American stand-up comedian Chris Rock has finally addressed Will Smith’s shocking slap on stage at the 2022 Oscars.
During a show in Boston at the Wilbur Theater, the comedian addressed the issue, by asking his audience, “How was your weekend?”
“I don’t have a bunch of s— about what happened,” “I had like a whole show I wrote before this weekend. I’m kinda processing what happened. So at some point, I’ll talk about that s—.”
At the Oscars, Rock was presenting the award for best documentary when Smith came on stage and smacked him after making a joke about Jada Pinkett Smith’s hair.
As he went back to his seat, Smith shouted, “Keep my wife’s name out of your f—— mouth,” twice.
Smith has since apologized to the Academy for his actions, but the Academy announced on Wednesday that he will face disciplinary action against Smith “for violations of the Academy’s Standards of Conduct, including inappropriate physical contact, abusive or threatening behaviour, and compromising the integrity of the Academy.”
