Dave Chappelle and Chris Rock took to the British stage to weigh in on Will Smith’s infamous slap at the Oscars this year.
Here’s everything you need to know.
Chris Rock calls Will Smith ‘bad’
Chris Rock is currently touring the UK with Dave Chappelle. However, the pair spoke about the Oscars’ infamous slapstick during a recent sell-out at Liverpool’s M&S Arena.
Moreover, the 57-year-old comedian who has been trying to keep quiet about the incident since then broke his silence on Thursday night.
Chappelle probed Rock by asking, ‘Was that bad?’
Rock responded with ‘That’s right … the motherfucker beat me for a joke. Best joke I ever told.’
However, Chappelle said, ‘Will acted like a perfect man for 30 years. He tore off his mask and showed us that he’s just as bad as the rest of us.’
In addition, he added, ‘Whatever the results … I hope he doesn’t put his mask back on and let his face breathe. I see myself in both people.’
The happy salesman cites a few more anecdotes about the Men In Black actor’s upbringing in West Philadelphia.
He added, ‘A lot of people forget who Will Smith is. Then 10 minutes before he was about to get the biggest award… he was ready to come back to Philadelphia.’
There’s also the story of the Oscars patch
In case you didn’t know, Will Smith became a hot topic around the world when he slapped Chris Rock at the 2022 Academy Awards in March.
The attack came after Rock, who also hosted the prestigious awards, joked about Smith’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith’s hair loss.
Although, Jada rolled her eyes when Rock called her ‘GI Jane’, Smith didn’t hold back as she ran on stage and applauded the Grown-Ups star.
However, the Independence Day star went on to bag Best Actor for his performance as King Richard later that evening.
Meanwhile, Smith issued a public apology for his actions the next day.
He wrote in the message, ‘I stepped out of line and I made a mistake.’
She added, ‘I’m ashamed, my actions didn’t represent the person I wanted to be. There is no place for violence in a world of love and kindness.’
