Chris Rock Reacts After Will Smith's Apology: If everybody Claims To Be A Victim...

Comedian Chris Rock did not directly talk about Will Smith’s recent video apology but he indirectly addressed the notorious incident at the Oscars and Smith's excuses.

In a stand-up show in Atlanta, the comedian denounced in a monologue the manner in which "every person tries to be a victim" in this case.

"If everybody claims to be a victim, then nobody will hear the real victims," Chris Rock said. "Even me getting smacked by Suge Smith ... I went to work the next day, I got kids," he joked.

Chris Rock May Forgives Will Smith But Does Not Forget

"Anyone who says words hurt has never been punched in the face," the stand-up comedian added
Will Smith, who shocked his fans and the world of cinema by punching Chris Rock on stage at the Oscars, recently shared an emotional video to apologize to Rock.

"I was fogged out by that point," Smith said, explaining why it took so long to offer Rock an apology. "It’s all fuzzy. I’ve reached out to Chris and the message that came back is that he’s not ready to talk. And when he is, he will reach out," he said.

Will Smith also apologized to Chris Rock's mother and brother, as well as his family, especially his wife Jada Pinkett-Smith.

At a certain point, Smith seemed to be almost in tears which maybe explains why Chirs Rock felt the need to say: "If everyone says they are a victim, no one will listen to the real victims anymore."

Smith slapped Rock onstage at the last Oscar Gala, after a joke about his wife, Jada Pinkett-Smith, who has alopecia. After the slap, Smith resigned from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. He was also given a 10-year ban.

Earlier this month, Kevin Hart, who is close friends with Chris Rock and Will Smith, said that he hopes both of them can "move past" the violent event that occurred.
