Will Smith is finally reacting to Chris Rock’s latest standup special.

Over the weekend, Netflix released the comedian’s latest special ‘Selective Outrage’ which features his response to getting slapped by the actor in one of the most viral moments in TV history last year at the Oscars.

During the special, Rock mocked Will and Jada Pinkett Smith for openly telling the world about their relationship.

“We’ve all been cheated on — everybody in here has been cheated on — none of us have been interviewed by the person that cheated on us on television.”

Rock ended the special by taking shots at Will for slapping him.

While Jada Pinkett Smith’s camp has reportedly said they are not happy about the special, Will is apparently embarrassed about Rock’s performance and wishes “Chris would let it go,” according to a report from Entertainment Weekly.

“Will is embarrassed and hurt by what Chris said about him and his family in his Netflix special. He didn’t watch it, but he had people tell him what Chris said …

It’s everywhere when you look online and on social media, so Will and Jada have seen comments about it … Will apologized to Chris and would like for Chris to let it go.”
