Chris Rock breaks cover at Oscars viewing party a year on from Will Smith slap

On Sunday night, Rock made a surprise appearance at a viewing party in Miami for the 95th Academy Awards.

The party was co-sponsored by Xeomin, a prescription medicine injected into muscles and used to temporarily decrease frown lines between the eyebrows.

Keeping far away from the star-studded event, Rock opted for a casual viewing party wearing a white jumper, black trousers, cap and sunglasses.

He seemed at ease as he was greeted by a long hug from fellow comedian Whitney Cummings, 40.

Rock beamed while standing with Whitney who held a microphone while hosting the party.

“Chris Rock is in the f—ing building!”

The comic’s arrival was so unexpected that Whitney Cummings,shouted into the microphone

Audiences around the world were stunned last year as Smith, 54, marched onto the stage and slapped Rock, 58, after he made a joke about his wife Jada Pinkett Smith.

Smith, 54, walked onstage and slapped Rock last March during the 94th Academy Awards in Hollywood after he cracked a joke about Smith’s wife Jada Pinkett Smith, 51.

The Infamous slap marred the awards ceremony and Smith was banned from attending the Oscars for 10 years.

Smith as part of his banishment was forced to give up the honor of presenting the Best Actor award at this year’s ceremony after winning Best Actor last year for King Richard, which he accepted after slapping Rock.

Rock addressed the incident with Smith in his recent Netflix comedy special, Selective Outrage. “He trained for and played Muhammad Ali. I played Pookie in New Jack City, we are not the same,” he joked.
