Dave Chapelle, Rock’s Good Friend At The Screening

Among the notable visitors, Rock’s close friend Dave Chapelle drew our attention. Rock was recently slapped by Will Smith at the Oscars after his joke was not positively received by Smith, which caused a lot of controversy and resulted in Smith’s being barred from the awards for ten years. This is Smith’s first significant movie release since the slap incident.

Although it’s unclear how Dave arrived at the screening, it may be deduced that he doesn’t want to become involved in the Will-Rock dispute.

Will Smith shared a photo on Instagram with other people who attended the screening, calling it an “epic night.”
