While he’s not defending Will Smith for slapping the comedian, Richard Madeley slams the ‘Grown Ups’ star for being ‘consistently unbelievably rude’ during an interview to promote his 2005 movie ‘Madagascar’.
AceShowbiz –Chris Rock didn’t leave a positive impression on his meeting with an interviewer. The comedian has been called about by “Good Morning Britain” host Richard Madeley for his alleged “rude” behavior during an interview that took place almost two decades ago.
During Monday, March 6’s live taping of the British talk show, Richard and co-host Susanna Reid discussed Chris’ Netflix special “Chris Rock: Selective Outrage” which premiered over the weekend. When talking about Will Smith‘s Oscars slap, Richard recalled Chris’ interview to promote his 2005 movie “Madagascar” with his co-star Ben Stiller.
“I’m not defending what happened to him, it’s wrong, completely wrong. But in 50 years in this game, he is the rudest man I’ve ever had to interview, Chris Rock,” Richard said. “I have to say, it stands out in my memory. He was just consistently unbelievably rude. A thoroughly unpleasant piece of work.”
He jokingly noted, “I didn’t smack him though, I kept my hands to himself.”
In his Netflix special, Chris addressed Will’s slap. “You know what people say, they say, ‘words hurt,’ ” he said early in the set. “Anybody that say words hurt has never been punched in the face.”
The “Grown Ups” star pointed out his and Will’s size difference, saying that Will played Muhammad Ali while he played Pookie in “New Jack City“. “Yes it hurt. It still hurts. I got ‘Summertime’ ringing in my ears. My f**king drums bleed,” so he claimed.
He then made a reference to Jada Pinkett Smith‘s entanglement with August Alsina. He joked that Will practices “selective outrage” by slapping him instead of the singer, who had an affair with his wife. “Everyone called Will a b***h, ” for putting up with Jada’s affair, “but I’m the one he hit,” he said. “A n***a knows he can beat. That is some b***h a** s**t.”
Despite the pain from the slap, Chris stressed, “But I’m not a victim, baby. You’ll never see me on Oprah or Gayle, crying. You will never see it. Never gonna happen.” He ended the show by responding to people who asked him why he didn’t fight back at the time. “Because I got parents. Because I was raised. And you know what my parents taught me? Don’t fight in front of white people,” he said before signing off.
