Presenters, actors, actresses, singers… Everyone has commented on the slap that Will Smith gave Chris Rock at the Oscars after the comedian made fun of the alopecia suffered by his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith. The only thing left to talk about was the victim in question, and she did so during one of his monologues in Boston.
“Well how good!” he exclaimed as he walked onto the stage of the Wilbur Theater, where he was greeted with a standing ovation that left the audience standing for two minutes. After the applause, Rock began his performance with a phrase that sparked laughter from the audience: “How was your weekend?”.
After this introduction, the comedian considered the issue settled with a few brief statements: “I’m still processing what happened, so at some point I’ll talk about this shit. And it will be something serious and fun.” These words started the cry of one of the spectators, who did not wish the protagonist of ‘The Williams method’ anything good: “Fuck Will Smith!”. Rock ignored this comment and continued with his hour-long show.
On the other hand, The Hollywood Reporter reports that StubHub, relative to last month, has seen Rock tour ticket sales increase 25-fold daily after 48 hours have elapsed since the Hollywood ceremony. .
“Now that Sunday night is 48 hours away, it’s clear that demand for Chris Rock shows has increased dramatically, based on our ticketing stats on StubHub,” a spokesperson for the company told the outlet.
“At this stage of their tour, on an average day, we would expect to see a surge in sales in the 24 to 48 hours leading up to the show date as last minute sales roll in, but it’s incredibly unusual to see the spike that With daily sales notably more than 25 times higher than the average we’ve seen over the last month, we anticipate this interest will likely hold for a short while.”
