Will Smith ’embarrassed’ over Chris Rock Netflix special: report

Will Smith was left “embarrassed and hurt” over Chris Rock’s comments in his latest Netflix special, according to a report.

The famed funnyman used his latest Netflix special to verbally clobber Smith for slapping him onstage at last year’s Oscars ceremony.

Among the myriad of digs at the Oscar winner in his comedy special, titled “Chris Rock: Selective Outrage,” Rock left no stone unturned as he recalled the moment the “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” actor struck him across the face.

“Will is embarrassed and hurt by what Chris said about him and his family in his Netflix special,” a source told Entertainment Tonight.

“He didn’t watch it, but he had people tell him what Chris said,” the insider went on, adding that “Will and Jada (Pinkett Smith) have seen comments about it.”

“Will apologized to Chris and would like for Chris to let it go,” the source added.

Smith reportedly feels Netflix made a “disgraceful” move airing Rock’s special.

The Post has reached out to Smith’s reps for comment.

During last year’s Oscars live broadcast, Smith, 54, walked onto the stage and slapped Rock after the comedian made a joke about the actor’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith.

Rock, 58, compared Pinkett Smith — who has alopecia and shaved her head last summer — to Demi Moore’s bald character “G.I. Jane,” prompting a physical reaction from Smith.

“Keep my wife’s name out of your f–king mouth!” Smith then shouted — twice — after returning to his seat.

During Saturday’s stand-up live stream, Rock made a series of remarks about Smith’s explosive reaction.

The funnyman accused Smith of venting anger over his wife’s May to December affair with singer August Alsina, which the couple later discussed on her online “Red Table Talk” show.

“Everybody in the world called him a b–h,” Rock said of Smith. “Everybody. Everybody. And who’s he hit? Me. A n—a he know he could beat. That is some b—h-ass s—t.”

“Everybody f–king knows. Yes! It happened. I got smacked like a year ago,” he said. “I got smacked in the f–king Oscars by this motherf—ker!”

“People like, ‘Did it hurt?’ It still hurts! I got ‘Summertime’ ringing in my ears!” Rock went on, referring to Smith’s 1991 hip-hop hit with former musical partner DJ Jazzy Jeff.

“But I’m not a victim, baby. You will never see me on Oprah or Gayle [King], crying.”

After the audience erupted in cheers and applause, Rock boasted, “No. It’s never gonna happen. No. F–k that s–t. I took that hit like [former professional boxer Manny] Pacquiao.”

Less than an hour after the slap, Smith won the Best Actor Oscar for his role in “King Richard,” and even received a standing ovation from the audience.

Smith has since resigned from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences following the uproar about his actions.

He was also banned from attending any academy events for the next 10 years.

The Academy recently spoke out about the incident, admitting its handling of the ordeal was “inadequate.”

The Academy Awards take place on March 12.
