The joke that caused Will Smith to slap him at the 2022 Oscars, a contentious incident that will go down in history as the “slap heard ’round the world,” seemed to have been handled simply by Chris Rock.
Rock reportedly dug deep into the gravity of the slap and the savagery of the joke during his and Dave Chappelle’s Friday night performance at Liverpool’s M&S Bank Arena. This is according to the comedian.
“Did that s**t hurt? Goddamn right,” Rock said. “The motherf***er hit me over a bulls**t joke, the most pleasant joke I at any point told!”
The disputable episode went down at the 94th yearly Academy Awards recently after Rock made that big appearance to introduce an Oscar. While introducing, the Saturday Night Live alum joked, “Jada, I love ya. G.I. Jane 2, can hardly hold on to see it,” referring to her shaved head. In no time, Smith strolled in front of an audience and hit Rock with an open hand, on the face.
The Girls Trip entertainer has been vocal about her battles with alopecia, an immune system problem which causes bare spots and going bald. In the wake of conveying the slap, Smith got back to his seat and hollered, “Avoid my significant other’s name with regard to your f**king mouth.”
Smith has since apologized multiple times – – first, after he acknowledged his Oscar for his job in King Richard, on the other hand in an Instagram post before his general acknowledgment video last month.
A source told ET that Rock has no designs to contact the entertainer. The source accepts that the planning of the expression of remorse is something else for Will’s wellbeing. “He wants the public’s pardoning, not Chris,” the source added.

Meanwhile, it seems Rock, who declined a plunk down interview with Oprah Winfrey following the slap, isn’t easing up with regards to going after Smith at whatever point he makes that big appearance. He’s done so various times, including last month when he gave Smith another epithet.
As per different reports, Rock made reference to the scandalous Death Row Records pioneer, Marion “Suge” Knight, during his set in Atlanta as a feature of the Ego Death World Tour. Rock purportedly alluded to Smith as “Suge Smith” referring to the record name proprietor who is known for his set of experiences of brutality.
“Everyone is attempting to be a f**king casualty,” he said. “On the off chance that everyone professes to be a casualty, no one will hear the genuine casualties. Indeed, even me getting smacked by Suge Smith … I went to work the following day. I got kids.”
Rock likewise made a joke to Smith’s detriment during his Madison Square Garden show.
As far as it matters for him, Chappelle likewise tended to Smith during the UK show, it Smith’s slap a “extremely bizarre decision.” Chappelle additionally purportedly blamed Smith for doing “an impression of an ideal individual for a long time,” and that he trusts Smith “doesn’t return that veil on to call.”
Most would agree Rock and Chappelle will have more to say regarding the subject as their stand-up visit hits O2 Arena in London on Saturday night.
