In Chris Rock's first comedy show after Will Smith released a new video apologizing for slapping him at the 2022 Oscars, the comedian joked about the slap — but didn't address Smith's apology.

Hours after Smith's video apology for slapping the comedian on live television at March's Oscars ceremony, Rock, 57, took the stage at the Fox Theatre in Atlanta.

"Everybody is trying to be a f---ing victim," Rock said. "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." (Rock's reference of Smith as "Suge Smith" appeared to be a play on the name of currently jailed Death Row Records CEO Suge Knight.)

"Anyone who says words hurt has never been punched in the face," Rock added during the show, which is one of several he is performing at the Fox Theatre through Sunday, as part of his Ego Death World Tour.

In his apology video, the King Richard actor said, in part, "I will say to you, Chris, I apologize to you. My behavior was unacceptable, and I'm here whenever you're ready to talk."

Smith, 53, also revealed he received a message back that Rock was "not ready to talk" and would "reach out" when he was.

During the show, Rock also referred to Smith, 53, as “Suge Smith,” a possible reference to the currently-incarcerated Death Row Records CEO Suge Knight.

Will Smith isn't done apologizing for his shocking and unforgettable slap of Chris Rock at the 2022 Oscars in March. And in a new video posted to his Instagram and YouTube pages, the actor answers some questions he's been repeatedly asked about the situation in the months since. This includes clearing up one misconception about the incident that involves his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith. It's also the first time he's spoken about the slap at length, aside from a statement he posted after the ceremony.The video, posted on July 29, begins with text that reads:

At the March 27 ceremony, before his win for Best Actor, Smith walked onstage and slapped Rock across the face after taking issue with a joke about wife Jada Pinkett Smith's shaved head. (Jada, 50, lives with alopecia.)

The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air alum explained in a statement days later that the punchline was "too much for me to bear" and he "reacted emotionally."

Smith, who later resigned from the Academy and was banned from attending their ceremonies for the next 10 years, said in his statement, "I would like to publicly apologize to you, Chris."

"I was out of line and I was wrong," he added. "I am embarrassed and my actions were not indicative of the man I want to be. There is no place for violence in a world of love and kindness."

In the time since the Oscars, Rock has made brief jokes at stand-up performances referencing the moment, but he hasn't yet spoken about it in length. He has said he'll "talk about it at some point" eventually.

In his Friday video, Smith said, "I spent the last three months replaying and understanding the complexities and nuances of what happened."

"I'm not gonna try to unpack all of that right now but I can say to you, there was no part of me that thought that was the right way to behave in that moment," he added.

Reps for Rock have not responded to PEOPLE's request for comment about Smith's Friday video.
