Chris Rock’s got bigger fish to fry than to get caught up in Jada Pinkett Smith’s plea for reconciliation between Rock and Will Smith.

And Rock, apparently, is paying it no mind at all.

“He’s not concerned with the Smiths at the moment,” a source told ET. “He’s touring and he’s preparing for a comedy special.”

It’s been two months since Smith’s infamous, forceful right-hand-to-the-face slap of Rock at the Oscars, and Pinkett Smith opened up about the incident on the most recent episode of Red Table Talk.

“Now, about Oscar night, my deepest hope is that these two intelligent, capable men have an opportunity to heal, talk this out and reconcile,” she said. “The state of the world today, we need them both. And we all actually need one other more than ever. Until then, Will and I are continuing to do what we have done for the last 28 years, and that’s keep figuring this thing called life together.”

Smith apologized to Rock via social media and received a ten-year ban from the Oscars just days after he won the Best Actor Oscar for his portrayal of Venus and Serena Williams’ father, Richard Williams, in King Richard.

Pinkett Smith – who suffers from alopecia – attended the Oscars with her husband. Rock, who was serving as host of the awards show, cracked an innocuous one-liner about Pinkett Smith’s shaved head, which sent Smith into a profanity-laced tirade and prompted him to walk onto the stage and slap Rock in the face during the live TV broadcast.

A source told ET that Pinkett-Smith “was glad that Will stood up for her” and that she “was hurt by Chris’ remark.”

The day after the incident, a source close to Rock said Rock was unaware that Jada has alopecia. Rock has a reputation for being genuine and for not keeping up with the Hollywood scene.

Rock declined to press charges that night, and he’s made passing jokes about the slap during different stops on his stand-up tour. He may get another shot to host The Oscars next year.

      • I agree Rock showed he had class and he should have filed assault charges on Will Smith he just showed he is a jerk who thinks he’s above everyone else I will never waste my money on any movie he is in again or Jada for that matter! What lousy parents they are to teach their children that this is how you behave and those kids are so proud of the way will behaved Shame on him!!!

  1. You can think Rock is a pig all you want, but he’s acting like the bigger man after the fact.

    • No he is not. first off, he’s the one that started the shit with the tastless joke. He even knew it because right after it he goes “come on, it wasnt that bad”

      Then he proceeds to take more shots at will in his stand up and after dave chapelle got tackled on stage. Dude isnt being the bigger man, hes been a stubborn child.

      • Give me a break, comparing Jada to Demi Moore is more of an insult to the hard work Demi did to make this picture. If anything Demi should be pissed.

      • Question – what do you THINK you would have done if one of your colleagues stood up, walk across the room and slapped the Sshh out of you, while on a live zoom call with other colleagues watching? You likely would have slapped him back….. we will never know, but to call someone a pig sounds childish in of itself.
        When they go low, you take the higher ground. That’s whT Chris Rock did! Period.

  2. Chris Rock has class unlike Will Smith. I use to really like Will Smith but not any more. I’ll make sure I never watch anything he is involved with.

  3. Lol not all the yt folk vowing to boycott Will Smith for defending his wife. Get bent 😆

  4. Will Smith just wanted to look like a big man! Like the world don’t know his wife slept with a guy his sons age and had no remorse! He got plunked buy his wife so he had to look like a big man! He should have slapped her ass. She made him look like a fool. Now he look’s like a double fool. With no job. She’s wrong.Jada get your man!

    • I agree Rock showed he had class and he should have filed assault charges on Will Smith he just showed he is a jerk who thinks he’s above everyone else I will never waste my money on any movie he is in again or Jada for that matter! What lousy parents they are to teach their children that this is how you behave and those kids are so proud of the way will behaved Shame on him!!! I agree he’s just trying to look like he’s a bad ass he just showed what a punk he is

  5. I’m sure many people wanted to slap Chris for his jokes about them. He’s not funny never has been to me. Jada is as usual at the center. 28yrs of a bad marriage takes a toll on you. Was Will wrong? Yes. Did he deserve all he’s getting? No. It’s overkill. Jada can’t help but disrespect will any chance she gets. She’s not nor has she ever been in love with him. To me that’s evident. Jada needs to take several seats and shit up.
    Will needs to leave her alone and move on she’s not worth it. Chris should be happy he got slapped,he’s working again because of it.

  6. 👏🏿👏🏿👏🏿👏🏿Many rounds of applause to you. Apparently people who said Pinkett-Smith would be her husband’s downfall. . ., were. . . .RIGHT!! My opinion has always been; “yes, they looked like an odd couple, but, there is no accounting for taste.” Plus, she SEEMED so grateful to have found a “good man,” considering the options she had.

  7. There is a place and a time for everything. A well adjusted person would hold their anger until a private moment. Will Smith exhibited a person on the verge of a breakdown. This is mental illness displayed on international television. Our best showed his ass, like a child. We should all take note of who our childrens roles models are.

  8. Insofar as who sides with who it really doesn’t matter. The Smith’s reputation is permanently sealed as two reprehensible individuals. The carefully sculpted nice guy image ffor him is gone – permanently stained. Many believe JPS prompted him to act, no matter, she is far removed from being any sort of good image professionally or in how she chooses to live her life. Fact is, Will Smith’s action evokes question pertaining to his mental state, no doube he’s receiving professional help.. Life for my race, this HUMAN RACE is a constant challenge for all of us.. May each individual rise to resolve their personal challenges satisfactorily.

  9. O the whole, you boo a joke if it is out of bounds. Smith and Jada are too full of themselfs. No interest in them anymore.
