The controversy between Will Smith and Chris Rock gained another chapter this Friday (3). According to the publication of the international portal New York Post, the artist said that he “watched the movie ‘Emancipation’ just to see Will be whipped”.
The speech was said in a humor show by the comedian. In January of this year, Chris remembered the slap he took from Will during the most important awards in Hollywood.
“The thing people want to know: did it hurt? Of course. He played Muhammad Ali! I played Pookie [um personagem pequeno e indefeso de ‘New Jack City – A Gangue Brutal’]. Even in animated movies, I’m a zebra, and he’s a damn shark,” Rock reportedly said, according to the Wall Street Journal.
remember the controversy
Chris Rock made a joke about the look of Will’s wife, Jada Pinkett-Smith. The actress is bald because of alopecia, an autoimmune disease that causes hair loss.
After seeing that Jada didn’t like the joke at all, Will interrupted the event, went on stage and gave the comedian a real slap. The actor was banned from the ceremony for 10 years.
