Chris Rock Drops Hammer: Will Smith ‘Did Impression of Perfect Person for 30 Years and He Ripped His Mask Off’

Chris Rock dropped the hammer on disgraced Hollywood star Will Smith by finally blasting the actor for attacking him at the Oscars earlier this year.

Rock said the Wild Wild West star attacked him over one of the “nicest jokes” he’s ever told.

He added that Smith’s actions showed that he is “just as ugly as the rest of us.”

Rock is currently on a UK tour with fellow-comedian Dave Chappelle.

He made the comment at Liverpool’s M&S Arena when Chappelle asked him about the Oscars slap.

“Did that sh*t hurt?” Chappelle asked.

Rock said: “Goddamn right, the motherf*cker hit me over a bullsh*t joke, the nicest joke I ever told.

“Will did the impression of a perfect person for 30 years, and he ripped his mask off and showed us he was as ugly as the rest of us.

“Whatever the consequences are, I hope he doesn’t put his mask back on again and lets his real face breathe.

“I see myself in both men,” he said.

Will Smith wrote on Instagram after the incident:

“Violence in all of its forms is poisonous and destructive.

“My behavior at last night’s Academy Awards was unacceptable and inexcusable.

“Jokes at my expense are a part of the job, but a joke about Jada’s medical condition was too much for me to bear and I reacted emotionally.

“I would like to publicly apologize to you, Chris.

“I was out of line and I was wrong.

“I am embarrassed and my actions were not indicative of the man I want to be. There is no place for violence in a world of love and kindness.

“I would also like to apologize to the Academy, the producers of the show, all the attendees, and everyone watching around the world.

“I would like to apologize to the Williams Family and my King Richard Family.

“I deeply regret that my behavior has stained what has been an otherwise gorgeous journey for all of us.

“I am a work in progress,” he wrote.
