One year after the notorious Oscar slap, Will Smith and his wife Jada Pinkett Smith were dragged by Chris Rock in his live Netflix comedy show on Saturday.
One year after the Oscars incident, Chris Rock used his most recent comedy show as an opportunity to vent about Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith.
Chris Rock: Selective Outrage, a comedy special that Rock hosted on Saturday, was Netflix’s first live-streamed event and, as he later disclosed, had a tie to Will, 54. Rock took time out of his program to bash Will and his marriage even though he stated to have grown up loving and “rooting for” them.
“Will Smith practices selective outrage,” said Rock in his stand-up routine, referring to the Oscar slap, “Everybody that really knows knows I had nothing to do with that s—. I didn’t have any ‘entanglements.’ “
Rock was referring to back in July 2020, when Jada, 51, confessed to the world about having an “entanglement” with singer August Alsina years ago while she and Will were on a break. She explained at the time that she and Will eventually were able to repair their relationship, saying at the time, “We have really gotten to that new place of unconditional love.”

“We all been cheated on. Everybody in this industry has been cheated on,” joked Rock in the comedy special, “None of us have ever been interviewed by the person that cheated on us on television. None of us. … Why the f— would you do that s—? She hurt him way more than he hurt me, okay?”
