Zoë Kravitz has made her thoughts on the Will Smith/Chris Rock drama very clear in a couple of new Instagram posts.

In case you've been off the planet for the last couple of days, then you may not know that during Sunday night's Academy Awards ceremony, 53-year-old Smith had a physical altercation with 57-year-old Rock.

The Men in Black star was left furious after the comedian made a joke about his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, saying: "Jada, I love ya! G.I. Jane 2 - can't wait to see it!" The joke was seemingly a comment on the 50-year-old's hairstyle being similar to that of Demi Moore's buzzcut in the 1997 movie G.I. Jane.

However, considering Pinkett Smith has been open about her history with alopecia, Smith did not take kindly to the joke and stormed the stage, before slapping Rock around the face. "Keep my wife's name out of your f***ing mouth," he then screamed, after returning to his seat.

Check out Rock's joke in the video below:

The uncomfortable and ugly moment has left people divided. Some people believe Rock was in the wrong for making a joke in reference to such a heartbreaking condition. Others believe Smith was way out of line for becoming physical over a joke. And others think the whole thing was staged (but seriously, ask yourself why any of them would agree to that).

One person who had clearly been left unimpressed by the I Am Legend star's actions is 33-year-old Zoë Kravitz.

Like many celebs, The Batman star took to social media following the Oscars to show off her outfits for the evening.

However, Kravitz couldn't help but take the opportunity to shade Smith while captioning two of her Instagram posts.

In the first post, showing off her first dress from the Oscars red carpet, she wrote: "here's a picture of my dress at the award show where we are apparently assaulting people on stage now."

In the second post, showcasing her gown from the Vanity Fair afterparty, Kravitz doubled down, writing: "and here is a picture of my dress at the party after the award show -where we are apparently screaming profanities and assaulting people on stage now."

As of this writing, the posts have received a combined 1.5 million+ 'likes' from Instagram users. Additionally, it would appear as if the captions have caused a stir of their own, as Kravitz is now trending on Twitter:

Many of these tweets come from Twitter users disagreeing with Kravitz's comments, and dragging her for comments she reportedly made about Jaden Smith to V Magazine in 2013.

Whatever side you're own, social media is a divisive and ugly place right now.
