Adam Sandler has shown is support to Chris Rock, defending his jokes against Will Smith and calling his comedy special ‘one of the best experiences.’
Many people, however, don’t feel the same way as Sandler, and actually believed that the comedian took his jokes a step too far this time.
In his Netflix comedy special Chris Rock: Selective Outrage, the 58 year-old comedian didn’t hold back from some controversial jokes, especially ones surrounding his infamous sap from acts Will Smith.
However, others felt that it was a healthy dose of payback for the on stage assault, and it looks like Sandler agrees.
The actor defended his pal while speaking with People at the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor event on Sunday (19 March), which Rock also attended.
When asked what he thought of Rock’s Netflix special, he replied: “It’s amazing.”
On the subject of if Rock took his jokes too far, Sandler said: “Nope, I never thought that in my life. I thought he was unbelievably relaxed, funny, thoughtful. Crushed it.
“He was real to himself and it was as exciting to watch as when the Super Bowl’s on.
“I thought about it all weekend, ‘All right, Rock’s doing his thing tonight.’ Sat, watched it in my kitchen, laughed my a** off.
“Immediately watched it right after, it was one of the best experiences. I thought it was amazing.”
And it looks like a lot of people agree with him – High praise!
”Chris Rock’s special had us in fits,” said one fan.
“You are a good man Adam,” said another. “That is how you represent friendship.”
