During the comedian’s show in Boston Thursday night, a fan made a disparaging remark about Smith, but Rock tried to tone down the hostility.
Rock began his set by talking about Smith’s slap before someone in the crowd yelled, “F--- Will Smith!” reports People.
“No, no, no, no, no,” Rock fired back.
Rock made his first public appearance after the altercation with Smith, which occurred when the comedian was presenting the award for best documentary, when he performed a pair of shows Wednesday in Boston.
“How was your weekend?” he said. “I don’t have a bunch of s--- about what happened, so if you came to hear that, I have a whole show I wrote before this weekend. I’m still kind of processing what happened. So, at some point I’ll talk about that s---. And it will be serious and funny.”
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences condemned Smith's behavior and its board of governors has opened disciplinary proceedings against him, while noting he refused to leave the show. However, a source told NBC News that a producer asked Smith to stay.
