Everything seems to indicate that the differences between Will Smith Y Chris Rock it is far from over. After the episode called “slapgate”, in which Smith slapped Rock in the face of the last delivery of the Oscars, both parties were later shown standing in very different places. And while the actor seeks to redirect his career, the comedian does not finish forgiving his aggressor.
As part of his tour of England with Dave Chappelle, Rock referred to Smith and made a very severe comment. During his stand-up show and before a packed audience, the comedian assured: “That asshole hit me for a stupid prank. It was one of the nicest jokes I ever made.”.
Chapelle himself concluded in this regard: “Will disguised himself as someone perfect for 30 years and suddenly ripped off his mask and showed us that he’s just as disgusting as the rest of us. And beyond the consequences of what he did, I just hope he doesn’t put on that mask again and let his true face breathe.”
This is not the first time that the humorist refers to the protagonist of ‘I Am Legend’. After Smith uploaded a video apologizing for what happened, Rock took advantage of one of his shows to respond, and stressed: “Everybody tries to be a fucking victim. And if everyone claims to be a victim, then no one will listen to the real victims (…). Anyone who says words hurt has never been punched in the face”.
