Steve Harvey Opens Up About Will Smith Oscars Slap During Speech At Atlanta Law School

At this point, it feels like just about everyone has had something to say about Will Smith’s Oscars slap. Celebrities ranging from Jim Carrey to Zoë Kravitz have responded since Smith slapped Chris Rock at the 94th Academy Awards. Responses to the situation have varied, with some chastising the Best Actor winner and others coming to his defense. Steve Harvey has become one of the latest to share thoughts and did so while speaking at an Atlanta law school.

The media personality was giving a keynote address at Georgia State University, where he discussed various topics with law students. Those who watch and listen to the Family Feud staple know that he rarely minces words when speaking on a subject, and this was the case when he weighed in on Will Smith’s actions at the awards ceremony. Putting himself in the shoes of fellow comedian Chris Rock, the former radio host explained that he would ‘ve reacted differently had he been slapped:

I’m a Christian but I’m really undeveloped. I don’t have high-level Christianity. On a scale of 1 to 10, I’m like a 2. That’s the level of Christianity I can work on. You slap TD Jakes, he’ll turn the other cheek. You slap me? If you sit back in your seat, Jada [Will’s wife] would have to move out of the way. That’s the type of Christian I am.
