‘When You Hurt My Child, You Hurt Me’: Chris Rock’s Mom on Oscar Incident
Recently Chris Rock’s mom Rose revealed she’s ‘really, really proud of how he handled the slap debacle. Rose said to North Carolina NBC affiliate WIS 10 News “I told someone, when Will slapped Chris, he slapped all of us, but he really slapped me. When you hurt my child, you hurt me.”
Chris Rock’s mother who is 77 years old revealed that Chris is “still processing”.
said she was “really, really proud” of how her son reacted on the stage at that time. Chris has remained fairly mum — but revealed he was “processing” at his stand-up show in Boston, MA just days later adding he “didn’t have a bunch of s— planned” to address it. He’s also said in a comedy routine he’ll speak about the slap when “paid.”
What would Chris Rock’s mom say to Will Smith?
“I have no idea what I would say other than, ‘What in the world were you thinking?’ Because you did a slap, but so many things could have happened,”.
She explained“ Chris could have stepped back and fallen. You really could have gotten taken out in handcuffs. You didn’t think. You reacted to your wife giving you the side-eye, and you went up, and you made her day because she was bowled over laughing when it happened,”
Later she added “I feel really bad that he never apologized. I mean his people wrote up a piece saying I apologize to Chris Rock, but you see something like that is personal, you reach out.”
