Chris Rock insists he is ‘not a victim’ after Oscars ‘slapgate’ incident with Will Smith

Chris Rock insists he is “not a victim” as he joked about Will Smith slapping him at the Oscars.

The 57-year-old comic co-headlined a stand-up show at the PNC Bank Arts Center in New Jersey on Sunday and took the opportunity to address the scandal at the Academy Awards, which saw the King Richard star lash out at him after he made a joke about the actor’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith.

A source told Us Weekly that Rock referred to Smith, 53, as “Suge Smith”, which is assumed to be a reference to incarcerated Death Row Records boss Suge Knight.

He also joked: “Anyone who says words hurt has never been punched in the face.”
