What is Real, What is Staged?

Was the infamous Will Smith vs Chris Rock slap faked? if it was real, why didn’t they cut to a commercial break when the slap happened? Instead they maximized the incident with a close up of Smith cussing at Rock. Hmmm… And why did the celebrities in the audience give Smith a standing ovation during his (unapologetic) acceptance speech? Smith appeared to be smirking as he walked back to his seat and Rock suspiciously stuck his face out to be slapped. The event was sponsored by Pfizer, (they make an alopecia drug). How many coincidences are needed? All the world’s a stage.

Kat Williams’ theory makes sense to me, Hollyweird desperately needed a spectacle, their ratings were at an all-time low. Was the slap a “humiliation ritual”?

When you speak the truth, they discredit and punish you. Kat Williams didn’t seem bipolar at all during shows or interviews, he was calm, with steadily paced thoughts and clever insights. Bipolar folks speak rapidly, in tangents and at a nonstop incoherent pace, their thoughts race constantly. The mental illness label seems like a code for censorship. Did they silence Kat Wiliams because he was waking too many people up?

Predecessors to the slap:

1) Will Smith pretend slapping a child on stage:

2) Andy Kaufman getting slapped:

What’s real and what’s faked? I don’t believe anything that’s broadcast anymore.



  1. “The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it is profitable to continue to the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater.” Frank Zappa

    All the world is a stage and it always has been. This means all common knowledge is a complete LIE and that is very hard to fully digest. The truth is stranger than fiction.

  2. It’s true when it comes to hollywierd, the line between fake and reality is very blurred. Andy Kaufman’s comedy was based in the fact that you couldn’t tell the difference between if he was performing or the altercations were real. Advertising dollars, career boosts and blackballing are a part of the hollywierd scene.

    1. I now think that Hollyweird’s true purpose is propaganda/distraction (not entertainment). Andy Kaufman was an interesting comedian. I think most of his altercations were staged but he might’ve gotten accidentally hurt during some jokes. Blackballing seems like a routine thing. The celebrities that I like are the ones that left Hollyweird early in their career, I think they wouldn’t sell out.

      1. Just think of the celebrities who were the hot ticket item for a while and suddenly fell off the map. Propaganda/distraction is right, taking our eyes off the worldly mishaps and shenanigans.
