Michael Bay is ready for everyone to stop talking about Will Smith’s slap


“So I really don’t care,” Bay told Yahoo. “It wasn’t right. I worked with him. He’s not that guy. I’ve never seen him lose his temper like that.”

Like many who saw Smith slap Chris Rock onstage at this year’s Oscars, Bay said he initially thought the incident was planned.

Especially because Bay said he was “on set when Will was fucking with people, joking with people.”

The director said he hasn’t watched the hit live, but many people have been texting him about it and he knows it’s a hot topic.

Bay suggested that there are bigger topics that deserve more attention.

“Hollywood is getting very self-centered,” Bay said. “There are babies blowing themselves up in Ukraine right now. We should talk about that.”
