Chris Rock has declined to host Oscar 2023 Ceremony

If you are not living under a rock, you must be aware of the moment when Will Smith slapped Chris Rock during the Oscars 2022. While presenting a category on stage, Will Smith smacked the comic for making a crude remark about his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith.

Chris Rock claimed that the Academy Awards had asked him to host the Oscars in 2023, but he had turned them down.

After this incident, the Academy Awards banned Smith from participating in any official event for ten years and thanked Rock for his stillness. And based on what has come to light over the past several hours, they have once more offered the comic the position of the presenter, which he has declined. This was disclosed by him at a stand-up performance in Phoenix, Arizona.

Smith recently returned to talk about what happened on the night of the Oscars, apologizing publicly to Chris Rock with a video posted on social media.
