Will Smith finally apologizes to Chris Rock for his behavior at the 94th Academy Awards (Oscars) only to be dissed by Chris Rock.
It’s been days since Will Smith apologized to his fans and comedian Chris Rock for slapping him at the Oscars earlier this year and Chris Rock finally acknowledged the same.
If you need a refresher, during the Oscars which were held on 27th March this year Chris Rock made a joke about Jada Pinkett Smith (Will Smith’s wife) on her decision to shave her head. He said, “Jada can’t wait for GI Jane 2” referring to the 1997 movie GI Jane starring Demi Moore where she had shaved her head for the role.
Jada had revealed on her talk show that she decided to shave her head because she was diagnosed with alopecia areata, an autoimmune disorder. Following this joke made by Chris Will Smith got on the stage to slap the comedian.
Coming back to the present, while performing in the UK, Chris Rock during a weekend show gave a response to the apology video by calling it a “f*** your hostage video.” Chris also talked about Will’s award-winning performance in Ali which was released in 2001. He said “yea that s*** hurt. He played Ali. I can’t even play Floyd Mayweather.”
Last week while performing, Chris also said that Will Smith slapped him for the “nicest joke he has ever said.”
Well looks like Chris Rock is in no mood to make amends and rightfully so. Owing to this incident, Will Smith is banned from the Academy Awards for 10 years even after issuing a public apology.
Should Chris Rock forgive Will Smith? Not so soon at least.
