Chris, who had previously stated that he would not talk about the slap until he saw a blank check with his name on it because he was filling out all his showscontinued joking with the public about how he had felt when receiving the slap and made a funny reflection: “Anyone who says ‘words hurt’ has never been punched in the face“. The truth is that the comedian’s opinion about what happened has been changing over the weeks, since just a month ago, during his surprise appearance at the Comedy Cellar in New York, the creator of Everybody Hates Chris told his followers that lower their expectations because there was no way I was going to talk about it.

And although the humorist has said that he does not want to talk about it, Rock also addressed the subject during a show secret with Dave Chappelle a few days after the coup by Will Smith, jokingly telling his partner stand-up what the word “slap” was “too soft” to define the slap he received from the protagonist of The prince of Bel Air. We will have to wait for his next shows to find out if the comedian continues along this line or finally decides to tell how he felt during the Oscar ceremony. Of course, what the actor also avoided is that the police arrest Will Smith after his controversial altercation. In fact, according to Will Packer, one of the Hollywood Academy Awards producers, the agents were going to arrest him for assault.
