And recently some clips from Chris Rock’s upcoming Netflix special Selective Outrage, showed the Comedian making light of the incident. People are going to see Rock slap back Smith with his fun and comedic take on the whole situation. Expressing how he always supported the actor, the comedian says,

“The other day, I watched ‘Emancipation’ just so I could watch him getting whipped.” 

For those who might not know, Emancipation is a 2022 flick starring Smith. He plays the role of an enslaved man in 1860s Louisiana. As the character gets tortured physically, Rock joked about hate-watching the flick. Aside from that, the Comedian will be taking various digs at the Suicide Squad star and the slap gate incident itself. Furthermore, he also made another joke concerning Smith at London’s O2 arena. According to Deadline, Rock said,

 “He played Ali! I can’t even play Floyd Mayweather.”

The comedian seems to have found a harmless way to slap back at someone who slapped him before a huge audience.

Undoubtedly, Will Smith and Chris Rock’s slapping incident was the highlight of last year’s Oscar award function. For that unversed, if there is any, Rock who had been hosting the show made various jokes as he is Comedian. However one of the jokes failed to land correctly. While talking about Jada Pinkett Smith, the Comedian pointed out her bald head in a manner that poked fun at it. This turned out to be a bad spot for Rock; what he seemed to have been unaware of was that the Girls Trip star suffers from Alopecia. It is a medical condition resulting in total loss of hair from a region. Therefore taking it as a disrespectful act, the After Earth actor ended up slapping Rock on stage. He later apologized for his heat-of-the-moment reaction.
