Chris Rock is sick of the blame game.
The comic on Friday appeared to reference having been slapped by the Oscar winner at this year’s Academy Awards — this time, just hours after Smith took to Facebook with a long-awaited apology for what quickly came to be known as The Slap Heard Round the World, CNN reports.
“Everybody is trying to a f—ing victim. If everybody claims to be a victim, then nobody will hear the real victims,” said the Brooklyn, New York-raised funnyman, according to the outlet. “Even me getting smacked by Suge Smith … I went to work the next day, I got kids.”
“Anyone who says words hurt has never been punched in the face,” Rock later told the audience.
