Chris Rock Jokes He Got His Hearing Back After Oscars Slap

Chris Rock joked that Will Smith had slapped him at Oscars and that he finally got his hearing restored.

“I’m okay, I have a whole series and I won’t talk about it until I get paid. It’s good. Rock said, “I got back my hearing,” at a Deadline show.

After the slap, the performer addressed the slap at an additional show:

“How was your weekend? I don’t have a bunch of sh*t about what happened, so if you came to hear that, I have a whole show I wrote before this weekend. I’m still processing what happened. So, at some point I’ll talk about that sh*t. And it will be serious and funny.” 

Will Smith was expelled from the Academy for a period of ten years.
