Comedian Chris revealed during his recent show that he got offers from the Academy but said he will not return to host the Oscars in 2023.
Chris Rock was engulfed in controversy this year when actor Will Smith slapped him on stage during the 94rd Academy Awards night.
According to Arizona Republic, Chris compared hosting the Oscars to returning to the scene of a crime.
While discussing the hosting offer, he made a reference to the 1995 murder trial of O.J. Simpson, noting that it would be like asking the late Nicole Brown Simpson “to go back to the restaurant” where her mother had left a pair of glasses the night of her death.
Talking about Will, Chris said that “He is bigger than me. The state of Nevada would not sanction a fight between me and Will Smith.”
The comedian had earlier also turned down a Super Bowl ad after the slapping incident.
