AceShowbiz - Chris Rock addressed Will Smith's Oscars slap in his eagerly awaited Netflix special that streamed live on Saturday night, March 4. At one point during "Chris Rock: Selective Outrage", the comic talked about how it felt to be slapped by the Oscar-winning actor. "You know what people say, they say, 'words hurt,' " he said early in the set. "Anybody that say words hurt has never been punched in the face."
The 58-year-old told his audience that he'll try not to "trigger" anyone. However, toward the end of the show, he unloaded on Will again for slapping him in the face at last year's Academy Awards. "I got smacked at the f**king Oscars by this mother**ker. And people are like, 'Did it hurt?' It still hurts!" Chris said.
The "Grown Ups" star pointed out his and Will's size difference, saying that Will played Muhammad Ali while he played Pookie in "New Jack City". "Yes it hurt. It still hurts. I got 'Summertime' ringing in my ears. My f**king drums bleed," so he claimed.
He then made a reference to Jada Pinkett Smith's entanglement with August Alsina. He joked that Will practices "selective outrage" by slapping him instead of the singer, who had an affair with his wife. "Everyone called Will a b***h, " for putting up with Jada's affair, "but I'm the one he hit," he said. "A n***a knows he can beat. That is some b***h a** s**t."
He also mocked the couple for putting "this s**t on the Internet," referring to the time Jada interviewed Will about the matter on "Red Table Talk". "I have no idea why two talented people would do something that low down," Chris said. "We've all been cheated on. None of us have been interviewed by the person that cheated on us on television."
Despite the pain from the slap, Chris stressed, "But I'm not a victim, baby. You'll never see me on Oprah or Gayle, crying. You will never see it. Never gonna happen." He ended the show by responding to people who asked him why he didn't fight back at the time. "Because I got parents. Because I was raised. And you know what my parents taught me? Don't fight in front of white people," he said before signing off.
Earlier in the show, Chris said he did not try to make another rapper angry, after joking about Beyonce Knowles and Jay-Z. Highlighting the power of beauty, he said that Bey could've still married Jay-Z if she worked at Burger King, but Jigga would've not had a chance to marry Bey if he's not a billionaire he is today. "By the way, that was not a Jay-Z diss. I do not need another rapper mad at me, okay," he claimed.
