Chris RockAfter he speaks, he breaks his silence Will SmithHe slapped him onto the stage during 2022 Oscars.

After the award show’s March 27 stoppage, the presenter made a short gesture at Jada pinkett Smith‘s shaved head, joking, “Jada, I love you. G.I. Jane 2“I can’t believe it! The crack prompted Jada—who has been open about her alopecia diagnosis—to roll her eyes and Will to take the stage. 

Returning to his seat, post-slap, Will yelled to Chris, “Keep my wife’s name out your f–king mouth.”

Chris kept his cool on stage and quickly segued to the Best Documentary presentation, but now, he’s speaking out.

At the beginning of his comedy show in Boston on March 30, Chris jokingly asked the audience, “How was your weekend?” According to the audio from the show, published by Variety.

After a few laughs, he said that he didn’t know much about the incident, but that he had a show drafted before the weekend.
