The story of the week - and early frontrunner for story of the year - belongs to actor Will Smith and comedian Chris Rock.

During the Oscars on Sunday night, Rock made a joke at the expense of Jada Pinkett Smith, Will's wife. The actor didn't take kindly to the joke, walked up on stage and slapped Rock in the face.

Of course, everyone has been talking about the viral moment on social media - and we mean everyone. Even former NFL star O.J. Simpson decided to talk about the incident.

He wasn't a fan.

"It was unfortunate, I think Will was wrong. Look, I understood the feeling,” he said. “In my life I’ve been through a lot of crap, when I was raising two young kids and every comedian in the country had an O.J. routine. And don’t think I wouldn’t wanna B-slapa couple of those guys, but you gotta accept it’s humor.”

He also wasn't a fan of Chris Rock' joke, which he called "semi unfunny." He also believes he would have been in deep trouble with the law if he did what Will Smith did.

"I know this, after what happened to me in Las Vegas, if I would’ve done that in front of a billion people around the world, they would’ve given me life without," he said. "I’m just saying."

Is O.J. right?
