Chris Rock has finally broken his silence on the Will Smith Oscar slap
Rock then went on to address the Will Smith-slapped sized elephant in the room.
“How was your weekend?” he began which got a lot of laughter from the crowd.
He continued: “I don’t have a bunch of shit 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.”
An audience member then said: “Fuck Will Smith!”.
Rock, very professionally ignored the comment and began his hour-long set.
“I’m going to tell some jokes,” he said.
“It’s nice to just be out,” he added and then began his stand-up show.
