Chris Rock is back on stage, only this time, he's not presenting any award, but he's definitely cracking those jokes, minus Will and Jada Smith.
The 94th Annual Academy Awards will forever be remembered as the time Will Smith slapped Chris Rock on stage, unable to take a joke about Jada’s alopecia.
Chris Rock is currently on his “Ego Death Tour” and walked on stage for the first time after the Oscar slap.
Soon after the presentation, Rock left the Academy Awards, and later Will Smith clinched the Best Actor Award for "King Richard".
The next day, the Academy Award winner issued a formal apology to Rock, on social media, calling his behavior "unacceptable and inexcusable."
The Academy also issued a statement this Wednesday, saying that Smith was asked to leave after the incident but "refused"
At Boston's Wilbur Theater, Rock walked onto the stage to be greeted by the audience with two back-to-back standing ovations, and it moved him to tears.
He alluded to the incident, saying, “I'm still kind of processing what happened, so at some point, I'll talk about that s***.
He also stated that he hasn’t talked to anyone about it yet, meaning, for now, the beef is still on.
