Months after slapping Chris Rock on stage at the Oscars, Will Smith broke his silence on the televised incident via an apology video. In the clip, Smith formally apologized for what transpired while also addressing the “irreparable” damage done to his relationship with Rock’s brother, Tony. After the video was posted, Chris appeared to respond via a stand-up act done a few weeks ago but didn’t address the apology directly. However, at a recent event, the comic addressed it in a blunt manner.
Chris Rock appeared alongside Dave Chappelle at the O2 Arena in London this weekend, where the two reflected on their past experiences. Rock didn’t spend too much time talking about his on-stage encounter with the King Richard star, according to Deadline. So when it came to the latter’s viral apology video, Rock kept things short – and an f-bomb was involved:
Fuck your hostage video.
Needless to say, the actor did not mince words on the matter. These comments seem to fall in line with sentiments that the Spiral star shared during a comedy show in Atlanta last month. The comedian declared that “everybody is trying to be a fucking victim” and that as a result, “nobody will hear the real victims.” In that same set, he also mentioned getting “smacked by Suge Smith.”
