Willow Smith Subtly Reacts To Chris Rock's Netflix Comedy Special About Her Parents

Days Rock's comedy special titled, "Selective Outrage," aired — where he addressed the incident at the 2022 Oscars — Willow seemingly reacted to the comedian's diss. Taking to her Instagram Story, the California native shared a stunning picture of herself.

The image captured the "Female Energy" singer in all her glory, giving off foxy vibes as she stared seductively at the camera. The close-up snap showed Willow flaunting her luscious skin, rosy pink lips, and multiple piercings.

Without a speck of makeup, the 22-year-old's beauty was almost ethereal, with her cat-like brown eyes giving off tints of green in the sunlight. The "Men In Black" actor's daughter took the gorgeous selfie in a car, donning a black t-shirt with a black-and-white scarf wrapped on her head.

The "Wait a Minute!" artist captioned the sexy snap, "big feelings." Although the young entertainer did not enlighten us about the meaning behind her cryptic post, it was safe to assume the NAACP Image Award winner was not bothered by Rock's verbal attacks on her parents.

The comedian discussed his viral moment with the "King Richard" star during his live Netflix special. This stand-up show at Baltimore's Hippodrome Theatre marked the first time the 58-year-old had publicly addressed the issue.

Although he made various references to the Oscars incident, the "Spiral" star did not start his slam dunks until the end of the special. "Everybody f**kin' knows. Yes, it happened, like a year ago. I got smacked at the f**king Oscars by this motherf**ker," Rock began.

"People are like, 'Did it hurt? It still hurts! I've got 'Summertime' ringing in my ears," the comedian joked before assuring fans he was not trying to play the victim card. According to the stand-up personality, he took the hit like Pacquiao and would not cry about it on shows like Oprah.

As for why he got hit by the "Aladdin" star, the Grammy winner claimed Will was "practicing selective outrage." Referencing Jada's "entanglement" scandal with August Alsina, the 58-year-old said: "Everybody knows that had nothing to do with me. I didn't have any entanglements."

Getting heated, the South Carolina native slammed the lovebirds for airing their dirty laundry on the "Red Table Talk" show. According to Rock, he could not understand why the respected couple would do something that "low-down."

"We've all been cheated on. None of us have ever been interviewed by the person who cheated on us," the father of two said. "Why the f**k would you do that shit? She hurt him way more than I did... Everybody called him a bitch, and who's he hit? Me!"

For those wondering why the entertainer did not defend himself, the Primetime Emmy Award winner responded by dissing his attacker's upbringing. "Because I got parents! Because I was raised!" Rock declared. "And you know what my parents taught me? Don't fight in front of white people!"

Willow Smith Defended Her Father's Actions After His Viral Oscars Moment

Last year, The Blast reported that the youngest Smith seemingly defended her father following his attack on Rock at the Oscars ceremony. In a heart-to-heart interview, the 22-year-old addressed the situation, asking for the public's understanding.

The songstress noted that she saw her family as humans instead of the stars people celebrated. "I love and accept them for all their humanness," Willow explained, noting that their "humanness" was sometimes not accepted because of their celebrity status.

"We're expected to act in a way that isn’t conducive to a healthy human life and isn’t conducive to being honest," the California native continued, trying to help fans understand her father was a human capable of making mistakes.

Despite the criticisms and constant media coverage of the incident, Willow remained aloof. The "Meet Me At Our Spot" singer noted that the public's reactions to the matter did not rock her as much as her "own internal demons."
