There are only a few days left until the 2023 Oscar gala is held again, which will continue to be marked by the shadow of the great controversy of the previous year 2022. Will Smith surprised comedian Chris Rock with a live slap during the ceremony, after he joked about the alopecia of Iada Pinkett Smith, the actor’s wife.

Although he apologized for the violent gestures, the situation did not prevent him from becoming one of the most important commentators and the Hollywood Academy also prevented the actor from attending the upcoming gala. Chris Rock, for his part, has avoided making much of a statement about the attack … until now.

During a screening of the show ‘Selective Outrage’, from Netflix, at the Baltimore Hippodrome theater, Rock spoke like never before about Smith’s slap. He went on a rampage, commenting that “you never know who you might hurt” or “anyone who says hurtful words is never punched in the face” until he finally decided to take it out on the audience.

“Now what happened. That bastard hit me at the Oscars and people are asking ‘didn’t he mean it?’ It still hurts,” said the comedian, who avoided playing the victim after the attack. You will never see Oprah or Gayle King cry. It’s never gonna happen. I took that punch like Pacquiao,” Petra said, according to NBC.

The actor also dared to mention Jada and Will’s relationship problems. At the time of their separation, the wife of the interpreter Methodist Williams had an affair with another man: “She did more damage to him than he did to me.”

As for the rumors that Chris Rock is one of those involved in this questionable relationship, the comedian stated that he is the only person with whom Smith has been physically violent: “And who hits? Who knows how to beat me.”

Even in a humorous tone, the comedian continued to talk about his problems with Will Smith, although he had long supported his artistic career. During the show, Petra admitted that she had seen Smith’s recent movie, ‘Into Freedom,’ only to see the actor get ‘shot’.

In this film, the Oscar winner for Best Actor plays a black slave who runs away to help his family.
