The Oscars Award ceremony this year became memorable for all the wrong reasons. This is because Will Smith shockingly slapped Chris Rock following a joke about Smith’s wife. Chris Rock also doesn’t see himself as the victim after the slap.
Chris Rock will also not forgive Will Smith after what he did and continues to address the slap even now. Rock even previously said that he wanted money to talk about it, which led to 50 Cent making an amusing joke about the situation.
Will Smith has been banned from attending the Oscars for the next 10 years. Smith even then made his way to India so he could go on a spiritual journey.
While speaking to Us Weekly during a recent comedy show, Chris Rock made it clear he is not a victim after the incident. He said that even though the slap “hurt,” he didn’t let it phase him.
“I’m not a victim. Yeah, that s**t hurt, motherf**ker,” he said. “I shook that s**t off and went to work the next day… I don’t go to the hospital for a papercut. Anyone who says ‘words hurt’ has never been punched in the face.”
Jada Pinkett Smith also said that she wished Will Smith did not end up slapping Chris Rock. Chris Roch has moved on to better things in life such as his relationship with Lake Bell. We hope such an incident never happens again either.
