Chris Rock breaks silence on Will Smith's Oscars slap
On Wednesday night, the comedian shorty touched on the controversial moment that took place at the 94th Academy Awards.
According to People, while performing at The Wilbur in Boston, Rock greeted his audience, "What's up, Boston?" sarcastically asking, "How was your weekend?"
Rock then proceeded to tell fans, "I'm still processing what happened," and shared that he would probably talk about what happened at some point in the future.
An audience member told People the Grown Ups star had written a whole show full of jokes for the show and never mentioned Smith's name throughout the set.
"Except for a couple weird things, life is pretty good right now," the 57-year-old told the audience later in his routine.
The Oscar-winner struck the Head of State actor after the latter made jokes about Jada Pinkett-Smith's appearance, comparing her Demi Moore's shaved head in the movie, G.I. Jane – which made Pinkett-Smith visibly uncomfortable.
After Will hit Rock, he was later seen shouting to a stunned Rock, "Keep my wife's name out of your f**king mouth."
Though Rock declined to press charges against the King Richard star, the Academy condemned Will's action and confirmed that there will be a formal review around the incident.
