On the Will Smith Oscar incident, Jay Leno reveals: "The Thing That Wasn't The Slap" ...

Last month, a Comedian and a former Tonight Show host were in touch about slapping at the Oscars. Leno, who dubbed Smith a "good guy," said that the most shocking moment to him came following the slap.

"To me, the most damaging thing wasn't the slap, because he was kind of smirking after slapping [Rock]," Leno the Palm Beach Daily News this week. "It was the yelling of the obscenities. Then you go, "Whoa. What's going on here? This is real anger."

After the incident, the Academy would "follow an official process that will take a few weeks," according to Leno.

"What are you investigating?" he said. "It had to be the most recorded assault in history. I saw Chris' arm. I saw him. I see so many cameras on this incident. What are you investigating? I know sometimes things are just what they appear to be."

Smith from his membership and the Academy's meeting, where he went, became known for the following ten years following the Academy's announcement.

Short after the incident, other comedians rallied around Rock.

Billy Crystal the Smith-Chris Rock confrontation, a nine-time Oscar nominee, was a "most disturbing incident, for sure." As Leno, he was clear about the moment: "It was an assault."

Howard Stern, Jim Carrey, Kathy Griffin, and others are also among those who have joined the cast.
