Chris Rock sets Will Smith Oscar slap record: ‘I’m not a victim’

Chris Rock finally broke his silence about the slap he heard around the world: “Yeah, it hurts, mom – but I shook it and went to work the next day.”

After staying mostly silent for months, the comedian addressed his being attacked by Will Smith at the 2022 Academy Awards while leading stand-up shows in New York and New Jersey over the weekend.

“Anyone who says ‘words hurt’ has never been punched in the face,” said Rock, 57, while performing alongside Kevin Hart and Dave Chappelle at Madison Square Garden Saturday.

Also during the event, Hart brought live goats on stage and introduced them as “Will Smith”.

Us Magazine reported that Rock spoke during his set the next day at the PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel, New Jersey, during a brief stint in which he talked about being overly sensitive to people. “I’m not a victim, Motherf—-ker,” declared the “Grown Ups” star. “I don’t go to the hospital for paper cutting.”

It was the first time Rock had addressed the incident, which occurred at the 2022 Academy Awards in March, when Smith, who won Best Actor for “King Richard” later in the evening, hit rock after making the actor The comedian is bald.

The former rock band has remained largely silent on Best Smacktor’s fiasco, only mentioning it briefly on stage for the past couple of months.

“I’m fine, if anyone is wondering,” Rock said during a show in May at the Royal Albert Hall in the UK, according to The Times of London. “I have regained most of my hearing.”

He added that he still did not talk about the feud between him and Smith, 53.

People expect me to talk about bulls–t. I will not talk about it now. “I’ll get to it eventually — on Netflix,” he said with a laugh.

The comedian previously stated that he won’t talk about the slap until he sees a check with his name on it: “I’m fine. I have a full show, and I don’t talk about it until I get paid,” he told his audience during a comedy show at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio, California, last month. .

However, just a week before his appearance at the casino, the creator of “Everybody Hates Chris” told fans during a surprise visit to Comedy Cellar in New York City, “Lower your expectations. I’m not going to get into this–t.”

Meanwhile, Smith has remained silent on the matter, although comedian and friend Kevin Hart told “Entertainment Tonight” last night that actor Ali is in a better place since the accident.

“Will is apologizing,” said the comedian, “you know, he’s in a better place, of course, than he was looking for.” “People are human and as humans we make mistakes sometimes.”

He added, “So it’s not about talking about the past, it’s about acknowledging the present and doing your best to move forward.”
