Chris Rock has finally addressed Will Smith's apology video to him, and the comedian is not holding back.
During one of his joint stand-up shows with fellow comic Dave Chappelle, Rock, 57, went so far as to call Smith's emotional apology from July "a hostage video".
According to AceShowbiz, Rock told his audience: "F--k your hostage video," said Rock, who also claimed that Smith, 53, had acted like the "perfect man for 30 years" before showing he is "just as ugly as the rest of us".

While on stage at the M&S Bank Arena in Liverpool, UK, Rock also referred to Smith as "Suge Smith", referencing the imprisoned Death Row Records executive Suge Knight.
In 2018, Knight was convicted of voluntary manslaughter for the murder of iconic rapper and music producer Dr Dre.
In verbatim comments from AceShowbiz, Rock reportedly told his audience: "Will did the impression of a perfect person for 30 years, and he ripped his mask off and showed us he was as ugly as the rest of us.
"Whatever the consequences are... I hope he doesn't put his mask back on again, and lets his real face breathe. I see myself in both men."

Smith famously stormed the Oscars stage and struck Rock back in March, after the comic made an insensitive joked about the actor's wife, Jada Pinkett Smith.
While presenting an award on the night, Rock joked about Pinkett Smith's bald hairstyle, apparently not knowing she has alopecia – a health condition that causes people to lose hair rapidly from areas on their head, or all over.
In Smith's apology video, he did apologise to Rock, but also added: "I'm human, and I made a mistake... and I'm trying not to think about myself as a piece of sh-t."
He also called his behaviour "unacceptable".
"There is no part of me that thinks that was the right way to behave in that moment," he said.
"There's no part of me that thinks that's the optimal way to handle a feeling of disrespect or insults."
