Chris Rock’s got bigger fish to fry than to get caught up in Jada Pinkett-Smith’s plea for reconciliation between Rock and Will Smith.
And Rock, apparently, is paying it no mind at all.
“He’s not concerned with the Smiths at the moment,” a source told ET. “He’s touring and he’s preparing for a comedy special.”
It’s been two months since Smith’s infamous, forceful right-hand-to-the-face slap of Rock at the Oscars, and Pinkett-Smith opened up about the incident on the most recent episode of Red Table Talk.
“Now, about Oscar night, my deepest hope is that these two intelligent, capable men have an opportunity to heal, talk this out and reconcile,” she said. “The state of the world today, we need them both. And we all actually need one other more than ever. Until then, Will and I are continuing to do what we have done for the last 28 years, and that’s keep figuring this thing called life together.”
Smith apologized to Rock via social media and received a ten-year ban from the Oscars just days after he won the Best Actor Oscar for his portrayal of Venus and Serena Williams’ father, Richard Williams, in King Richard.
Pinkett-Smith – who suffers alopecia – attended the Oscars with her husband. Rock, who was serving as host of the awards show, cracked an innocuous one-liner about Pinkett-Smith’s shaved head, which sent Smith into a profanity-laced tirade and prompted him to walk onto the stage and slap Rock in the face during the live TV broadcast.
A source told ET that Pinkett-Smith “was glad that Will stood up for her” and that she “was hurt by Chris’ remark.”
The day after incident, a source close to Rock said Rock was unaware that Jada has alopecia. Rock has a reputation for being genuine and for not keeping up with the Hollywood scene.
Rock declined to press charges that night, and he’s made passing jokes about the slap during different stops on his stand-up tour. He may get another shot to host The Oscars next year.
