Chris Rock says he hasn't 'talked to anyone' about being slapped by Will Smith at the Oscars
Chris Rockgave his first public comments on Wednesday about being slapped by Will Smithat the Oscars.
- Rock revealed while doing stand-up in Boston that he hasn't "talked to anyone" about the incident.
Chris Rock made his first public comments after being slapped by Will Smith at the Oscars while doing a stand-up set at The Wilbur in Boston Wednesday night.
Though the comic didn't go into great detail about his feelings on the matter — he even said in the earlier show that he's "still processing what happened," — during the later, 10 p.m. show, he did share a small update and seemingly corrected a prior report.
"I haven't talked to anyone, despite what you heard," Rock told the audience, according to People.
This likely means he hasn't spoken to Smith, despite Diddy having said after the Oscars that the two had met up after the show.
"That's not a problem. That's over. I can confirm that," Diddy told Page Six.
On Monday, Smith released an apology statement, describing his behavior at the awards show as "unacceptable and inexcusable."
"Jokes at my expense are a part of the job, but a joke about Jada's medical condition was too much for me to bear and I reacted emotionally," Smith said in the statement. "I would like to publicly apologize to you, Chris. I was out of line and I was wrong."
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, which puts on the Oscars, has begun "disciplinary proceedings" against Smith and revealed on Wednesday that it asked Smith to leave Sunday's Oscars ceremony after slapping Rock but the actor refused.
