Chris Rock Jokes He ‘Got His Hearing Back’ After Will Smith’s Slap At The Oscars

The slap that was tagged “slap scene” resulting into the ban of Will for a decade from the Oscars and Chris Rock, who has yet to release a formal statement addressing the moment Will Smith strolled onto the Oscars stage and hit him in the face.

That hasn’t stopped Chris from vaguely commenting on it during his standup comedy shows, and, according to a local Palm Springs, California paper, Desert Sun, he made light of the situation during a performance at the Fantasy Springs Resort Casino over the weekend.

“I’m OK, I have a whole show and I’m not talking about that until I get paid,” the 57-year-old comedian reportedly told the crowd.

“Life is good. I got my hearing back,” he joked, but didn’t go into any further detail.

Rock’s comments come mere days after it was announced that Will, Oscar’s best actor for 2022, has been banned from the Academy Awards until 2032.

In a statement released by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences( President David Rubin and CEO Dawn Hudson)

“The Board has decided, for a period of 10 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.”

Will Smith was however been allowed to keep his Best Actor Oscar, which he won for King Richard and accepted with a tearful speech less than an hour after the slap.

“The 94th Oscars were meant to be a celebration of the many individuals in our community who did incredible work this past year; however, those moments were overshadowed by the unacceptable and harmful behaviour we saw Mr. Smith exhibit on stage,” Rubin and Hudson’s statement continued.

The Academy also apologised for not adequately addressing the incident during the ceremony, which has been the subject of much debate.

Prior to the ban, Smith resigned from the Academy and released a statement apologising to the Academy and Rock for his behaviour.

While Rock has yet to formally address the situation, that hasn’t stopped his brothers from speaking out about it, with Tony Rock saying he didn’t approve of Smith’s apology and lashing out at Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith in his own comedy show, and Kenny Rock insisting his brother had no idea Pinkett Smith has alopecia.
