Chris Rock spoke at length about Will Smith during his new live comedy special on Netflix. Rock, who was infamously slapped by Smith during the Oscars, touched on mostly that incident during his show in Baltimore.
The post Chris Rock Speaks At Length About Will Smith Slap In New Comedy Special, The Internet Has Mixed Response appeared first on Blavity.
The comedian blasted Smith’s marriage, reminding the audience about the interview where the couple talked about Jada’s affair.
“Suge Smith [slapped me],” Rock joked. “I got smacked at the f***ing Oscars by this motherf***er. And people are like “Did it hurt?” It still hurts. I got Summertime ringing in my ear f***ing drums. But I’m not a victim, you will never see me on Oprah or Gayle crying you will never see it, like, ‘I couldn’t believe it and I love Men in Black.’ No, it’s never going to happen… But Will Smith practices selective outrage because everyone that knows what happened, everybody that really knows, knows I had nothing to do with that s**t. I didn’t have any entanglements. His wife was f***ing her son’s friend.”

The 58-year-old star said he wouldn’t normally “talk about this s**t.” But apparently he couldn’t help himself after seeing the couple’s private matter on the internet.
“For some reason these n***as put that s**t on the Internet,” he said. “I have no idea why two talented people would do something that f***ing low down. What the f**k? We’ve all been cheated on, everybody in here has been cheated on. None of us have been interviewed by the person that cheated on us on television, like ‘Hey, I was sucking somebody else’s d**k, how did that make you feel?’ Why the f**k would you do that s**t?”
Rock’s jokes received mixed reactions on social media.
The most Chris Rock thing about all of this is him screaming that you don’t fight in front of white people but not even considering what it means to make jokes about a BW and her hair in front of white people

So Chris Rock’s weak ass decided to go in on Meghan, Duchess if Sussex and kept up his already 20+ years of attacking Jada.
Continuing his cooning trend of attacking Black (biracial) women.

Chris Rock chose to do his standup in my hometown of Baltimore – a city where he has absolutely no connections – when he could’ve easily sold out in his hometown of NYC.
Baltimore is also Jada Pinkett Smiths hometown!
Ya’ll keep thinking it’s just jokes. 😐#ChrisRock

Rock still claims to be innocent in the whole ordeal.
“Everybody called him a b***h. And who is he hitting? Me, a n***a he knows he can be beat. That is some b***h a** s**t…,” Rock said. “I have rooted for Will Smith my whole life and now I watch Emancipation just to see him get whooped… A lot of people are like ‘Chris why didn’t you do nothing back?’ Because I got parents that’s why, because I was raised. And you know what my parents taught me? Don’t fight in front of white people.”
According to CNN, the Chris Rock: Selective Outrage special also touched on several other topics, including addiction, abortion, racism in America, the Duchess of Sussex, the Kardashian family and “wokeness.”
