Dave Chappelle and Chris Rock took to the UK stage to weigh in on Will Smith’s infamous slap at this year’s Oscars.
Here’s everything you need to know.
Chris Rock Dubbed Will Smith ‘Ugly’
Chris Rock is currently on a UK tour with Dave Chappelle. However, the pair discussed the infamous Oscar slap during a recent sell-out gig at Liverpool’s M&S Arena.
Additionally, the 57-year-old comedian has since successfully managed to remain tight-lipped about the incident on Thursday night.
Chappelle probed Rock by asking, “Did it hurt?”
Rock responded, “Damn right…that scumbag punched me for a bull joke. Nicest joke I’ve ever told.’
However, Chappelle said, “Will gave the impression of a perfect person for 30 years. He tore off his mask and showed us that he was just as ugly as the rest of us.”
Additionally, he added, “Whatever the consequences… I hope he doesn’t put his mask back on and let his real face breathe. I see myself in both men.’
The merchant of fun then mentioned a few more sentences about the harsh upbringing of the actor Men In Black in West Philadelphia.
He joked: “A lot of people forget who Will Smith is. Then 10 minutes before he was supposed to win the biggest prize … he acted like he was back in Philadelphia.”
More about slapping the Oscars
In case you didn’t know, Will Smith became a hot topic around the world when he slapped Chris Rock at the Academy Awards in March 2022.
The assault happened after Rock, who was also presenting the prestigious awards, made a joke about Smith’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, because of her lack of hair.
Although Jada rolled her eyes when Rock called her ‘GI Jane’, Smith was having none of it as he stormed the stage and slammed the Grown-Ups star.
Regardless, the Independence Day star won best actor later that evening for his performance in King Richard.
Meanwhile, Smith publicly apologized for his actions the following day.
He wrote in the message: ‘I was off and wrong.’
He went on to claim: ‘I am embarrassed and my actions were not indicative of the man I want to be. There is no place for violence in a world of love and kindness.”
