People can't stop talking about what Will Smith did to Chris Rock at The Oscars on Sunday night. But there's still a major lingering question about the entire ordeal.

What led to Smith's outburst? The incident stems from a joke Rock made about the 1997 film, G.I. Jane, while hosting The 2022 Oscars. Demi Moore starred in the film, and famously shaved her hair off for the role.

Rock's joke compared Demi's look in the 1997 film to Jada Pinkett Smith, Will's wife. It was a bit distasteful, especially considering Jada has a nearly-bald head because she suffers from an auto-immune disease called alopecia. That's why Will was so angry at Rock.

Demi Moore, meanwhile, is currently one of the top-trending topics on Twitter after The Oscars aftermath.

"Has anyone checked on Demi Moore?" 

"wild that the most talked about movie of this year’s Oscars is gonna be a Demi Moore vehicle from 1997."

"I wish the most insulting thing anyone ever said to me was comparing me to Demi Moore… #Oscars2022."

"Just when you thought GI Jane would NEVER EVER be relevant at the #Oscars. The test of time tells all. Demi Moore and Viggo Mortensen watching the Oscars at home."

It's unclear if Chris Rock knew about Jada Pinkett Smith's alopecia before Sunday night's prestigious event. He definitely knows now.

Demi Moore, meanwhile, can't be happy about the stray she caught during Rock's routine.
