The presenters of ABC’s “The View” celebrated Halloween this year by dressing up as famous TV characters (Wopi Goldberg was in June from The Handmaid’s Tale, Joy Behar was Peggy Bundy from Married… with Children, etc.). to that), but it’s a different outfit on the show that attracts the most attention. During a segment in which the kids wore costumes inspired by the “hot topics” section of the talk show, the show featured a young boy dressed as an Oscar slapper. The costume was a gold body suit to make the child look like an Oscar statuette, as well as a red handprint painted on his face to simulate Will Smith’s slap on Chris Rock.
The episode was hosted by Ashley Alderfer Kaufman, who works as a wardrobe supervisor on “The View.” Kaufman told viewers during the costume reveal, “We don’t want to endorse any kind of violence but can’t help but talk about one of the hottest topics of the year.”
The “Oscar Slap” costume shocked viewers, many of them to social media to criticize the decision. One viewer said the outfit was “in bad taste”, while Another noteIt’s hard to keep up with everything, but the red handprint on one’s face is a symbol of the missing and murdered Aboriginal women and girls. Unfortunately, no one was able to report this fashion idea beforehand.
Other costumes featured during this segment included kids dressed in a Mar-a-Lago raid costume (a kid in a Donald Trump wig dressed as a toilet cleaning FBI documents) and the blooper (a kid in an inflatable car dealership costume with money affixed to it. He-she ).
Goldberg, the Academy Award winner and longtime Academy member, said Smith’s decision to slap Chris Rock was “unacceptable” during the March episodes of “The View” that followed the incident. She added at the time, “I think he overreacted. I think he had one of those moments where he was [goddamn it], Stop. I see, not everyone behaves the way we would like them to act under pressure. and exploded.”
“We’re not going to take an Oscar from him,” Goldberg added at the time. “There will be consequences, I’m sure.”
Goldberg was right, because the Academy did not strip Smith of his Best Actor Oscar but suspended his membership for 10 years. Watch the full clip from “The View” in the video below.
