“Fuck your hostage video,” Rock said during a weekend gig at London’s O2 Arena, according to Deadline.
“Jada, I love you,” Rock said from the stage during the Oscars ceremony. ”‘G.I. Jane 2,’ can’t wait to see it.”
In response, Will Smith marched onto the stage, slapped Rock then returned to his seat and shouted: “Keep my wife’s name out your fucking mouth!”
In July, Smith released a video to apologize.
“So, I will say to you, Chris, I apologize to you,” Smith said. “My behavior was unacceptable and I’m here whenever you’re ready to talk.”
“There is no part of me that thinks that was the right way to behave in that moment,” Smith added. “There’s no part of me that thinks that is the optimal way to handle a feeling of disrespect or insult.”
Not only was Rock not buying it, he also defended his joke.
Rock replied: “Goddam right … the motherfucker hit me over a bullshit joke – the nicest joke I ever told.”
Smith, who would go on to win the Best Actor award that night, resigned from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. The Academy also banned him from the Oscars for 10 years.
