Jim Carrey says that if he were in Chris Rock’s position, he would have sued Will Smith for hitting him on live television.
“I’d have announced this morning that I was suing Will for $200 million,” he said. “Because that video’s gonna be there forever. It’s gonna be ubiquitous. That insult is gonna last a very long time.”
“I was sickened. I was sickened by the standing ovation,” he said. “I felt like Hollywood is just spineless en masse. And it really felt like this is a really clear indication that we’re not the cool club anymore.”

Carrey says he should have found another way to express his disapproval.
“If you wanna yell from the audience and disapprove … or say something on Twitter or whatever [, go ahead],” he added. “You do not have the right to walk up on stage and smack somebody in the face ’cause they said words.”
Is Jim Carrey right?
