During a post-Oscars interview, comedian Tiffany Haddish called the slap “beautiful.” Sharing her opinion with PEOPLEthe Girls Trip star expressed her own emotions inspired by the viral moment.

“When I saw a Black man stand up for his wife. That meant so much to me,” she said to the outlet. “As a woman, who has been unprotected, for someone to say, ‘Keep my wife’s name out your mouth, leave my wife alone,’ that’s what your husband is supposed to do, right? Protect you.”

Haddish added, “And that meant the world to me. And maybe the world might not like how it went down, but for me, it was the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen because it made me believe that there are still men out there that love and care about their women, their wives.”

50 Cent also used Instagram to release a few jokes about the incident. “You have to win Oscars to do this kinda sh*t,” shared the rapper in one of his uploads about the moment. “after i win i’m gonna slap the sh*t out of a few people. LOL.”
