Why is Zoe Kravitz trending?

Zoe Kravitz is most recently known for her role as Cat Woman in the 2022 film, The Batman, and attended the Oscar Awards Ceremony on March 27.

The 31-year-old actress posted photos of herself at the event on social media the following day with captions alluding to Smith's altercation with comedian Chris Rock.

In the first photo, Kravitz poses on the red carpet in a blush-colored gown with the caption, "Here’s a picture of my dress at the show where we are apparently assaulting people on stage now.”

She posted a second photo of her in a white dress at the after-party with the caption, "And here is a picture of my dress at the party after the award show – where we are apparently screaming profanities and assaulting people on stage now."

What happened at the Oscars?

The 2022 Oscars were overshadowed when Smith left his seat to go on stage and slap Rock in the face for making a joke about his wife, Jada.

Comedian Chris Rock was on stage to announce the award for Best Actor when he joked about Smith's wife Jada's newly shaved head, and said, "G.I. Jane 2, can’t wait to see it."

Jada Smith, who suffers from alopecia, had buzzed her head and appeared to roll her eyes, but Smith, after hitting Rock, yelled, "Keep my wife’s name out your f***ing mouth.”

Smith won the Best Actor Award shortly after the confrontation and has since apologized to the Academy Awards for his conduct.

In an apology shared on social media, Smith said, “Violence in all of its forms is poisonous and destructive.

“My behavior at last night’s Academy Awards was unacceptable and inexcusable. Jokes at my expense are a part of the job, but a joke about my Jada’s medical condition was too much for me to bear and I reacted emotionally.”

He added, “I would like to publicly apologize to you, Chris. I was out of line and I was wrong. I am embarrassed and my actions were not indicative of the man I want to be. There is no place for violence in a world of love and kindness.”

How have people responded to Zoe Kravitz's posts?

Kravitz has received mixed responses to her Instagram posts that appear to reference Smith hitting Rock during the award ceremony.

Some have advised her to stay quiet about the event, with one person saying, "STOPP THE SHADE," while another said, "Zoe stay out of this one."

But fans have also spoken out in support of the actress, and in addressing the comment for Kravitz to stay out of the altercation, the individual said, "Will (Smith) made the entire academy and world a part of this wym “stay out?”

In response to Kravitz's photo at the after-party, another person commented and said, "The looks are killer, the captions are the tone of reality I'm living for."
