Chris Rock’s first comment since Will Smith slapped him at the Oscars.

Chris Rock made his first public appearance since Will Smith smacked him at the Oscars on Sunday night.

Hosting the latest leg of his US tour in Boston, the comic told fans that he is “still processing what happened”.

Rock, who received a standing ovation from the audience, also rejected rumors in the American media that he had spoken to Smith since the event.

Smith was asked to leave the Oscars after punching Rock, but he refused.

After the comic made a joke about Smith’s wife Jada Pinkett Smith’s shaved head, a result of the hair-loss condition alopecia, Smith slapped the comedian.

“How was your weekend?” Rock jokingly greeted the crowd at his show at Boston’s Wilbur Theatre, before saying he did not plan to address the incident at length.

The 57-year old, who is currently starring in his “Ego Death” tour of the US, told fans that he had written the “show before all this nonsense happened,” but promised to address the incident in the near future.

“I’m still kind of processing what happened, so at some point I’ll talk about that,” Rock said. “And it’ll be serious and it’ll be funny, but right now I’m going to tell some jokes.”

He also refuted rumors made by several, including rapper P. Diddy, that the two had reconciled after the event.

“I haven’t talked to anyone, despite what you heard,” Rock said.
