‘I was sickened by the standing ovation,’ he said. ‘Hollywood is just spineless en masse and it really felt like this is a really clear indication that we aren’t the cool club anymore.’

‘[The slap] came out of nowhere because Will has something going on inside him that’s frustrated. I wish him the best. I have nothing against Will Smith. He’s done great things, but that was not a good moment. It cast a shadow over everyone’s shining moment last night… It was a selfish moment,’ said Carrey.
The interview did not settle well with the online users as a video of the 1997 MTV movies awards resurfaced where Jim Carrey could be seen forcibly kissing young Alicia Silverstone after receiving the award for best comedian.
