Chris Rock (finally) breaks the silence on the slap of Will Smith and the pain felt

It was the event of the 2022 Oscars ceremony: Will Smith’s inappropriate gesture, when he slapped comedian Chris Rock after he made fun of his wife Jada Pinkett Smith’s alopecia. If since the latter has spoken on the subject, and that certain relatives have made known the state in which the actor has since been, Chris Rock, he remained silent. Four months later, the comedian joked about this surreal scene, on stage.

On stage at the PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel he said: “Anyone who says words hurt has never been punched in the face.“Currently touring the United States alongside Kevin Hart, Chris Rock has let it be known that he was not a victim but confided in the pain he felt at the time of the slap.”This shit hurt me, motherfucker“, he let go. However, there was no question of benefiting from ITT for the actor, who assured that he had returned to work the next day. “I don’t go to the hospital for a paper cut“, he had fun in front of his audience.

Just after the Oscars, the comedian has indeed started his tour. And he hadn’t mentioned this episode since. “I don’t have much to say about what happened so if you came to hear this I have a whole show I wrote before this weekendhe had only confided during his first show, in Boston. I’m still digesting what happened. So at some point, I’ll talk about this shit. And it will be serious and funny.“It is now done.

Will Smith’s retirement in India

Since this sad event, Will Smith has meanwhile been banned from the Oscars ceremony, by decision of the organization. And this for ten years. “The list of those I have hurt is long and includes Chris, his family, many of my dear friends and loved ones, all in attendance and a global audience back home. I betrayed the trust of the Academy. I deprived the other nominees and winners of their opportunity to celebrate and be celebrated for their extraordinary work. My heart is brokensaid the actor and father of two children, Jaden and Willow Smith. Change takes time and I am committed to doing the work to ensure that I will never again allow violence to overtake reason..” He has since resigned from the Academy and treated himself to an initiatory trip to India.
