Chris Rock Made a Joke About Being “Smacked by Suge Smith” Following Will Smith’s Apologetic Clip!
Chris Rock has yet to express how he feels about Will Smith slapping him, but he continues to make jokes about the incident.
The comedian performed in Atlanta on Friday night as part of his “Chris Rock Ego Death World Tour,” hours after Smith recorded a nearly six-minute video apologizing for hitting Rock at the Oscars in March.
In comedy gigs in the months since Rock has made subtle references to the slap, but he has not addressed it publicly at length. Friday’s performance was characterized by the same method.
“Everyone is attempting to be a victim. If everyone claims to be a victim, no one will listen to the actual victims “Rock stated. “Even though I was struck by Suge Smith… The next day, I went to work and got kids.”
Later, he joked, “Anyone who claims that words are painful has never been hit in the face.”
Smith attacked the stage and struck Rock after he made a joke about his alopecia-stricken wife Jada Pinkett Smith’s haircut.
In the video released to his social media platforms, Smith begins with an on-screen message: “Over the past few months, I’ve done a great deal of contemplation and personal work… I’d want to take some time to respond to the many valid questions you’ve posed “It is readable.
Smith sighs and then discusses an altercation that garnered worldwide attention and damaged his reputation.
He explains why he did not apologize to Rock during his victory speech for “King Richard best “‘s actor Oscar.
“At that time, I was clouded,” he recalls. It is all hazy. Smith states that he has attempted to contact Rock, but the latter has stated he is not ready to speak and will reach out when he is.
“So I will say to Chris that I apologize. My conduct was inappropriate, and I am available whenever you’re ready to speak.”
Smith also apologized to Rock’s family, including his mother, family, and brother Tony, who starred in the Smiths’ 2007 sitcom “All of Us.”
Smith states, “Our relationship was fantastic.” “Tony Rock was my man, and I believe this loss is irreversible.”
In addition, Smith apologizes to his wife, their children, and fellow Academy Award nominees.
“My primary phobia is disappointing others,” he says. It stings when I let others down, which I detest. Smith said in a statement to his supporters that he is “dedicated to bringing light, love, and happiness to the globe.”
“If you persevere, I promise that we may become friends again,” he concludes. The Academy has punished Smith by prohibiting his attendance at the Oscars for the next decade.
In March, Smith again apologized on Instagram, calling his behavior “unacceptable and unjustifiable.”
Will Smith, Gamer Guy, Disables Direct Messages on Twitter After (Again) Being Confused with the Actor
Once again, the Twitterverse has targeted the incorrect Will Smith. Will Smith, the famous actor who slapped Chris Rock at this year’s Oscars, delivered a public apology for his conduct at the ceremony on Friday, saying that Rock is “not ready to discuss.”
As has often occurred over the years, the owner of the verified Twitter account @willsmith prepared for a new barrage of attacks, attaboys, hot takes, and other misdirected remarks (even though his Twitter profile pic is of a white guy with a ginger beard).
Will Smith does not have an official Twitter account; he published his apology video on YouTube and Instagram on Friday.
The Twitter handle @willsmith belongs to a man with the same name who is a podcaster and public relations representative for independent game developer Stray Bombay.
On Friday, game-industry Will Smith attempted to clarify the situation once more — likely in vain — and stated he had to disable direct messages on Twitter due to what are presumed to be dozens of insulting texts sent to notthatwillsmith (as he points out in his bio).
“I want to make it perfectly clear that I am not apologizing for anything. Also, I had to close my direct messages,” tweeted the gamer Will Smith.
The Case of the Mistake Will Smith reached its prior height in March, during the 94th Academy Awards, when the actor Will Smith smacked Rock, who had made a joke about Jada Pinkett Smith, on live television.
Following the smack, @willsmith tweeted, “Real talk, I’m not the person with whom you’re upset/pleased.
