Dave Chappelle Opens Up About Will Smith’s ‘Ugly’ Facet After Oscar Slap

comedy icon Dave Chappelle said Will SmithThe “mask” comes off when he slaps Chris Rock at the Oscars earlier this year, revealing something bad underneath. And he said he hoped the mask would stay.

“A lot of people forget who Will Smith is,” Chappelle said at an event with Rock in Liverpool last week, according to the Telegraph. He reminded the audience that the actor was from a rough part of Philadelphia.

“Then, 10 minutes before he was going to get the biggest award … he acted like he was back in Philadelphia,” Chappelle said.

“Will made the impression of being the perfect person for 30 years, and he ripped his mask off and showed us that he is just as ugly as the rest of us. Whatever the consequences… I hope he doesn’t put his mask back on and lets his real face breathe.”

“I saw myself in both men,” Chappelle said.

Chappelle was attacked on stage a little over a month after the Oscars. Rock is here.

Both Rock and Chappelle joked about their attack at a small club show in Los Angeles a few days later.

“At least you got slapped by someone of repute,” Chappelle said to Rock, per The Hollywood Reporter. “I was hit by a homeless man with a leaf in his hair.
