‘Hope he doesn’t put his mask back on’: Chris Rock Trolls Will Smith Yet Again, Says Smith’s ‘Ugly’ Who Fooled Everyone For 30 Years With His ‘Perfect Person’ Mask

An incident took place on March 27, 2022, at the 94th Academy Awards ceremony where Will Smith walked up on the stage and slapped comedian, Chris Rock. The comedian was performing at the awards and while doing so, he cracked a few jokes about celebrities, one of which included Will Smith’s wife Jada Pinkett Smith.

The comedian’s attempt at humor did not sit quite well with the actor and he ended up slapping Chris Rock in anger. The incident left everyone shocked, both the people present at the event and fans who got to know about it later on. On a recent show, Chris Rock was asked about the incident and it appears that the comedian is still not over what had happened even after months have passed.

After the incident took place, Will Smith decided to offer an apology for the situation. The actor wrote on social media, “I was out of line and I was wrong. I am embarrassed and my actions were not indicative of the man I want to be. There is no place for violence in a world of love and kindness.” After the Aladdin actor put this on social media, he received backlash for not apologizing directly to the comedian.

The actor did justify himself by posting a video on his YouTube channel and apologized for the incident once again. “I reached out to Chris, and the message that came back is he’s not ready to talk, but when he is, he will reach out. I will say to you, Chris, I apologize to you. My behavior was unacceptable, and I’m here whenever you’re ready to talk.” He stressed the fact that Chris Rock does not want to talk about it at the moment but he had tried to make amends from his side.

Whatever the consequences are … I hope he doesn’t put his mask back on again and lets his real face breathe. I see myself in both men.”
