Netflix Edits Chris Rock's Live Concussion Joke Flub
Chris Rock's Netflix stand-up comedy special, "Selective Outrage," includes a series of jokes about Will and Jada Pinkett Smith.
Near the end of the special, Rock made a flub where he misnamed Will Smith's movie "Concussion" as 'Emancipation.'
The streaming service has decided to edit the bit out of the on-demand version of the live program.
The exact reasons for the omission are not yet known.
Chris Rock also addressed Will Smith's slapping of him at length during his stand-up.
The Hollywood Reporter added how Jada Pinkett Smith had actually started the animosity between Rock and Smith.
It is not clear if Netflix removed the joke misfire because it would be an easy fix with editing or if the removal was due to some of Rock's quips about the married film stars.
"Chris Rock: Selective Outrage" had failed to land in the streaming service's worldwide rankings.
However, it came in at 7th place in the U.S. Top 10 rankings.
