The Louisiana comedian attended a couple parties following the show, including the famous Vanity Fair after party, with his friend and fellow comedian, David Spade.
Of course, David Spade is also a successful actor who’s been in the business for decades, and he’s good friends with Chris Rock.
Theo said the second party they went to was at some rich guy’s house, and that Jennifer Lawerence was the guy’s neighbor, and she happened to be chilling over there in her pajamas when they got there, since she’d come over to see what all the noise and commotion was.
Oscars host Chris Rock was also in attendance at the party, and struck up a conversation with David and Theo about the whole ordeal.
Theo says Chris was still shocked over the slap:
“We get to finally see Chris Rock, right, and I’m with David Spade, so Spade knows him. So they’re just kinda talkin’, and he was just shocked. He was like, ‘What the fuck happened?’
It reminded me, have you ever been at a party, and someone gets hit by somebody, and then person that hit him leaves. And there was never really like a big fight, or maybe there even was a fight, but the one dude never had any idea there was any beef or anything going on.
And then you start talking to that guy, and he’s like, ‘Bro, what the fuck happened, what do you think?’ That’s kinda how it was, he was just like, ‘What the fuck happened?'”
Theo noted that he didn’t think Chris knew about Jada’s alopecia, which was the joke that got Will so riled up to begin with.
He also mentioned that he was impressed Chris didn’t let it keep him down, and he even showed up without a cast on his face or anything indicating he’d even been hit:
“We ended up at the party, and then Rock was there, which I thought was a cool move. He’s at the party, he’s not like duckin’ anything, you know?
I think he thought it was really weird. He didn’t look, like, effected, he didn’t have like a little cast on his jaw or nothin’, you know… Rock took it like a champ bruh, I agree. He took it like a champ.”
David also weighed in on the situation on his own podcast, Fly on the Wall, earlier this week, saying he didn’t think Will should’ve been allowed to get up on stage and accept his Best Actor awardfor his starring role in King Richard:
“I honestly just don’t think he should have been able to go get his award. I hate to say it, but there’s got to be some consequence because you shouldn’t be allowed to do that.”
