Although Rock declined to discuss specifics, he used the slapping incident as material for his comedy tour titled “Ego Death World Tour”. The comedian hinted that he might be open to talking about the physical altercation on Netflix.

“People expect me to talk about the bulls — I’m not going to talk about it now, I’ll get to it eventually – on Netflix,” the comedian joked.

“Anyone who says ‘words hurt’ has never been punched in the face,” he said on Thursday’s show.

Rock was slapped by Will Smith at the 94th Academy Awards. The comedian had made a joke about the bald head of Jada Pinkett Smith during the presentation of the Oscar for best documentary feature.

The ‘Hancock’ star was cleared to accept his Oscar on stage less than an hour later. The next day, he apologized to Rock and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences via Instagram. Smith then resigned from the Academy.

Despite his resignation, the Academy decided to ban smith to attend the Oscars and other events for the next 10 years.

Smith apparently started working on the aftermath of the incident and recently traveled to India to focus on yoga and meditation. The trip came as reports surfaced that the actor did not “apologize personally” at Rock.
