Comedian, Chris Rock has broken his silence days after he was slapped by Will Smith for a bald Joke about his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith.
The 'Everybody Hates Chris' star addressed the issue slightly as he returned to the stage for the first time since the awards scandal and performed in Boston on Wednesday to a sold-out show.
WuzupNigeria reported that despite a public apology from Smith, Rock had remained silent over the incident as the video of the slap shattered Youtube views record.
According to UK Sun, Rock broke down in tears on stage of his first show since Smith's Oscars slap, telling fans that he's "still processing" the incident.
Upon receiving a warm response from the crowd, Chris was emotional and said, "Let me be all misty and s***," according to Chloe Melas from CNN.
Chris then sarcastically asked the audience: "How was your weekend?," to which the crowd responded with laughter.
He continued: "I don't have a bunch of s*** to say about that, so if you came here for that," he said while trailing off.
"I had written a whole show before this weekend. I'm still processing what happened, so at some point I'll talk about that s***. It'll be serious. It'll be funny, but right now I'm going to tell some jokes."
Listen to the audio below:
"I would like to publicly apologize to you, Chris. 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," Smith said in his apology two days ago. Read the full statement here.
Meanwhile, the Academy has condemned the act by kicking against any form of violence just as the Los Angeles Police noted that it is aware of the incident.
