Rock tried to regain his composure, and a stunned audience, both in the theater and at home, tried to figure out what had happened.

The comedian recovered enough to present the best documentary award to “Summer of Soul.”

After winning his prize, Smith apologized to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences, the non-profit behind the Oscars, and his fellow nominees, but also sought to explain his outburst.

He said;

Love will make you do crazy things. To do what we do, you got to be able to take abuse. You got to be able to have people talk crazy about you. In this business you got to be able to have people disrespecting you. And you got to smile, you got to pretend like that’s okay.
