Chris Rock Jokes That He’s Not Going To Talk About The Oscars Slap Until He Gets Paid

Or was it a joke!?!!

It’s been two weeks since Will Smith turned the 2022 Oscars into Slapapolooza by slapping Chris Rock for making a G.I. Jane joke about Jada Pinkett Smith. And since then, we’ve heard a lot from Will. We heard from him during his Best Actor speech when he apologized to the Academy and the audience. We heard from him the next day when he apologized to Chris Rock on Instagram. We heard from him when he resigned from the Academy. And we heard from him when the Academy decided to ban him from attending the Oscars for 10 years as punishment. Basically, Will’s statement writers have been busy. But while we’ve heard from The Slapper a lot, we haven’t really heard from The Slapee. Chris is currently doing a stand-up tour, and while he’s dropped words about this mess here and there, he’s mostly kept quiet, saying that he needs time to process it all. But during a show on Friday night, Chris let the audience know that he’s not talking about Will getting slappy with him until someone shows him the MONAAAAAY. “Err, can I pay you not to talk about this so it can finally go away?” thought Will Smith, somewhere.

By now, nearly every living thing on the planet has chimed in about the Oscars Slap. It’s been reported that “mommy” and “daddy” have been replaced by “Team Chris” and “Team Will” as the most common first words said by a baby. Variety even let actor and Academy member Harry Lennix write an op-ed where he declared that Will Smith should return his Oscar to “redeem the integrity of the Oscars.” The Oscars had integrity?! HA! Chris Rock needs to feel threatened by Harry Lennix now because Harry is really bringing the laughs!

As for Chris’ thoughts about getting slapped at the Oscars, he’ll only share them if you pass him a check. According to The Desert Sun, during his show at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio, CA on Friday night, Chris immediately joked about losing his hearing from getting slapped and also said that he’ll talk about it when he gets paid.

Fans of comedian Chris Rock who hoped he’d share his thoughts about being slapped by Will Smith at the Oscars during his show at Fantasy Springs on Friday night were disappointed as soon as he took the stage.

“I’m OK, I have a whole show and I’m not talking about that until I get paid. Life is good. I got my hearing back,” Rock said.

But he did skewer some celebrities and politicians during his set, including Hillary Clinton and her failure to win the presidency in 2008 and 2016, the Kardashians and how they “love Black people so much they take anyone in,” and Meghan Markle’s accusations of racism in the British royal family.

Chris was probably joking, but still, I bet Jada Pinkett Smith is screaming at her Facebook bosses right now to dump as much money as possible onto Chris Rock’s lap so he can do an EXCLUSIVO interview about this on Red Table Talk! And if Will Smith is involved in the interview, they can put them in the middle of a ring, and make it a pay-per-view event.
