Chris Rock Talks About Will Smith’s Slap For The First Time

The famous comedian’s first voiceover of Will Smith’s slap to host Chris Rock at the Oscars last year. Details are here!

Perhaps one of the most iconic moments in Oscar history was last year when Will Smith slapped Rock in front of millions of live audiences. Will Smith, who remained silent after the incident, was criticized and apologized to Chris Rock.

Although almost a year has passed since the incident, Rock, who hardly talked about what happened, evaluated the legendary slap with suggestive words in his stand-up show, which he published exclusively for Netflix.

Chris Rock: “Yeah, It Hurts!”

It all started when Oscar Awards host Rock made a joke about Will Smith’s wife, Jada Smith’s hairstyle. Will Smith, who saw that Jada’s condition worsened after getting sick and had to shave her hair after the joke, went on stage and slapped Chris and cursed.

Despite all this, the Oscar Awards night was in full swing, and even Will Smith returned home with the Best Actor award for his role in King Richard. Will Smith, who issued an apology message after the backlash on social media, spoke about the incident regularly throughout the year and even made fun of what happened at certain times, unlike Rock.

Chris Rock

Famous comedian Chris Rock spoke for the first time about the event on the Netflix program, which was broadcast recently. Stating that the most curious thing was the severity of the slap, Rock said, “Yes, it hurt!” answered the questions.

On the other hand, he took the stage and said, “I’ll try to put on a show tonight without offending anyone. Because you never know who might be triggered.” said Chris Rock, focusing on selective anger and cancellation culture, which are the prominent concepts of recent years.

The Netflix exclusive series is expected to premiere on March 13, a week before this year’s Oscar Awards.
