Laura Ingraham Laughs at 1996 Clip of Chris Rock Insulting Her: 'Ma’am, You Are the Meanest B*tch I Ever'

Fox News host Laura Ingraham was in the middle of a segment on actor Will Smith slapping the crap out of Chris Rock Sunday night at the Academy Awards for joking about his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, when guest Raymond Arroyo appeared to surprise her with a clip from 1996 of Rock letting lose on her.

After calmly standing up and walking up to Rock on live television and smacking him in the face, Smith returning to his seat before screaming twice, “Keep my wife’s name out of your f*cking mouth!” Minutes after the violent display, Smith is announced as the winner of Best Actor for his role in King Richard, in which he portrayed Venus and Serena Williams’ father, and the room gave him a standing ovation.

“Giving him a standing ovation, Laura, after that assault is really everything that’s wrong with us as a people,” he said. “And I have to say it was shocking to watch that reaction. But Laura, I guess you now have grounds for a smackdown too. We found this clip from the 1990s.”
