Chris Rock recently made headlines when he joked about Jada Pinkett Smith’s short hair cut at the 94th Academy Awards.
Before presenting the Best Documentary Feature award to Questlove, Rock joked that Jada Pinkett Smith may appear in a G.I. Jane sequel owing to her shaved hair.
Pinkett Smith rolled her eyes then her husband, Will Smith, stepped on stage and hit Rock across the face.
Attendees understood Rock’s underlying anguish despite his failure to file a police report during the event.
As he continued his post-Oscars comedy tour, Chris Rock addressed his lack of reaction on the event.
Of course, there’s another, slightly more ominous reading into his words: perhaps he’s talking to his legal team to form a case against Will, in which he could be reimbursed similarly.
This was Rock’s comments while on his comedy tour:
“I’m OK. I have a whole show and I’m not talking about that until I get paid.”
Ryan Kinel from RK Outpost did a video covering why it’s very possible Rock will sue Will Smith.
