Chris Rock addresses Will Smith’s Oscar slap for the first time during sold-out Boston comedy show: ‘Still kind of processing what happened’

Chris Rock only briefly addressed the slap after he returned to the stage Wednesday, saying he was “still kind of processing what happened” Sunday and never mentioning Will Smith by name.

Comedian Chris Rock returned to the stage Wednesday for the first time since being slapped by Will Smith at the Oscars, receiving rapturous applause from a Boston audience.
Rock only briefly addressed the slap, saying he was “still kind of processing what happened” Sunday and never mentioning Smith by name.
“Other than the weird thing, life is pretty good,” Rock said at one point mid-way through his act. The nighttime performance in Boston came just three days after Smith struck the comedian for making a joke about his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith.
Rock wore all white for his performance and seemed to be almost embarrassed by the multiple standing ovations he received. As the applause carried on for minutes — with fans yelling “I love you, Chris!” — the comedian appeared to be getting emotional, a guest seated near the stage told The Associated Press.
“How was your weekend?” Rock joked before getting into his set.
Ticket prices skyrocketed after the Oscar confrontation, but the comedian made clear he wasn’t going to talk at length about it Wednesday.

“If you came to hear that, I’m not … I had like a whole show I wrote before this weekend,” Rock said.
Members of the audience shouted their support for the comedian. At least one person yelled that Rock should sue Smith. Another fan wore a T-shirt featuring the “G.I. Jane” logo and Pinkett Smith’s face.
