After his Oscar slap, Chris Rock ignores Will Smith’s public apology



Chris Rock spoke again on stage about the slap of Will Smith, after the actor's public apology.

The most famous slap of the year has not finished talking about it. This Friday, July 29, four months after slapping Chris Rock at the Oscars, Will Smith tried to apologize.

The same day, the comedian was on stage for his world tour Chris Rock Ego Death. He only addressed the incident succinctly, as People reveals here. “If everyone claims to be a victim, then no one will hear from the real victims,” he began. “Even if I got slammed by Suge Smith … I went to work the next day, I have children,” continues the comedian. Suge Smith's nickname is said to be a reference to Marion Suge Knight, a former record label boss known for his aggressive behavior. He is currently serving a 28-year prison sentence for killing a man in 2015. After this equivocal comparison, Chris Rock concluded: “Whoever says words hurt has never been punched in the face”.

Hours earlier, Will Smith had broken his silence in a five-minute, 44-second video posted on his official YouTube page.

“Over the past few months, I have been thinking and working on myself a lot. You asked a lot of fair questions that I wanted to take the time to answer,” the screen read. "Why didn't you apologize to Chris in your acceptance speech?" read Will Smith. “I was in the fog at that time, he replied. It was all blurry". He said he contacted Chris Rock, but "the response was that he wasn't ready to talk." According to Will Smith, Chris Rock told him he would contact him when he was ready to do so.

"So I'll tell you, Chris, I apologize to you,"  Will Smith said in the video, directly to the camera. “My behavior was unacceptable. And I'm here when you're ready to talk".
