After Rock, 58, made a G.I. Jane joke about his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, who has alopecia, Smith, 54, slapped Rock at the Academy Awards.

Before assaulting him on stage, the French Prince star initially yelled from the crowd, “keep my wife’s name out of your f***ing mouth.” In the tennis biopic King Richard, Smith went on to win an Oscar for Best Actor for his role as Richard Williams, the father of Venus and Serena Williams.

Rock is said to have addressed the sage in his stand-up special Selective Outrage, even though the controversy has been quiet for some time.

According to the New York Post, he told the audience at one of the rehearsals that he had “rooted for Will Smith” all his life.He then landed a killer crack by mentioning that he had hate-watched the star’s movie, Emancipation, in which he played an escaped slave who was tortured.

He stated, “People who are aware, know that s*** had nothing to do with me.”

He is considerably larger than I am. I will never remove my shirt for the camera. Will portrayed Ali. I portrayed Pookie in “New Jack City” (1991).”

Deadline reports that Rock once joked with Dave Chappelle at London’s O2 Arena, “He played Ali!” Even playing Floyd Mayweather is beyond me.The comment, like the Oscars slap, has divided opinion, with dozens of Twitter users discussing the joke.

“While watching Emancipation, Chris Rock “joked” about watching Will Smith get whipped.One person stated, “Almost a full year after he made fun of his wife’s illness.”

“Remind me why slapping was the worst option in this circumstance?”

Another person wrote: Chris truly stated, “I’m gonna make some damn money if I get slapped at the Oscars.” On the other hand, someone said, in response to those who said the comedian was “milking” it: He will undoubtedly tease and promote it. Additionally, he was beaten, so he is entitled to as much milk as he desires.”

A second voice added, ” People assumed and inferred that Will Smith had no regrets about that night after Will Smith posted a photo of himself holding his Oscar on Instagram about a week ago.

“Since Chris has not addressed it, he may do so at any time. Even those who say they won’t watch, many people will.”
