The news of Will Smith slapping Chris Rock on the 94th Oscar awards 2022 for making a joke on his wife Jada Pinket Smith is the talk of the town in recent days. Meanwhile, many news and fake news related are all over the internet.

Again a claim is getting viral stating that Chris Rock issued an apology statement to Jada and her family.

The tweet reads, “Chris Rock issues statement regarding the incident with Will Smith during the 94th Academy Awards.”

This is what the tweet looked like:

Facebook too is filled with the same claim.

Fact Check:

We at DFRAC, reverse searched this image and found that no such statement was issued from the official Website, FacebookPage or Twitter handle of Rock.

Also when we searched the keywords. We found a tweet by @ThatRebecca, The Hollywood Reporter Senior Film Editor, alumna Vanity Fair, LA Times, Time, author of books on Young Frankenstein + James Cameron.

Chris Rock has not yet issued a statement. There is a statement going around purporting to be from Rock that is not from him, per his team. It’s the one that starts, “As a comedian, it can be difficult to understand.” The Tweet reads.

Conclusion:

The circulated picture of Rock is fake in nature as nothing like this was found on the official social media accounts of the Rock.

Claim Review: Chris Rock apologize to Jada Pinkett Smith for the joke in Oscars 2022.

Claimed by: social media Users.

Fact Check: Fake.
