A "Good Morning Britain" host slammed Chris Rock in response to "Selective Outrage."

Good Morning Britain host Richard Madeley slammed Chris Rock on air earlier this week as the "rudest man" he ever interviewed. The comments came following the release of Rock's latest stand-up comedy special for Netflix, Selective Outrage.

"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," Madeley said, referring to the infamous Oscars slap. He then recalled how he spoke with Rock alongside Ben Stiller while they were promoting the 2005 film, Madagascar. "I have to say, it stands out in my memory. He was just consistently unbelievably rude. A thoroughly unpleasant piece of work." He joked: "I didn’t smack him though, I kept my hands to himself." His co-host remarked that they should try to bring Rock on the show to address the incident, to which Madeley agreed.

As for his comedy special, Chris Rock touched on several headline-grabbing topics throughout his time on stage. Perhaps most notably, Rock finally fired back at Will Smith for slapping him at the Oscars in 2022. In doing so, he brought up Jada Pinkett Smith's infamous "entanglement" with August Alsina. "We all been cheated on. Everybody in here has been cheated on. None of us have ever been interviewed by the person that cheated on us on television,’ Rock said, referring to the episode of Red Table Talk in which the couple discusses the affair.

After the special aired, Page Six reported that August Alsina enjoyed the jokes about his romance with Jada Pinkett Smith; however, a representative for the singer later denied the story. “Mr. Alsina has not seen Chris Rock’s special at all, as he’s been busy on tour,” the rep said. Elsewhere in Selective Outrage, Smith joked about his daughter's school as well as Meghan Markle’s accusations against the British royal family, and more.
