‘The View’ Spars on Will Smith at the Oscars: “That’s Not A Show Of Love, That’s A Show Of Violence”

Today on The View, the hottest topic of all was, no surprise, Will Smith’s behavior at the Academy Awards on Sunday night. The actor slapped Chris Rock on stage for telling a joke about his wife Jada Pinkett Smith, and later won the Best Actor Oscar, apologizing to the Academy (but not to Rock) for his behavior. Co-host Ana Navarro felt the same as the rest of us when she explained, “At first I thought it was a joke. I think a lot of us thought it was a joke,” saying that she couldn’t believe it was really happening and saying that despite Rock making a “lame” joke at Pinkett Smith’s expense, “Nothing, nada, cero, condones violence in this form. Nada.”

The controversial co-host, once again subbing in for Meghan McCain’s empty conservative seat, was called back to The View today to discuss hot topics like CPAC, the American education system, and more.

Though it wasn’t as cringe-worthy as her debut on The View, fans were equally upset about her statements on the panel. And we have to do this all again tomorrow!
