Newsreader: Ticket sales for Chris Rock’s upcoming comedy tour have soared in recent days, following the incident with Will Smith at the Oscars.
Newsreader: Smith, 53, struck Rock, 57, in the face live on television during the 94th Academy Awards ceremony. The comedian had made a comment about Jada Pinkett Smith, Will Smith’s wife, in which he appeared to make fun of her hair loss condition.
Newsreader: Prices for Rock’s first show following the scandal rose from $46 to $411. TickPick, a website providing tickets for live events, claimed to have sold more tickets on the night following the Oscars ceremony than in the past month combined.
Newsreader: After striding across the stage to slap Rock, Smith sat back down and warned the comedian not to talk about his wife in an angry outburst. Rock had previously joked about Jada after the 2016 Oscars, which she boycotted as part of a protest.
Newsreader: Forty minutes after the incident, Smith was back on stage to collect the Best Actor award for his portrayal of Richard Williams, father to Serena and Venus, in the film King Richard. The Oscar win – his first – was overshadowed by his emotional acceptance speech.
Newsreader: Video footage of the moment in which Smith struck Rock received over 65 million views within 24 hours, and prompted online debate. Smith was, largely, condemned for his actions. He has since apologised.
