While Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith have spoken on Sunday night's wild Oscars incident, Chris Rock had not - until tonight.

Rock, performing at his first show since the incident, briefly addressed a Boston crowd regarding what happened at The Academy Awards.

The popular comedian said he didn't have much to say on what happened, other than he is still "processing" it. Rock added that he will discuss what happened in detail at some point, though he's not ready to do that yet.

“I don’t have a bunch of shit about what happened, so if you came to hear that, I have a whole show I wrote before this weekend. I’m still kind of processing what happened. So, at some point I’ll talk about that shit. And it will be serious and funny.”

The crowd in Boston gave Rock a standing ovation before his show. Ticket prices for the event surged following the Sunday night incident at The Oscars.

However, it's clear that Rock isn't interesting in diving into what happened between him and Will Smith.

Not yet, anyway.
