On Saturday night, Chris Rock unleashed his emotions on the subject of Will Smith‘s Oscar controversy for the initial time in a public manner.
In the last moments of his Netflix stand-up special, “Selective Outrage”, the 58-year old comedian launched a storm of scathing criticism against 54 year old actor Will Smith and his wife Jada Pinkett Smith (aged 51), nearly one year after there was an infamous onstage altercation between them at the Academy Awards.
After more than an hour of riveting performance, the three-time Grammy Award winner briefly mentioned former rapper Suge Knight and his 28-year prison sentence following a 2018 plea of no contest to voluntary manslaughter.
“You all know what happened to me, getting smacked by Suge Smith,” he began. “Everybody knows! Everybody f—— knows! Yes, it happened. I got smacked. A year ago, I got slapped at the f—— Oscars by this motherf—— and people are like, ‘Did it hurt?’ It still hurts! I got ‘Summertime’ ringing in my ear! But I’m not a victim. You will never see me on Oprah or Gayle, crying.”
He continued, “No, it’s never gonna happen. No. F— that s—., I took that hit like Pacquiao motherf—–!”
To emphasize their physical disparities, Rock remarked that ‘Will Smith is much bigger than me; We certainly don’t share the same physique.’
“This guy does his movies with his shirt off!” Rock exclaimed. “You’ve never seen me do a movie with my shirt off. If I’m in a movie getting open-heart surgery, I got on a sweater. Will Smith played Muhammed Ali in a movie. You think I auditioned for that part? I played Pookie in ‘New Jack City.’ I played a piece of corn in “Pootie Tang”…even in animation, he’s bigger. I’m a zebra, he’s a shark.”
Rock name-checked the title of his special as he accused Smith of practicing “selective outrage” and referenced Jada’s “entanglements.”
“And for people who don’t know what everybody knows — Will Smith, his wife was f—— her son’s friend,” Rock said.
The comedian then laughed at Smith for his appearance on Jada’s Facebook Watch show “Red Table Talk”, where they scrutinized her fidelity.

“We all been cheated on. Everybody have been cheated on. None of us have ever been interviewed by the person that cheated on us on television,” he said. “She hurt him way more than he hurt me.”
“Everybody in the world called him a b—-,” he added. “I tried to call the motherf—– and give him my condolences; he ain’t pick up for me. Everybody called that man a b—-, f—— Charlamagne [tha God] called him a b—-, “The Breakfast Club” called him a b—– and “The View” and “The Talk,” and every rapper, they called him a b—-, his wife a predator, everybody called him a b—-. Everybody! Everybody! And who does he hit? Me!”
Will Smith playfully references Chris Rock’s Oscars slap during his new video! After Rock scolded Jada for advising him not to host the Academy Awards after Smith was snubbed for “Concussion,” Will alludes to it in a funny way.
“So did I do some jokes about it, who gives a f—?” he said. “That’s how it is. She starts it, I finish it. That’s what the f— happened. Nobody’s picking on this b—-. She started this s—.”
He reaffirmed that Jada had suggested he should “resign” due to her husband not receiving a nomination for “Concussion.”
“And then this n—- gives me a concussion,” he quipped.
Rock fondly remembered the admiration he had for Smith’s music and films, expressing that he “adored” him. “I’ve been a lifelong fan of Will Smith,” he said with enthusiasm. “And now I watch ‘Emancipation’ to witness his impressive performance.” The comedian was referring to Smith’s 2022 Apple+ movie in which he portrays a former slave.
At the conclusion of his performance, Rock elucidated why he hadn’t reacted with physical force after Smith smacked him.
“A lot of people go, ‘Chris, how come you didn’t do, nothing back?’ ‘How come he didn’t do nothing back that night?’ Because I’ve got parents. That’s why. Because I was raised.”
“You know what my parents taught me? Don’t fight in front of White people!”
Netflix’s pioneer streaming event, Rock’s special, took center stage at the Hippodrome Theatre in Baltimore, Maryland.
During the show, Dave Chappelle joked about a number of famous figures including Meghan Markle, the Kardashians, O.J. Simpson, Elon Musk, Snoop Dogg, Beyoncé, Doja Cat and Draymond Green. He touched on “wokeism,” “cancel culture,” transgenderism, abortion, politics and victimhood among other topics.
Netflix gave moviegoers the exciting news that they would not need to “wait seven seconds” for their desired viewing experience with their upcoming premiere of ‘Selective Outrage’ as detailed in a press release.
An unforgettable evening of laughter was ensured at the Comedy Store in Los Angeles, with an electrifying pre-show hosted by Malaysian comic Ronny Chieng. Arsenio Hall, Leslie Jones and J.B. Smoove all took to the stage for a series of sensational performances that set up Rock’s special act as the night’s crowning glory!
At the event, a selection of pre-recorded messages from renowned figures Amy Schumer, Paul McCartney, George Lopez, Adam Sandler and more were broadcasted. Afterward, Dana Carvey and David Spade hosted “The Show After the Show” with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Yvonne Orji, Smoove and Hall in attendance. This highly anticipated gathering was surely one to remember!
Precisely one year ago, a momentous event occurred live onstage during the 95th Academy Awards ceremony before an audience of millions across the world.
Smith, who was later awarded the best actor prize for his role in “King Richard,” was offended by a joke the comedian made about Jada.
“Jada, I love you. ‘G.I. Jane 2,’ can’t wait to see it, all right?” Rock had joked while presenting an award. He was referring to the 1997 film “G.I. Jane,” starring Demi Moore, who shaved her head to portray a fictional Navy SEAL candidate.
When “The Nutty Professor” star had the courage to take on a well-known comedian for making fun of her alopecia, an autoimmune disorder that leads to hair loss, Smith astonished everyone by walking onto the stage and slapping Rock in the face.
Leading up to the special, Dave Chappelle had been silent on the attack, aside from jokes he tested during his “Ego Death World Tour” stand-up appearances. A few of these were integrated into Saturday night’s show.
Shortly after the Oscars, Smith issued an apology to Chris Rock and others on Instagram. And in August, he released a five-minute video expressing his remorse towards Chris’ mother Rose Rock as well as all those affected by his actions.
Will Smith, the star of “Bad Boys For Life,” stated he contacted Rock to address their altercation but claimed that Rock was not prepared for a face-to-face discussion. Last week, in an Instagram video which appeared as if it were meant to be humorous, Smith alluded to the slap incident.
On March 12, the Academy Awards will be broadcasted and unfortunately, Smith won’t be in attendance due to his 10 year revocation caused by a slap.
