Even Serena Williams was stunned by what happened between Will Smith and Chris Rock at The Oscars on Sunday night.

Earlier Sunday evening, Smith appeared to hit Rock on stage and yell at him for a joke about his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith.

Rock reportedly made a joke about Jada Pinkett Smith's bald head. Pinkett Smith has dealt with hair loss issues in recent years and has opened up about them in emotional fashion.

Will Smith, meanwhile, took to the stage to hit Rock before telling him to keep his wife "out of your f---king mouth."

Video of the fight has gone viral.

Later in the night, Will Smith won the best actor Oscar for his performance in King Richard, in which he portrays Richard Williams, the father of Venus and Serena.

The Williams sisters are in attendance on Sunday night. Serena Williams took to her Instagram Story following the fight between Will Smith and Chris Rock. She was just as stunned as the rest of us.

Will Smith, meanwhile, paid tribute to Richard Williams during his acceptance speech. “Richard Williams was a fierce defender of his family,” said Will Smith. “In this time in my life, I am overwhelmed by what God is calling on me to do and be in this world.”

It's been quite a night.
