With many people still weighing in on one of the greatest nights on television where Chris Rock got slapped on the Oscars stage by Will Smith, Rose Rock who happens to be Chris Rock’s mum has also dropped her two cents about the whole incident.
She made this known during an interview with South Carolina’s WISTV, where she said, “When Will slapped Chris, he slapped all of us, but he really slapped me.”
When asked why that statement, she continued by saying, “When you hurt my child, you hurt me.”
She further added that she didn’t think the apology Will Smith posted on his Instagram account felt genuine, saying, “I feel really bad that he never apologized, his people wrote up a piece and said, ‘I apologize to Chris Rock,’ but something like that is personal. You reach out.”
