Will Smith is dealing with the fallout from slapping Chris Rock onstage. Fans and celebrities are constantly criticizing him and roasting him. Will was roasted on Saturday Night Live recently, and now Trevor roasted him in his Grammy monologue.

Trevor Noah learned a thing or two from last weekend’s Oscars and made sure to keep that in mind while hosting the 2022 Grammy Awards. The Daily Show host kicked off the ceremony by revealing how many big names were in attendance on Sunday, including Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, and Billie Eilish, before subtly criticizing Will Smith for his antics at the Academy Awards.

“We’re gonna be keeping people’s names out of our mouths,” Noah joked to the audience, referring to Smith’s now-famous quote to presenter Chris Rock after the stand-up comedian made a joke about Smith’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, at the Oscars.

Smith walked onstage after Rock’s G.I. Jane comment, slapped the comedian, and yelled, “Keep my wife’s name out of your f—ing mouth!” In his public apology, Smith explained that the joke hit too close to home, drawing attention to his wife’s struggles with alopecia and hair loss while expressing regret for his actions.


Rock, for his part, has chosen to keep his thoughts private for the time being. He did, however, reveal that the slap would be addressed one day. “I’m still kind of processing what happened, so at some point I’ll talk about that,” the Spiral: From the Book of Saw star said during a sold-out comedy show in Boston. “And it’ll be serious and it’ll be funny, but right now I’m going to tell some jokes.”

Let’s see when and how Will manages to get out of this situation. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Thirsty.
