  • Chris Rock declined to file a police report with the LAPD after Will Smith slapped him at the Oscars.

  • Smith rushed the stage to slap Rock after he made a comment about Jada Pinkett Smith.

  • Pinkett Smith has recently been open about her struggle with alopecia, a hair loss condition.

Following a tense altercation at Sunday's Oscar award ceremony, Chris Rock declined to file a police report against Will Smith for slapping him, according to a statement released by the Los Angeles Police Department.

"LAPD investigative entities are aware of an incident between two individuals during the Academy Awards program. The incident involved one individual slapping another," the statement read. "The individual involved has declined to file a police report. If the involved party desires a police report at a later date, LAPD will be available to complete an investigative report."

Smith slapped Rock after Rock made a joke about Smith's wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, and her bald look.

Pinkett Smith has recently shared about her struggles with alopecia, a hair loss condition.
