Chris Rock Is In LA Amid Oscars Weekend Two Years After The Infamous Will Smith Slap, But Will He Show Up At The Event?


In 2022, the 94th Academy Awards show became synonymous with the slap that caused buzz around the Internet. Chris Rock, who was hosting the biggest night in Hollywood, was slapped by Will Smith after he made a joke about wife Jada Pinkett Smith’s shaved head, referencing G.I. Jane. Following the incident, Smith won an Oscar for Best Actor for his performance in King Richard. Now, two years later, while Smith won’t be attending the 2024 Oscars due to his ban, there are reports that Rock is back in town, coincidentally over the same huge weekend for movies. But is he attending the event?

Well, neither Chris Rock’s representatives or the Academy have commented on whether he’ll be at the show or not. But if he does attend, it would be his first appearance back in the Dolby Theater since the 2022 incident. According to Page Six, he was spotted out and about in West Hollywood on Thursday afternoon outside of  the Sunset Marquis hotel. The news outlet’s source claimed that he seemed to be in very high spirits. They said:

He was in such a great mood. He was very cheerful, like he was out and about and ready to make the rounds… [The slap] felt like water under the bridge.
