    Comedian Chris Rock chided Will Smith after the "Fresh Prince" issued an apology for the infamous Oscars slap, saying “everybody is trying to be a f***ing victim.” The comedian addressed the situation while on his Chris Rock Ego Death world tour in Atlanta hours after Smith posted an apology video that included the King Richard actor admitting his slap of Rock over a joke about his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, was “probably irreparable.” "Everybody is trying to be a f***ing victim. If everybody claims to be a victim, then nobody will hear the real victims,” Rock said Friday night, per CNN. "Even me getting smacked by Suge Smith ... I went to work the next day, I got kids."

    Chris Rock’s younger brother Kenny refuses to accept what he sees as Will Smith’s fake apology for assaulting his brother Chris at last Sunday’s basement-rated Oscar telecast. “No, I don’t accept it because I don’t think it was genuine,” Kenny Rock told the far-left Los Angeles Times. “I think his publicist and the people that work under him probably advised him to do that.” “I might have looked at it differently had he initially apologized when he got on the stage and cried and accepted the award,” he added, “but he didn’t, so, right there that tells me that it is something else.” That’s correct. During that pathetic, teary Best Actor Oscar acceptance speech, which came about 40 minutes after he committed an unprovoked assault against Chris Rock over a silly joke, Smith apologized to the Academy and his fellow nominees, but not to the guy he hit. Kenny, one of Chris’s six siblings, added this: It eats at me watching it over and over again because you’ve seen a loved one being attacked and there’s nothing you can do...

    Will Smith’s carefully scripted apology to Chris Rock over the slap that shocked the world may have come too late to save his Oscar dream, movie insiders said last night. Almost a day had passed before Smith, 53, issued a stock ‘crisis management-style’ message saying sorry to Rock for striking him on live TV during the ceremony. But the apology on social media yesterday failed to quell calls for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to strip the star of the best actor award he collected just 20 minutes after the assault – or even kick him out. Crisis meetings, which began within minutes of the slap, continued across Los Angeles all day as the industry tried to work out what to do. Smith’s interim fate could be decided today as Academy governors meet for their usual post-Oscars debrief. However, the saga could run on until a full meeting in May.
