Chris Rock spills the beans on Will Smith and wife in Netflix special

Will Smith’s slapping of Chris Rock at last year’s Oscars generated an international outcry, with many taking sides over the issue. Rock remained, by and large, silent. Until now.

In a Netflix comedy special, entitled Chris Rock: Selective Indignation, the actor and comedian spared no words to make it very clear how he feels about what happened.

Continues after advertising

Not only did Chris Rock claim that he watched Will Smith’s latest film, Emancipation, only to see him “being whipped”, he said that the actor felt “selective outrage”, referring to how he didn’t slap the many other people he talked about his marriage to Jada Pinkett Smith in the past.

Rock even brought up the betrayal of Will Smith’s wife, even using profanities that were said about the two by other people.

“Will Smith practices selective outrage, because everybody knows what happened, everybody knows I had nothing to do with it. I had no rights. For anyone who doesn’t know Will Smith, his wife was having sex with his son’s friend,” Rock said in the Netflix special, among many other things in a lengthy rant.

Remember the story of the slap

It all started with a joke by Chris Rock regarding the hair loss of Jada Pinkett Smith, wife of Will Smith. She has alopecia, which precisely causes hair loss.

“Jade, I love you. GI Jane 2, I can’t wait to see it,” said Chris Rock, leaving Jada Pinkett Smith visibly uncomfortable.

Shortly after, Will Smith appears going towards the presenter on stage and slaps him in the face.

“Keep my wife’s name out of your f*cking mouth,” screams Will Smith shortly afterwards. Chris Rock goes on to say:

“It was just a joke about GI Jane” and Will Smith promptly repeats his own words about the host not making a joke about his wife.

Chris Rock: Selective Indignation is available at Netflix. See the video, below.
