'Slapgate' aftermath didn't only affect Will Smith, but also Chris Rock, who is supported by some, but also smeared by others for his insensitive joke about Jada Pinkett-Smith medical condition. Despite this, Rock is still being a gentleman about the whole affair.
Wanda Sykes, Rock's close friend and 94th Academy awards co-host, told on 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' that after the notorious incident, stand-up comedian apologized to her for unwillingly making the whole show about himself.
"I hope he doesn't mind me saying this, but I saw Chris at [Guy Oseary's after party] and as soon as I walked up to him, the first thing he said is, "I'm so sorry." I was like, "Why are you apologizing?" He was like, "It was supposed to be your night. You and Amy and Regina were doing such a great job. I'm so sorry this is now gonna be about this." Because that's who Chris is".
Events such as this should be remembered as a celebration of cinema with great jokes, touching speeches, and not for assaulting people in front of millions of viewers.
