Humor from Chris Rock After watching the Will Smith apology video, he was "smacked by Suge Smith."

Chris Rock continues to make joking references to the incident even though he has yet to express his feelings on being slapped by Will Smith.

After posting a nearly six-minute video apologizing for hitting Rock during the Academy Awards in March, the comedian went on stage in Atlanta on Friday night as part of his "Chris Rock Ego Death World Tour."

In the months since, Rock has made oblique references to the slap in comedy sets, but he hasn't gone into great detail about it in public. He adopted the same strategy.

The true victims won't be heard if everyone declares themselves to be a victim, according to Rock. Even after getting hit by Suge Smith, I went to work the following day because I had children.

Anyone who claims that words hurt them has never received a face punch, he subsequently remarked.

After making a joke about his alopecia-suffering wife Jada Pinkett Smith's haircut, Smith stormed the stage and struck Rock.

"Over the last few months, I've been doing a lot of thinking and personal work," reads the message at the beginning of the video that Smith posted on his social media accounts. "You asked a lot of fair questions that I wanted to take some time to answer," it continues.

Smith sighs and then talks about a fight that damaged his reputation and garnered international attention.

In his Oscar winning speech for "King Richard," he explains why he didn't apologize to Rock.

He admits, "I was fogged out at that time. "Everything is hazy."

Smith claims he tried to get in touch with Rock but that he said he wasn't ready to chat and would get back to him when he was.

My behavior was inappropriate, therefore I will say to Chris, "I'm sorry to you, and I'm here whenever you are ready to chat."

Smith also expressed his regrets to Tony Rock, who played the role of Tony Rock in the Smiths' 2007 sitcom "All of Us," as well as to his mother and family.

Smith claims, "We had a wonderful friendship." Tony Rock was my man, and I doubt this can be fixed.

Smith extends his regrets to his wife, their kids, and the rest of the Academy Award candidates.

He says, "Disappointing people is my fundamental trauma."

"I hate disappointing people, so it stings,"

Smith addresses his fans directly and pledges to "bring light, love, and joy into the globe."

He adds, "If you hold on, I swear we'll be able to be friends again.

Smith has received a penalty from the Academy in the form of a 10-year attendance ban from the Oscars. In March, Smith also expressed regret for his actions on Instagram, calling them "unacceptable and reprehensible."
