GERALDO RIVERA (HOST): Then, as minutes passed, and the feed from Australia and Japan became available on Twitter, you could hear him say, “Don't let my -- get my wife's name out of your mouth" et cetera, et cetera, et cetera. 

I said, “Wow, Will Smith is great going to the defense of his wife, it's wonderful." And then he wins the Academy Award. So now, it's his night, it's his night. He avenges the dishonor given his wife, he wins the greatest award in acting, and it's his night.

And then I started feeling guilty about it. I started thinking about it — and Erica was mentioning, you know, “Don't you always talk about Black on Black crime? Don't you always talk about violence, the ghetto civil war, and this and that and the other thing? How could you cheer on this man slapping this other guy? What kind of example is that to anybody?"
