The longtime friends, who have known each other since working on “Saturday Night Live” in the 90s, proved their love hadn’t dwindled.
On Tuesday, March 29, the “Just Go with It” star tweeted his support for the comedian’s upcoming “Ego Death” world tour.
Adam Sandler Cannot Wait For Chris Rock’s Upcoming Comedy Tour
The 2022 Academy Awards ceremony became an unforgettable night for fans and celebrities after two A-list entertainers turned the stage into a WWE ring.
Rather than dwell on the incident, Sandler reminded the world of the brighter things in store for his friend, such as the “Spiral” actor’s upcoming comedy world tour.
Taking to Twitter, the “Uncut Gems” star shared a poster for the tour alongside the words, “Can’t wait for this. Love you buddy!”
Given the ongoing drama between Rock and Smith, this heartwarming post received mixed reactions from the filmmaker’s followers. Some people were touched by Sandler’s message, while others expressed their excitement about the tour.
Unsurprisingly, a few social media users couldn’t help but make fun of the comedian’s situation. But while the world was laughing at his expense, the South Carolina native has moved on.
As shared by The Blast, the “I, Robot” star shocked the world at the Oscars on Sunday, March 27, when he assaulted the “Everybody Hates Chris” actor on stage.
This incident occurred after the 57-year-old comedian joked about Jada’s bald head, caused by alopecia. The father-of-two said:
“Jada, I love you. G.I. Jane 2, can’t wait to see it!”

Despite getting slapped on live TV by his colleague, Rock didn’t retaliate; instead, he tried to explain that his words weren’t offensive but simply a gag.
However, the doting husband didn’t care for jokes about his wife’s condition. Like a professional, the “The Longest Yard” actor continued the show without argument.
Although the “2 Days in New York” actor had every right to sue the “King Richard” star for assault, the father-of-two did not escalate the matter.
In a statement, the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) revealed that they were aware of the situation but could not move forward with the case as Rock refused to file a police report.
Nonetheless, the authorities stated that if the comedian changed his mind, they would be “available to complete an investigative report.”
At the moment, the cops may never get their time in the spotlight on this issue as the offender has finally issued a heartfelt apology on Instagram.
The 4-time Grammy winner shared a statement expressing his embarrassment and regret over the incident, which the entertainer described as a poor reflection of himself.
The remorseful piece began with the powerful words, “Violence in all of its forms is poisonous and destructive. My behavior at last night’s Academy Awards was unacceptable and inexcusable.”
The “Aladdin” star continued, “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.”
The father-of-three apologized to Rock for being out of line, as well as to the Academy Awards, the attendees, viewers, and the Williams Family for ruining a “gorgeous journey” with his behavior.
“The Head Of State” Star Received A Silver Lining From The Oscars’ Drama
As reported by New York Post, the price for Rock’s “Ego Death” comedy tour has surged since the 94th Academy Awards ceremony.
Getting slapped by a famous actor created more buzz for the “Down to Earth” star’s upcoming event as sources claimed that ticket sales increased from $46 per ticket to $341.
According to TickPick, a secondary market platform, the organization has sold more tour tickets since the Oscars drama than in the past month.
Fans in major cities across the US, including New York, Chicago, and Las Vegas, would enjoy the “New Jack City” star’s humor on his world tour.
After stopping for a quick gig at Boston’s Wilbur Theater on Wednesday, March 30, the entertainer’s comedy event would officially begin on Saturday, April 2.
