will smith slaps chris rock

Chris Rock has opened about getting slapped by Will Smith at the 2022 Oscars ceremony.

During an appearance at the Fox Theatre in Atlanta on Friday night, the 57-year-old comedian discussed how he tried to move past the incident and compared the 53-year-old actor to the currently incarcerated hip-hop mogul Suge Knight.

His appearance took place just hours after the King Richard star apologized for his actions in a video that was shared to his Instagram account.

Rock said via CNN that ‘everybody is trying to be a f***ing victim. If everybody claims to be a victim, then nobody will hear the real victims.’

Rock also quipped: ‘Anyone who says words hurt has never been punched in the face.’Chris Rock
