One year after receiving a slap from Will Smith at the Oscars, the American comedian Chris Rock received his revenge on Saturday, March 4, 2023, in a monologue released by Netflix.
In March 2022, Smith took the stage at the Oscars as a comedian after he made a joke about the short hair of a woman, Hollywood star Jada Pinkett Smith, who suffers from alopecia.
A few minutes later, Will Smith received the Oscar for Best Actor for “The Williams Method”. He later apologized to Petra, but the Oscars (which are held on April 12 this year) have been banned for a decade.
The comedian has not filed any charges and has been mostly silent on the matter until now.
And this Saturday, at the Baltimore show. Chris Rock was fired after accusing Smith of employing “selective abuse.”asserting that the actor was suffering because his wife had cheated on him.
“Will Smith is committing a selective crime,” Chris Rock said in a monologue broadcast live on Netflix.
‘Please,’ said he, ‘did it hurt?’ However, this hurts. Will Smith is a little older than me. Will Smith played Muhammad Ali in the movie. Do you think I have heard of that role? he said.
The comedian also explains to Smith after his wife’s podcast an episode in which the couple discussed the matter and how it had affected him.
“Why did he do this?” surprised the comedian, who later insulted Smith’s podcast and called his wife a “dog” and a “predator.”
He added that he tried to offer comfort to Smith after that infidelity became public.
Chris Rock revealed that Pinkett Smith’s enmity towards him arose a few years ago, when she asked him to boycott the Oscars because her husband was not nominated for the 2015 film “The Hidden Truth” (Concussion).
“She said a grown man should resign from his job because her husband wasn’t nominated for ‘Concussion.’ So (Smith) knows me,” she joked.
“What the hell? Am I joking about it? Who gives a shit? That’s right; it starts, I finish. No one bothers,” he noted.
Rock said that, before the slap, he always loved Fabrum, first as a rapper, then as an actor.
“A great employee. I’ve taken Will Smith all my life.“, but now supports the slave master who beats Smith’s character in the last film, “Emancipation.”
