Chris Rock has reacted once again on stage to the slap he received from Will Smith at the Oscars ceremony. The American comedian has never officially responded to the incident.
“The motherfucker hit me for a joke that was bullshit. The nicest joke I ever made,” Rock said during a show in Liverpool earlier this week, according to British media. The comedian made a joke about Jada Pinkett Smith, Will’s wife, at the Oscar ceremony in March. He said that “Jada couldn’t wait for ‘G.I. Jane 2′”. That was a reference to the film ‘G.I. Jane’, in which lead actress Demi Moore has a shaved head. Pinkett Smith herself is bald because she suffers from the hair disease alopecia. Her husband although could not appreciate the joke, he stormed onto the stage and slapped Rock in the face. Smith apologised afterwards. He is not welcome at the Oscars in the coming years.

Not a victim
Rock said at a show in July that he did not see himself as a “victim”. “Yes, it hurt, like a motherfucker. But the next day I just went to work. I’m not going to the hospital for a cut.”
