Chris Rock Will Speak About Slap...Once He's Paid To
Chris Rock still isn’t addressing the Oscar slap, but he did give fans in Indio, California a clue about his thought processon the subject. “I'm okay, I have a whole show, and I'm not talking about that until I get paid,” he said. “Life is good. I got my hearing back.”
The comedian went on to skewer several celebrities and politicians, including Hillary Clinton and her failure to win the presidency in 2008 and 2016, the Kardashians and how they “love Black people so much they take anyone in,” and Meghan Markle's accusations of racism in the British royal family.
Chris also took corporations to task over their diversity efforts, raising his daughters, being single again, and people feeling afraid of offending others. He got a standing ovation after ending his set with a joke about divorce while referring friends to his ex-wife’s lawyer.
