It hasn’t been 48 hours since the Will Smith and Chris Rock incident at The Oscars and it continues to remain the hottest story in the entire country.
Many athletes and former athletes have commented about it, but Deion Sanders took it to another level.
The Jackson State head coach got behind the camera at practice Tuesday and had one question for his players and staff: “If you were Chris Rock, how would you have handled ‘The Slap?’”
One coach said he’d handle it, “Just like [Rock] did. Then we might go backstage and have some words.”
Somebody else said, “Aw man, I don’t know If I coulda took that slap like that on national TV.” While a couple others said “You know I’m from Miami, so… it might’ve gotten a little rough.” And that “Chris Rock is a better man than me.”
As for his son, Tigers QB Shedeur Sanders said he’d smack Will Smith in the back of the head when he turned around.
Will Smith has since come out and apologized to Rock publicly for his actions.
