In his latest live stand-up Netflix special, Chris Rock didn’t hold back when it came to addressing the Oscars slap incident, but that wasn’t the only topic he had on his mind.
The comedian also took aim at Jada Pinkett Smith and her husband, Will Smith, for their public discussion of Jada’s affair with R&B singer August Alsina.
During his segment, Rock stated that Will Smith practices “selective outrage” and that everyone knows what happened.
He then went on to say, “Will Smith’s wife was f**king her son’s friend,” referring to Jada’s affair with Alsina, who was 22 years old at the time, while Jada was 43.
Jada had previously revealed the affair on her Facebook series, Red Table Talk, describing it as an “entanglement.”
Rock expressed his disbelief that two talented people like Will and Jada would do something so “low down” and choose to put it on the internet for the world to see.
He also pointed out that while everyone has been cheated on, none of us have ever been interviewed by the person who cheated on us on television.
“They’re like, ‘Hey, I was sucking somebody else’s d***. How did that make you feel?'” he joked.
Rock then suggested that Jada hurt Will way more than he hurt her, saying, “I have no idea why two talented people would do something that fking low down. What the fk?”
Many fans of Jada and Will were upset with Rock’s comments, calling them hurtful and disrespectful.
Some defended Jada’s decision to come forward and talk about the affair, saying that it was a brave and honest thing to do.
However, Rock’s comments didn’t come out of nowhere. In 2016, Rock made a G.I. Jane joke about Jada’s bald head at the Oscars, which led to an altercation between him and Will Smith.
The incident resulted in Smith receiving a 10-year ban from the Oscars.
While some fans are criticizing Rock for his comments, others are applauding him for his honesty and for not holding back on a controversial topic.
It remains to be seen whether Jada or Will will respond to Rock’s comments, but for now, the internet is abuzz with reactions to the comedian’s latest stand-up special.
