“Because I got parents, that’s why. Because I was raised, and you know what my parents taught me? Don’t fight in front of white people.”

Chris Rock even praised the actor, saying,

“I loved Will Smith. My whole life, I loved Will Smith. I saw him open up for Run-D.M.C. He makes great movies. I have rooted for Will Smith my whole life,” Rock said. And now I watch Emancipation just to see him get whooped.”
