“I f**ked up” – Netflix Removes One of Chris Rock’s Joke on Will Smith from ‘Selective Outrage’ over a Movie Confusion

The awaited stand-up special by Chris Rock finally landed on Netflix. But the much entertaining live special had a little goof up. Nearly a year after the Oscars incident, expectations of him mentioning Will Smith were met with multiple bold jokes. But even the best of comedians make mistakes, and after a year of silence, Rock was no exception.

Considering the anticipation of selective outrage as well as Will Smith’s weightage, Netflix quickly corrected the mistake. For those who watched the session recently, the mistake cannot be seen since the OTT platform edited it out. But here is how the goof-up actually happened.

How Chris Rock messed up a Will Smith joke in Selective Outrage

Ahead of the Oscar Awards, Chris Rock’s perfectly time live stand-up dropped on Netflix. But as per EW, he realised he had made a mistake when delivering a joke about the Smith couple. “No, not Emancipation. I f**ked up the joke, ” he corrected himself immediately. Netflix carefully edited the part out, resulting in a smooth stream of jokes. This joke led the audience to realize why the stand-up even got named Selective Outrage.

While taking a jibe at the Oscar-winning actor, Rock explained how Jada Pinkett Smith wanted the comedian to ban the Academy Awards. Mrs. Smith wanted to boycott the Awards because her husband was not nominated for Best Actor for his leading role in the 2015 true-based movie Concussion. She asked the comedian to ban the award ceremony as well. Instead of mentioning Concussion, Rock accidentally named Smith’s 2022 movie Emancipation.
