Things may never be the same between Chris Rock and Will Smith. As previously reported by REVOLT, the veteran actors had a very public falling out at the 2022 Oscars after the Madagascar star made an offensive joke aimed at Jada Pinkett Smith and received a televised slap from “The Fresh Prince.”
Though Smith has since issued several apologies, Rock doesn’t appear quite ready to call a truce. As the “Everybody Hates Chris” funnyman gears up for his new Netflix special, he’s been testing his material out with audiences. Yesterday (March 2), Decider reported that Rock recently checked out Smith’s latest blockbuster — but not for the reasons many of us would have assumed. “The other day, I watched Emancipation just so I could watch him getting whipped,” sources say the 58-year-old told the crowd at a show at the Hippodrome Theatre in Baltimore on Feb. 17. The 2022 film sees Smith as a slave named Peter in Louisiana.
