Chris Rock, who got slapped by actor Will Smith at the Oscars on Sunday, saw skyrocketing demand for tickets to his comedy shows following the incident. The ticket prices have also reportedly seen a significant boost over the last 24 hours.

Social media users also debated about Will Smith’s actions on Sunday, while most people were seen supporting comedian Chris Rock. Many appreciated that Chris Rock did not react with violence and instead spoke to Will Smith backstage.

TickPick, a ticket selling platform in the United States, said in a social media post that it had sold more tickets to Chris Rock’s shows in one night than in the past month combined.

According to reports from Fox News citing third-party ticket sellers, a minimum price tag of $441 has been set for Chris Rock’s stand-up comedy show at Boston’s Wilbur Theatre on Wednesday.

The Ego Death World Tour of Chris Rock will complete one full circle at Los Angeles’ Dolby Theatre– where the comedian got slapped by Will Smith— in November. The tour included more than 30 cities in North America.

Smith shocked the Dolby Theatre crowd and viewers at home when he took the stage after Rock, appearing as a presenter, joked: “Jada, I love you. ‘G.I. Jane 2,’ can’t wait to see it.”  

Will Smith later issued an apology to the comedian, to the academy and to viewers at home, saying he was “out of line” and that his actions are “not indicative of the man I want to be.”

“Violence in all of its forms is poisonous and destructive,” said Smith in a statement issued by his publicist and posted on Instagram.

“My behavior at last night’s Academy Awards was unacceptable and inexcusable. Jokes at my expense are a part of the job, but a joke about Jada’s medical condition was too much for me to bear and I reacted emotionally. I would like to publicly apologize to you, Chris. I was out of line and I was wrong.”
