Chris Rock talks about Will Smith’s Oscars slap in Netflix special

Chris Rock fights back the way he does best on stage.

According to Netflix, the legendary comic will have a live stand-up special on Netflix on March 4, where he’ll give Will Smith a slap speech at the Oscars.

Over the past year, Rock has referred to the incident in brief sarcasm in stand-up performances, but for the first time he’ll be dealing with it longer.

The news was first reported by The Wall Street Journal.

The Rock workshopped material for the special at the Arena show in Charleston in January. He dressed in all white and talked about his now infamous moment with Smith for about a third of the set, according to attendees who spoke to CNN.

Rock talked about the collective outrage after the Oscar incident and made a few jokes.

“What people want to know is… did it hurt? Yes, it hurt. I was attacked by a shark and I heard ‘Summertime’ blaring in my ear,” Rock joked.

On another line, Rock talked about the size difference between the two men.

“Will Smith is a big guy. I’m not,” Locke said. “Will Smith is shirtless in his movies. If a movie sees me having open heart surgery, he’s going to wear a sweater.”

“Chris Rock: Selective Outrage” will stream live on Netflix from the Hippodrome Theater in Baltimore on Saturday at 10pm ET, one week before this year’s Academy Awards.
