Chris Rock never wants to talk about Will Smith slapping him to please his wife Jada Pinkett at the Oscars and he’s got a professional way of dodging questions from people about the slap. Page Six reports that Chris has been wearing headphones around his SoHo neighborhood to discourage people from throwing questions about the slap at him.
It’s simple, if you want Chris Rock to speak about the Oscars slap, then you’ve got to drop some colossal amount of cash into his bank account. If not, he isn’t talking about it to anyone.
PS reports that;
Sources say that Rock has been wearing headphones around his SoHo neighborhood — not because he’s pumping the new Kylie Minogue album, “Infinite Disco” — but because he’s hoping it dissuades the public from talking to him about the world’s most famous temper tantrum.
Needless to say, last month Will Smith climbed on stage at the Oscars and slapped Rock — who was presenting an award — for quipping that his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, resembled Demi Moore when she had a buzzcut in “G.I. Jane.” (Pinkett Smith recently had her head shaved because she suffering from alopecia).
And Rock is discovering that people are quite keen to share their opinions about the matter. “It looks like he’s listening to music,” laughed an insider, “but it’s just so that nobody approaches him.
He’s also having to deftly dodge the issue on stage. We’re told that Rock made an unannounced appearance Tuesday night at the Comedy Cellar in Greenwich Village, where — somewhat inevitably — he was heckled about the jaw-dropping incident.
That is a smart move by Chris.
