Chris Rock is gearing up for his new Netflix special, where he will reportedly address Will Smith’s slap.

According to sources, Chris Rock plans to use a joke about Will’s Emancipation movie to respond to the A-lister.

Rock said during his Baltimore stop, “The other day, I watched Emancipation just so I could watch him getting whipped.”

He continued, “The thing people wanna know … did it hurt? Hell yeah, it hurt. He played Muhammad Ali! I played Pookie.

Even in animated movies, I’m a zebra, he’s a f**king shark.”

Chris Rock’s new special called Selective Outrage will be out on Netflix on Saturday.

As a fan, should Will Smith be forgiven for the slap?
