The entertainment world wasn't the only one shaken up by Will Smith's Oscars slap on Sunday night -- notable sports figures, including Deion Sanders and Patrick Mahomes' wife, also couldn't believe what they saw.
Just minutes after Will smacked Chris Rock on stage at the Academy Awards over a joke the comedian made about Jada Pinkett Smith ... Sanders commended Rock for taking the blow.
"Chris took it like a STANDUP GUY LITERALLY!!! WOW WOW WOW!" Sanders said on Twitter, before adding, "Lord help us please help us Love each other especially in front of company."
Brittany Mahomes, meanwhile, chastised Smith for letting his anger turn into physical violence.
"You. Don’t. Slap. Someone," the Kansas City star quarterback's wife wrote on Twitter.
Others in the sports world commented on Will as well ... with Steph Curry even cracking a joke on social media over it.
The Golden State Warriors point guard made the quip while praising the Stanford women's basketball team for its big victory on Sunday night.
