of talking

about Will Smith's

infamous Oscar's slap

but he wants

to make one thing clear It hurt

Rock, 58, spoke at length

about the 2022 Academy Awards

incident during a live Netflix comedy special

You know what people say

they say

Rock said

Anybody that say words

hurt has never been punched in the face

Will Smith has since said bottled rage led to his actions.

Rock was praised for maintaining his composure following the incident.
