Since Will Smith stormed on stage and slapped Chris Rock at Sunday night's academy awards, it's been all anyone and everyone can talk about.

The Slap - also known as "slap-gate", or "the slap heard around the world" - has plunged Smith and Rock into a media storm, been commented on by dozens of celebs, and may even mean disciplinary proceedings from the Academy.

However, there is one person who's refusing to weigh in on the debate - Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe.

The star was asked for his take on the scandalous Oscars ceremony during an appearance on a UK morning show on Thursday, where he was promoting his new movie, The Lost City. But rather than giving an opinion on who was in the right and who was in the wrong, Radcliffe said he was sick of hearing the conversation.

When asked by presenter Susanna Reid if he saw the moment unfold, the former child star made it clear that he had heard enough.

"I’m just so already dramatically bored of hearing people’s opinions about it that I just don’t want to be another opinion adding to it," he told Good Morning Britain hosts Reid and Ben Shephard.

Radcliffe did give his take on what it's like getting roasted at an award show, saying the best reaction was just to "keep smiling and laughing".

"When you’re going on stuff as a kid you’re never quite sure if the joke’s with you or you’re the butt of the joke. So you sort of have a mode of just being like 'I’ll just keep smiling and laughing and maybe it’ll end soon,'" he said.

Smiling and laughing certainly wasn't the approach Smith took on Sunday night when Rock poked fun at his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith.

The comedian was preparing to hand out the Best Documentary Oscar when he made a gag about Pinkett Smith's closely shaved head, saying that she could appear in the next GI Jane movie. Pinkett Smith - who suffers from alopecia - rolled her eyes at the joke, clearly unamused. Moments later, her husband could be seen charging on stage and slapping Rock around the face.

After Smith had returned to his seat, Rock tried to diffuse the situation and laugh it off. But the actor wouldn't let it go, and yelled from the audience: "Keep my wife's name out of your f***ing mouth."

The jaw-dropping moment - which Smith has since apologized for - was broadcast live around the world.
