Daniel Radcliffe Says He’s ‘Dramatically Bored of Hearing People’s Opinions’ on Will Smith Slap
Everyone recently has been weighing in on Will Smith slapping Chris Rock at the Oscars this past Sunday, and Daniel Radcliffe is sick of it.
In a recent appearance on Good Morning Britain, the actor didn't hold back when asked about the incident.
“I saw it. I’m just so already dramatically bored of hearing people’s opinions about it that I just don’t wanna be another opinion adding to it,” Radcliffe said.
Radcliffe's comments echoed those of Donald Glover, who did not address the incident during a recent appearance on Jimmy Kimmel. “To me, I don’t even really wanna get into it. It’s like, whatever. People are already tired of it,” he said. “People are like, ‘Dang, I gotta read another article. It’s been eight articles already.’ And also, like, I’ve had a lot of stuff happen to me while I was telling jokes on stage, that kind of thing.”
The slap may feel like it happened a long time ago, but the discourse around it shows no signs of slowing down. A public apology was released by Smith on Instagram the following day, and Rock addressed it at his comedy show in Boston on Wednesday, saying that he is still trying to process what happened.
“How was your weekend?” he began. “I don’t have a bunch of shit about what happened, so if you came to hear that, I have a whole show I wrote before this weekend. I’m still kind of processing what happened. So, at some point I’ll talk about that shit. And it will be serious and funny.”
