B) Watching it, I had the sneaking feeling it was staged...
C) So, why would they stage this? Perhaps the incredible amounts of publicity it is already generating?
D) If it wasn't staged I can only wonder what took so long. I mean, hasn't everyone wanted to slap Chris Rock? I mean he had a show about his life called Everybody Hates Chris, right?
E) Chris Rock's completely unphased response. Isn't it sort of an involuntary response to touch your face after it's been struck?
F) Chris Rock is so bad-ass that he can take a full-on, open-palmed face slap that sends him backwards and then react as though nothing had happened? Maybe...but I'm suspicious. Otherwise, damn! Represent Chris!
G) The body language of both after the slap does seem to suggest it was real; in which case Will was completely in the wrong. There's no defending it.
H) I never thought I'd be on team Chris Rock.
I) Actually, I'm on team Carlton. Alfonso Ribeiro is the true Star in my book.
K) That is all.
