Is Chris Rock finally speaking up about Will Smith slapping him at the Oscars in 2022? For those who don’t know, Smith punched Rock across the face at the 94th Academy Awards when the actor joked about Jada Pinkett Smith’s hair loss problem.
Meanwhile, everyone was outraged, including the Academy, which has now barred Will from attending the awards event for the next ten years.
Since then, the King Richard actor has apologized to Chris, and his wife, Jada, has spoken out about the situation.
According to prior reports, the actress stated that she did not want Will to smack Rock. Netizens were not satisfied with her response and labeled her manipulative.
After almost a month since the Oscars 2022, Chris Rock appears to have finally spoken out about Will Smith slapping him. He previously stated that he needed more time to process what had occurred. “I’m alright,” the Madagascar star stated, according to WJZ-TV, during one of his sold-out gigs at Baltimore’s Lyric Performing Arts Center on Friday.
“Healed from the nicks and bruises…for the most part,” Chris Rock added. The actor, however, did not go on to say anything else about it and continued with his show.
Chris Rock’s mother very upset with the incident
Meanwhile, Chris Rock’s mother, Rosalie Rock, has a few words for him. She is outraged by the occurrence, claiming that if someone hurts a child, they also injure her.
In the midst of it all, Jada Pinkett Smith stated the family is “really healing.” The next thing we know, the actor from Men in Black is on his way to India.
The actor is not visiting the country for the first time.
The reason for Will Smith’s visit has been speculated by a number of people. According to one source, he is in India to speak with Sadhguru, the spiritual leader, following the issue surrounding him and Chris Rock.
