There continues to be a lot of buzz about last night’s Academy Awards show, and very little of it has anything to do with any of the movies. Actor Will Smith smacking presenter Chris Rock after his “G.I. Jane II” joke about his wife is what everybody’s still talking about, and CNN reported it in the most CNN way possible:

That’s got “fiery but mostly peaceful” written all over it!

THIS. Is CNN.

The Academy Awards later tweeted that they don’t condone violence, but they gave Smith the Best Actor Oscar not long after he hit Rock, so go figure.
