Andy Cohen Was “So Impressed” By Chris Rock’s Composure After Will Smith Slap

Earlier this week, Will Smith reminded many of us that the Oscars were even on TV. In case you live under a rock, the actor shockingly slapped host Chris Rock mid-monologue during the awards show. The slap heard ’round the world has prompted quite the response. Haters will say it’s fake. Most people are condemning Will for stooping to violence during such a classy event. It’s been the most buzz-worthy moment at the Academy Awards for a while, so there’s been plenty of discourse about it.

The outburst from Will came as a result of Chris making a joke about Jada Pinkett Smith’s bald hairdo. Chris related Jada to GI Jane, and Will was upset because his wife has alopecia which results in hair loss. Every reality star with a podcast has been offering their opinions about the moment that looked like a scene from a Real Housewives reunion. Even though Andy Cohen wasn’t in the room, he recently gave his two cents about Will Smith’s viral moment.

In general, Andy told Access that he was pretty saddened by Will’s public display of anger.”It’s not necessarily what you want to see at the Oscars,” Andy said. He did commend Chris Rock’s reaction to getting slapped on Hollywood’s biggest night. “I was so impressed with his composure,” Andy added. Andy always has strong opinions but tends to keep it pretty neutral like a good TV host.

Andy may have been shoved by Teresa Giudice during a Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion, but that’s nothing compared to this. I wonder if he would have reacted like Chris Rock, or went full Jen Shah/Lisa Barlow meltdown mode on Will Smith. I’d bet that he’d keep his cool, but that’s pretty tough when anyone slaps you in the face in public. He’s probably just happy his national TV scandal involved him getting drunk alongside Anderson Cooper on New Year’s Eve. That’s a walk in the park compared to what these two A-list movie stars will be going through until the buzz from this dies down.
