Chris Rock Says He's "Still Processing" the Oscars Incident
Chris Rock spoke out about the Oscars incident involving Will Smith on March 30 at his previously scheduled stand-up show. After Smith slapped him in the face during the ceremony on March 27, Rock was shocked, but made no official statements about what happened.
The comedian was greeted by a media frenzy outside of Boston’s Wilbur Theater, and the show was completely sold out. According to “Variety,” when Rock took the stage he said, “Whoa, OK!” After a lengthy standing ovation, he said, “Yo, let me do the show!”
“How was your weekend?” he asked, getting laughs from the crowd. Then he addressed the topic. He explained, “I don’t have a bunch of sh*t about what happened, so if you came to hear that, I have a whole show I wrote before this weekend. I’m still kind of processing what happened. So, at some point I’ll talk about that shit. And it will be serious and funny.”
