Bill Maher Roasts Hollywood Elite's Standing Ovation for Will Smith after Oscars Slap: 'It Was a Bad Night for Liberal Hypocrisy'

“Real Time” host Bill Maher chastised the Hollywood elites who gave Will Smith a standing ovation moments after he assaulted Chris Rock at the Academy Awards.

Maher kicked off the panel discussion Friday night by addressing what he called a “national moment” where “the whole country is paying attention to something.”

“It exposed, I thought, a lot of aspects of this society we have which are not terribly positive — toxic masculinity, victim culture,” Maher said. “Liberal hypocrisy, I think, was the big loser.”
