Punishment arriving in Smith got a decade-long ban from the ceremony as a punishment by the Academy’s official. It was after that that Chris Rock decided to address the event’s consequences.
Rock’s reaction to comedy shows
Chris was performing last Friday in Baltimore to a crowd that was sold out. In between the performance, Rock suddenly opened up on the Oscar slap. At that event, there was a reporter Annie Rose Ramos from WJZ, also a local CBS affiliate. She posted some glimpses of the event on her Twitter feed. Ramos poked up on his statement. Rock walked out for 30 seconds and then said that he was alright. He continued by saying that he is healed from the bruises and wounds. But he didn’t mention slap throughout the complete show.
This may be his style of admitting things. He didn’t make any kind of statement about his emotions or how he felt regarding the event. Presenting at a previous event, he said that he won’t talk about that until he gets paid. It might be the case where Chris doesn’t want to mix up both these things or he doesn’t want to upset his fans and spoil their moods. He is maintaining silence over this topic.
