In addition to the infamous Oscars slap, Rock also took aim at Smith's interview with wife Jada about her affair.

Chris Rock just mocked Will Smith during his newest comedy special on Netflix, taking aim at various topics in Smith's life. Of course, many associate the two primarily with the infamous Oscars slap, in which Rock made a joke about Will's wife Jada Pinkett Smith and her husband got up and slapped Rock across the face onstage. However, the Saturday night special (March 4) saw the actor make jokes about the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air in a lot more areas. For example, he mocked the interview where the couple talked about Jada's affair, and it resulted in mixed opinions online.

"You all know what happened... Suge Smith [slapped me]," the Hollywood star began. "Everybody knows, everybody f***ing knows. I got smacked at the f***ing Oscars by this motherf***er. And people are like "Did it hurt?" It still hurts. I got Summertime ringing in my ear f***ing drums. But I'm not a victim, you will never see me on Oprah or Gayle crying you will never see it, like, 'I couldn't believe it and I love Men in Black.' No, it's never going to happen... But Will Smith practices selective outrage because everyone that knows what happened, everybody that really knows, knows I had nothing to do with that s**t. I didn't have any entanglements. His wife was f***ing her son's friend.

"Now I normally wouldn't talk about this s**t," Rock continued. "But for some reason these n***as put that s**t on the Internet. I have no idea why two talented people would do something that f***ing low down. What the f**k? We've all been cheated on, everybody in here has been cheated on. None of us have been interviewed by the person that cheated on us on television, like 'Hey, I was sucking somebody else's d**k, how did that make you feel?' Why the f**k would you do that s**t?

"She hurt him way more than he hurt me, OK," he wrapped up. "Everybody in the world called him a b***h. I tried to call the motherf***er and give him my condolences. He wouldn't pick up for me. Everybody called him a b***h. And who is he hitting? Me, a n***a he knows he can be beat. That is some b***h a** s**t... I have rooted for Will Smith my whole life and now I watch Emancipation just to see him get whooped... A lot of people are like 'Chris why didn't you do nothing back?' Because I got parents that's why, because I was raised. And you know what my parents taught me? Don't fight in front of white people."
