Comedian Chris Rock has allegedly backed away from hosting the 2023 Academy awards.
Chris reportedly made the announcement during his show at the Arizona Financial Theatre.
This would have been his 3rd time hosting the awards show.
The infamous ‘slap heard around the world’ was one of the most talked-about pop-culture moments of 2022.
Will Smith notoriously slapped the comedian after he made a ‘G.I. Jane’ joke tailored to Jada Pinkett Smith’s alopecia.
Chris Rock says he turned down hosting the Oscars next year, saying going back to the awards ceremony would be like asking Nicole Brown Simpson “to go back to the restaurant” where she left her eyeglasses before being killed https://t.co/ZjIPuhYePO
