It seems the world has taken a Chris Rock versus Will Smith mindset after the latter slapped the former earlier this week on national TV. Yet, Rock is taking the high road as evidenced by him shutting down a fan of his at a recent show when he screamed out “F**k Will Smith!”
According to People, Rock stopped a fan from being disrespectful to his latest nemesis when the 57-year-old comedian responded to his taunts by saying, “No, no, no, no, no…” This took place on the second night of his most recent Ego Death World Tour at The Wilbur in Boston on Thursday.
According to Variety, on Wednesday, the popular comedian received a standing ovation when he stepped on stage for his first stand-up show since he was slapped in the face, on stage, by a seemingly angry Smith this past Sunday.
Rock entered the stage at the Wilbur Theater wearing an all-white ensemble. He was treated to a hero’s welcome in the arena that fits 1000 people. As the sold-out audience gave him an almost two-minute standing ovation, the smiling comedian started the show by stating, “Yo, let me do the show!”
And although the comedian didn’t have much to say about the situation that transpired on Sunday, he did promise the crowd that it will be forthcoming.
He stated, “I don’t have a bunch of s**t about what happened, so if you came to hear that, I have a whole show I wrote before this weekend. I’m still kind of processing what happened. So, at some point, I’ll talk about that s**t. And it will be serious and funny.”
That was Rock’s first set off his Ego Death tour which started at a sold-out show at Boston’s Wilbur Theater. The tour will go throughout the year and is expected to close in November at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles. That venue is the same theater where the Oscars took place.
