Terry Crews Says Chris Rock ‘Saved Hollywood’ By Not Fighting Will Smith

Media Take Out Staff |

Terry Crews says that Chris Rock saved Hollywood by not reacting violently when Will Smith slapped him.

“When I look back, by what Chris did, by just deciding to hold everything together, it actually, I think in a lot of ways saved Hollywood, because if there would’ve been a brawl on that stage, I don’t know if Hollywood would’ve ever gotten any respect again, you know? It’s hard to even imagine what would’ve happened,” Crews told The Hollywood Reporter.

Will slapped Chris after he made a joke about Jada Pinkett Smith’s hair.

“The definition of toughness where I grew up and the way I was, it was always the ability to strike, the ability to punch, the ability to set things straight, to even the score,” he said. “But the true definition of toughness was what Chris did in taking a punch and then holding everything together and then showing tremendous endurance and resilience in the middle of obstacles.”
