At another comedy show, Rock also reportedly told the audience that he wasn’t a “victim.”
We may be inching closer to hearing Chris Rock’s side of the story in relation to the Academy Awards incident involving Will Smith. “The Slap” has been discussed and debated at length—from fans to the famous. The world witnessed Smith slap Rock at the Oscars following the latter’s joke about Jada Pinkett Smith, and since that time, there have been fiery takes on the topic. Smith has shirked away from the limelight while Rock has hit the road on a comedy tour, and recently, he was said to have mentioned his unfortunate incident.
According to OK! Magazine, Rock was performing in New Jersey over the weekend when he had a few thoughts about being seen as a “victim.”

“I’m not a victim, motherf*cker,” Rock reportedly said before saying that he took the hit well. “Yeah, that sh*t hurt, motherf*cker, but I shook that sh*t off and went to work the next day… I don’t go to the hospital for a papercut.”
