Chris Rock Unimpressed by Will Smith's Apology

On Friday, nearly five months after slapping Chris Rock at the Academy Awards, Will Smith shared a video message apologizing to Chris, his family, the fans, and anyone else who was let down by his actions. Will also admitted he's been dealing with an incredible amount of shame [click here if you missed that].  

Chris is not impressed...

Hours after Smith's video apology for slapping the comedian on live television at March's Oscars ceremony, Rock, 57, took the stage at the Fox Theatre in Atlanta.
"Everybody is trying to be a f---ing victim," Rock said. "If everybody claims to be a victim, then nobody will hear the real victims. Even me getting smacked by Suge Smith ... I went to work the next day, I got kids." (Rock's reference of Smith as "Suge Smith" appeared to be a play on the name of currently jailed Death Row Records CEO Suge Knight.)
