Chris Rock insists he's 'not a victim' after Will Smith Oscars slap

During the Oscars ceremony on 27 March, the King Richard actor walked onto the stage and slapped the comedian after he compared his wife Jada Pinkett Smith - who has the medical condition alopecia - to G.I. Jane. While Rock has not yet discussed the incident in an interview he seemingly made a mention of the slap during a show staged at the PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel, New Jersey on Sunday. "Anyone who says words hurt has never been punched in the face.”
