Chris Rock's Mama Is Speaking About The SLAP

Chris Rock's mother is speaking out after the incident involving her son and Will Smith at the 94th Academy Awards.

On Friday, Rose Rock sat down for an interview with a local South Carolina news station and discussed the moment when Smith walked onstage at the Oscars and struck Chris after a joke the comedian made about Jada Pinkett Smith's shaved head. (Pinkett Smith has been open about living with alopecia.)

Rose Rock said, “You reacted to your wife giving you the side-eye, and you went and made her day because she was mulled over laughing when it happened.”

Rose shared that she initially thought the incident was staged while watching it unfolded during the broadcast from her home but realized it was real when Smith started using "obscenities."

She then said, "When he slapped Chris, he slapped all of us. He really slapped me. Because when you hurt my child, you hurt me."

"No one heard his speech. No one was able to just be in the moment because everyone was sitting there like, 'What just happened?' "

At his first public appearance days after the Oscars, Chris addressed the situation at a comedy show, saying, "I'm still processing what happened." He told fans in the audience he would probably talk about what happened at some point in a more serious setting.
