Chris Rock addressed the Will Smith incident in his first standup performance since the Oscars. Rock was in Boston, Mass. performing two shows on Wednesday.
"How was your weekend?" Rock asked the audience.
He ultimately had to put an end to the standing ovation he received telling the crowd, "Yo, let me do the show."
Then he explained, "I don't have a bunch of [expletive] about what happened, so if you came to hear that, I have a whole show I wrote before this weekend. I'm still kind of processing what happened. So, at some point I'll talk about that [expletive]. And it will be serious and funny."
A fan in the audience shouted, "[Expletive] Will Smith."
Later on in his set, he told the audience, “Except for some other pretty weird things, life is pretty good right now,” which led to big cheers. In general, the crowd appeared to be more responsive than Rock was used to or expecting, with the comedian at times referencing the loud reactions.
Earlier Wednesday, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences issued an apology to Chrihs. They are conducting a vote on disciplinary action against Smith on April 18.
