Chevdove Posted March 12 Report Share Posted March 12 Chris Rock slaps Back Hard at Will and Jada Pinkett Smith in the Netflix special; Selective Outrage I have not been able to see the Neflix special. But there has been quite a buzz about it. So yes, the Oscars is today, March 12, 2023, and I heard that Chris Rock declined. I also heard that the host this year, Jimmy Kimmel, will speak about that infamous slap that Will Smith delivered to Chris Rock last year. I don’t think I would be this curious about the Academy Awards show had it not been for so much propaganda this year about what happened last year and also because of the snub that the movie Women King has gotten as well as the hype about the movie Black Panther. I read that some of the rules that might have went against Women King is that it is not based on accuracy? I don’t know, maybe they will be mentioned. Anyway, I hope that Angela Bassett gets what she wants and well, that song that Rhianna sang is absolutely beautiful. I hope she shines. I just don’t understand what the hype is about the halftime performance because she and the dancers were wearing baggy jumpsuits. But I do understand that may have nothing to do with the complaint and therefore, maybe it could be something offensive. I have not see it yet. I’ve heard so much about these movies up for awards and also, I am very interested in seeing the much talked about movie All About Everything Everywhere [?] and others as well. I’ve heard about Till and Top Gun and so, I am really interested this year in what is being featured. I am not much of a movie goer and usually wait until it comes off the big screen, but maybe if I can get some money, I might go to the theaters. _________________________________________________ Chris Rock slaps back at Will and Jada Pinkett Smith –hard –in live Netflix special BY GREG BRAXTON SENIOR WRITER, CULTURE AND REPRESENTATION MARCH 4, 2023 UPDATED 8:42 PM PT When Will Smith slapped Chris Rock during the 2022 Oscars ceremony, many members of the live audience and TV viewers at home thought it was a joke – until they realized, to their horror, that it wasn’t. https://www.latimes.com/entertainment-arts/tv/story/2023-03-04/chris-rock-netflix-special-selective-outrage _______________________________________________ I also hear that Chris Rock may not be at the Academy Awards show either. But his Neflix special supposedly went very well, although I did hear that Will Smith was not too happy about what Chris Rock had said. Some reporters spoke against Rock for some of his explicative descriptions about Jada but for the most part, he seems to have had awesome reviews. Many people love him and believe that he is a powerhouse and he delivered. Rock did not speak about the infamous slap until the last ten minutes but, he dropped bits and pieces of jabs about ‘the slap’ throughout his skit until the end. And then he brought the mic down! More importantly, he made the big bucks.
