The 58-year-old comedian — who was co-hosting the awards show when Smith stormed the stage and slapped comedian Rock across the face — says she is “still traumatized” almost two months on from the incident.
It’s not the first time the comedian has spoken out against Smith since the March 27 slap?
Less than an hour after the assault, Smith won the Best Actor Oscar for his role in “King Richard,” and even received a standing ovation from the audience.
Sykes isn’t the only star to publicly slam Smith for the assault — which occurred after Rock made a joke about Smith’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, who suffers from alopecia.
Comedian Jim Carrey said he would have sued Smith, while Steve Harvey said he “lost a lot of respect” for Smith.
Last month, Smith was spotted in Mumbai, India, amid reports he still hasn’t apologized to Rock over the on-camera assault.
However, Smith has resigned from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences following the uproar about his actions, and he has additionally been banned from any academy events for the next 10 years.
