Outrage wasn’t the only “selective” thing about Chris Rock’s latest Netflix special, Selective outrage.
On March 4, the 58-year-old comedian released the special on Netflix, the streamer’s first global live event.
Chris joked about everything from cancel culture to the Kardashians and his relationship with his kids. And, most notably, the special was the first time he fully addressed the infamous 2022 Oscars slap.
Honestly, none of the special’s jokes stood out as unique until Chris reminded us that it was actually a live event by missing his biggest joke of the night.
He first shouted, “Years ago his wife said I should quit the Oscars; I shouldn’t host because her man wasn’t nominated for Emancipation, the biggest shit of all time! And then he admitted he screwed up. “Not EmancipationI screwed up the joke.
Chris then corrected himself to reference the alleged conversation that sparked this feud: “She started this shit. She said I, a fucking adult, should quit her job because “My husband wasn’t nominated for Concussion.'”
According entertainment tonight, Will responded to the special. A source close to ET said: “Will is embarrassed and hurt by what Chris said about him and his family in his Netflix special. He hasn’t watched it, but people have told him what Chris said. .”
Hopefully, after this year’s 2023 Oscars, we can finally put the slap behind us and move on to other issues.
And besides, I’m more pissed off when Chris said in the Netflix special that he was playing a Zebra in Madagascar (true) and Will played a shark in shark story (FAKE). No he hasn’t. Jack Black was Lenny the shark and Will was a wimpy fish named Oscar.
Netflix should have removed this error.
