LO SHOCK - This was revealed by the comedian himself, during an evening of his “Ego Death” tour. story is well known. Chris made a vitriolic joke about the alopecia of Jade Pinkett, Will Smith's wife, comparing her to Private Jane, played by a shaved Demi Moore. The newly awarded Oscar got up from the audience and hit him in the face and then told him not to allow himself to talk about his partner anymore. The Academy ended up banning Will from the event for ten years. Chris had returned to the subject twice, both with a joke: 'Ok, I have recovered most of my hearing,' he hissed at first. Then, during Kevin Hart's show at the NC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel, New Jersey, he used the paradox: “Whoever said words hurt never got punched in the face… I'm not a victim, though. I slipped the shit out of that shit and went to work the next day. I don't go to the hospital for a scratch '. But he now admits that the shock was too strong.

Simpson for the murder of ex-wife Nicole Brown and waiter Ronald Lyle Goldman: 'It would be like asking Nicole Brown Simpson to go back to the restaurant ...'
