Not only that, but Chris Rock also took a dig at Smith’s wife, actress Jada Smith.

As the special made its way, several social media users started wondering how much the 58-year-old comedian earned from his Netflix gig.


According to a report by THR published in 2016, Netflix signed Chris Rock years ago and at the time, the popular streaming giant made a deal with the comedian for two shows and paid him $40 million, meaning he was paid $20 million per show.

Earlier in 2017, Chris shot his first Netflix comedy special, Chris Rock: Tamborine, which was released in 2018.

Netflix’s Chief Content Officer, Ted Sarandos, said that Rock’s unparalleled talent and the global streaming platform’s creative freedom make them a perfect match.

Sarandos further added: “Chris is a beloved actor and director, and his remarkable stand-up makes him comic royalty. There is no one like him.”

The 58-year-old personality stated: “You all know what happened to me, getting smacked by Suge Smith. Everybody knows! Everybody fuc*ing knows! Yes, it happened. I got smacked. A year ago, I got slapped at the fuc*ing Oscars by this motherfuc*er and people are like, ‘Did it hurt?’ It still hurts! I got ‘Summertime’ ringing in my ear! But I’m not a victim. You will never see me on Oprah or Gayle, crying.”
