Chris Rock has revealed the joke that wasn’t included in his Netflix special, and it didn’t hold back in any way.
Rock finally addressed that slap in a new show, streamed live on Netflix, that dropped over the weekend.
Now, we all know the drama that unfolded during the 2022 Oscars, but let’s have a quick recap…
It all kicked off when Jada’s husband, actor Will Smith, punched Rock on stage after he made a joke about her.
It’s safe to say, it was an event that got everyone talking for weeks.
Rock was hosting the Oscars when he made a G.I. Jane joke about Jada Pinkett Smith, which resulted in the infamous slap.
“Jada, can’t wait for G.I. Jane 2,” Rock said referring to the G.I. Jane movie that sees actress, Demi Moore, shave her head.
His joke appeared to refer to Jada’s shaven hairdo after she opened up about her experience of hair loss from alopecia.
At first, Will appeared to laugh off Rock’s comment while Jada looked very unimpressed.
But, after the cameras cut away from the couple and back to Rock, Will stormed onto the stage where he slapped Rock.
Will then returned to his seat where he shouted profanities at the comedian.
After this, Will was banned from the Academy Awards for ten years. According to TMZ, John Bailey, CEO, and Academy President said: “The Board [of Governors] has decided, for a period of ten years, from April 8, 2022, Mr. Smith shall not be permitted to attend any Academy events or programs, in person or virtually, including but not limited to the Academy Awards.”
However, it appears that the slap receiver addressed the memorable moment via his own platform.
Rock starred in Netflix’s first-ever live streamed event, a comedy special titled Selective Outrage.
In the special, Rock says: “You never know who might get triggered. You know what people say, they say, ‘words hurt’.
“Anybody that says words hurt has never been punched in the face.”
He adds: “People are like, ‘Did it hurt?’ It still hurts! I got ‘Summertime’ ringing in my ears.”
He also went on to discuss Jada’s affair, saying: “His wife was f***ing her son’s friend. I normally would not talk about this s***…
“I have no idea why two talented people would do something that f***ing lowdown.
“We’ve all been cheated on. Everybody in here has been cheated on. None of us has ever been interviewed by the person that cheated on us… on television. She hurt him way more than he hurt me.”
And now Rock has shared one of his jokes that got removed from the show for being a little too much.
The comedian made the comment in honor of his longtime pal Adam Sandler while accepting the Mark Twain Award for American Humor.
Rock said during his time on stage that he would share some jokes from his most recent special that didn’t make it to Netflix.
Rock said on Sunday night: “Paul Pelosi [is] the only guy who knows how I felt.
“Just you and me, Paul.”
He was referring to Paul Pelosi, Nancy Pelosi’s husband, who was attacked at his San Francisco home last year.
Rock also remarked: “I’m not a victim, baby. You will never see me on Oprah or Gayle, crying. You will never see it, never gonna happen… I took that hit like Pacquiao.
“I know you can’t tell on camera – Will Smith is significantly bigger than me.
“We are not the same size, OK? Will Smith does movies with his shirt off. You’ve never seen me do a movie with my shift off.
“If I’m in a movie getting open heart surgery, I’ve got on a sweater. Will Smith played Muhammad Ali in a movie.”
