Chris Rock made his first statement since the drama at the Oscars.
While Chris was on stage, Will walked up to him and slapped him. During Chris’s comedy show, he spoke on the matter. He said he’s “still kind of processing what happened” that night. Deadline Chris said he plans on talking about it at a later time.
Will was seemingly upset over a joke Chris made, which prompted Will to walk on stage and smack Chris across the face. The assault came after Chris made a joke that he was looking forward to a sequel to “G.I. Jane,” which was ultimately a jab at Jada Pinkett-Smith’s shaved head. When Will sat back down, he shouted to Chris,“keep my wife’s name out of your f*** mouth.”
Will also won his first Oscar for Best Actor in ‘King Richard.’ When he accepted his speech, he delivered a tearful apology to the academy, and the following day, he wrote an apology to Chris via a social media post. Jada also seemingly spoke out, and Will plans on addressing the matter more on his wife’s show, Red Table Talk.
