Oscars: Will Smith slams Chris Rock after joking about Jada

Chris Rock’s team shut down a fake statement circulating on the internet following the controversial incident at the Oscars.

The comedian was at the center of the biggest scandal in decades after he was attacked onstage by Will Smith during Sunday’s Oscars.

Chris made a joke about Will’s wife, Jada Pinkett, while presenting the award for best documentary and was stunned when the actor jumped on stage to confront him and slapped him in the face.

“Keep my wife’s name out of your damn mouth,” Will repeatedly shouted at Chris as he returned to his seat.

Shortly after Will posted a statement on social media profusely apologizing for his aggressive behavior, a statement purporting to have come from Chris began making the rounds.

It began: “As a comedian, it can be difficult to understand which lines are allowed to be crossed and which are not. Last night I crossed a line I shouldn’t have crossed and paid the tremendous price of my reputation as a renowned comedian.”

The false statement, originally shared on Facebook, continued: “Comedy is never about making fun of or downplaying people when great ordeal is happening in their lives.






Will has since apologized for his behavior

“Comedy is about using real-life circumstances to create laughter and bring light to an otherwise dark world,” it said.

“In light of this, I sincerely apologize to my friends Jada Pinkett-Smith, Will Smith and the rest of the Smith family for the disrespect and disregard I have shown, which unfortunately was for the whole world to see.

“I hope that with time this situation will be forgiven and we can all end up being better, more considerate people. — Chris Rock,” it concluded.

However, the false apology was dismissed by the comedian’s team, and according to The Hollywood Reporter’s Rebecca Keegan, confirmed it was fake.

“Chris Rock has not yet issued a statement. According to his team, a statement purporting to be from Rock has been circulating that is not his. It’s the one who starts, “As a comedian, it can be difficult to understand…”. she tweeted.
