It’s been almost a month since Chris Rock being slapped by Will Smith at this year’s Oscars. Many people have been harsh on the incident, now Chris Rock’s mother is sharing her thoughts on the whole thing.
In an interview with South Carolina’s WISTV, Chris’ mother Rose Rock shared her thoughts on the slap and revealed that the incident didn’t just affect Chris. She speaks,
“When Will slapped Chris, he slapped all of us, but he actually slapped me.” When asked why she said that, Ms Rose went on to say: “When you hurt my child, you hurt me.”
She was also asked if given the chance to talk to Will, what she would say.
“I don’t know what to say other than, what the hell are you thinking? You did a slap, but a lot could have happened since then. Chris could have backed off and fell. You could actually be handcuffed… you don’t think. You reacted to your wife giving you one eye, and you lost her a day because she was funny when it happened,” she said.
Ms Rose, who did not attend the show this year, said Chris was excited to be presented with the award for Quest Love, but that moment was taken away due to the slap.
She added, “No one even heard his speech. Nobody can be in this moment because everyone is sitting there like, ‘what just happened? “
The new season of “Red Table Talk” began earlier this week, and at the start of the new episode, Jada Pinkett Smith revealed that the Smith family is still recovering from the Oscars incident. She speak, “Considering all that has happened in the past few weeks, the Smith family is focused on healing deep wounds. Some discoveries surrounding our healing will be shared at the table when time calls back. ”
Earlier this month, the Academy announced that Will Smith is forbidden from attending the Oscars and any Academy events for the next 10 years.
