterday Zoe Kravitz was the sexiest woman ever and today she has to beat predator allegations.’ 

Speaking out: Zoe also previously said of her After Earth co-star Will that he was ‘sweet’ and ‘down to earth’ after starring in the film with the Fresh Prince of Bel Air actor

A different person joked: ‘Zoe Kravitz just mad at Will Smith for telling he to stay away from his son that’s why she said all that.’

Another person brought up the fact that she refused to work for Essence – which has a black readership – because it wasn’t ‘her audience’.

The Twitter user claimed: ‘Zoe Kravitz is funny. Will never forgetting working at essence and us trying to book her for interviews/covers/events etc and her team declining bcuz we “aren’t her audience”.

Zoe also previously said of her After Earth co-star Will that he was ‘sweet’ and ‘down to earth’ after starring in the film with the Fresh Prince of Bel Air actor.

Reaction: Online users were horrified by the inappropriate remarks and branded Zoe a ‘hypocrite’ as they suggested she was in no position to criticise the screen star

One other commented on how quickly she has been cancelled, writing: ‘Zoe Kravitz has the quickest rise and fall on this app lol’

She told Elle in 2013: ‘He’s one of the kindest people I’ve ever met. Watching him and Jaden together, it was cool to see so much love in their father-son dynamic. He’s a superstar but he’s the sweetest, most normal, down-to-earth person ever.’

Zoe and Jaden, then 15, were seen walking the red carpet at the Divergent premiere together in 2015.

While the two haven’t really been linked since, their families appear to have stayed close, as Will shared a snap of his daughter Willow braiding Zoe’s hair. 

He wrote: ‘Something about this pic gets me every time! Willow Smith braiding Zoe’s hair. Lenny Kravitz took this shot in Paris. The sisterly love is on [100 emoji].
