Kate Middleton ‘should have slapped son’ to distract from Chris Rock’s Oscars slap, jokes David Spade

Stand-up comedian David Spade has joked that Kate Middleton should have “slapped” Prince Louis at the Platinum Jubilee to distract from Chris Rock’s slap from Will Smith at this year’s Oscars.

Speaking of the incident during an episode of Hotboxin’ with Mike TysonSpade, 58, joked that the Duchess of Cambridge should have followed the example of Smith by slapping her four-year-old son at the royal pageant.

“Her kid, who’s like three, is being kind of ad**k, you know, making faces and telling her to shut up and everything,” the actor said, referring to the young prince’s behavior towards his mother at the event.

“I thought it would help Chris so much if she slapped the kid,” he added.

the Tommy Boy star also said that, had Kate slapped her son, it would have been “heard around the world,” with Rock’s coming in second.

He said his Saturday Night Live co-star would “love to get that off the books. To just have Kate go *makes slapping sounds*… even backhand I’d be fine with.”

Immediately after Smith slapped Rock for making a joke about his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, at the Academy Awards, Spade – a longtime friend of the comedian – came to his defense on social media.

In a recent apology video, shared to YouTube on Friday (29 July), Smith addressed the Rock, whom he says has declined to speak with him directly.

He said: “I will say to you, Chris, I apologise to you. My behavior was unacceptable, and I’m here whenever you’re ready to talk.”

But his first comedy show since the release of a new apology video issued by the Fresh Prince of Bel Air star, Rock joked about the slap as it took to the stage at the Fox Theater in Atlanta.

“Everybody is trying to be af***ing victim,” Rock, 57, said, according to people.

“If everybody claims to be a victim, then nobody will hear the real victims. Even me getting smacked by Suge Smith … I went to work the next day, I got kids.”
