The shocking moment was triggered by Rock referring to Smith’s wife, Pinkett Smith, 51, as ‘G.I. Jane’ due to her shaven head.
He’s now being slammed by viewers over the ‘disgusting’ comments he made about the Smiths – and it’s led to one source speaking out.

In the comedy show, Rock addresses the couple’s Red Table Talk show and how it discusses Pinkett Smith’s affair.
He says: “We all been cheated on. Everybody in this industry has been cheated on.
“None of us have ever been interviewed by the person that cheated on us on television. Why the f*** would you do that s***? She hurt him way more than he hurt me, OK.”

Elsewhere in the show, Rock also divulges how Pinkett Smith ‘started’ their alleged feud way back before the slap.
He claims The Nutty Professor actress attempted to force him to quit hosting the Oscars in 2016, as her husband didn’t get a Best Actor nomination.
At the time, Smith had been tipped for a nomination for his role in the film Concussion.
However, he failed to make the list of nominees.
“Years ago, his wife said I should quit the Oscars,” Rock claims.
“I shouldn’t host ’cause her man didn’t get nominated for Concussion. And then he gives me a f***ing concussion.”
Rock ignored Pinkett Smith’s alleged plea and when presenting the ceremony that year, he made a joke at the actress’ expense.
“That’s how it is – she starts it, I finish it, OK? That’s what the f*** happened. Nobody’s picking on her. She started this s***,” the comedian claims.
A source allegedly ‘close’ to Pinkett Smith has now claimed that Rock is ‘obsessed’ with her.

They tell People magazine: “Jada has had no part in all of this other than being heckled.
“Chris is obsessed with her and that’s been going on for almost 30 years.”
They then point out how Rock’s special is filmed in Baltimore, which is Pinkett Smith’s hometown.
The source then discusses how the actress started a movement with the Academy Awards by ‘questioning why there are so few Black members’.
They also deny that Pinkett Smith asked Rock to not host the Oscars, adding: “She publicly said in a Facebook post at the time Chris would be a great Oscars host and is perfect for the job.”
