Chris Rock turned down the offer to host the Oscar ceremony

Chris Rock has been in the news since the slap scandal at the 94th Oscar Awards Ceremony. Recent media reports said that Chris has refused to host the Oscar ceremony to be held in the year 2023. Chris himself has given this information in one of his comedy shows.
Actually, Hollywood star Will Smith slapped Chris on stage at the Oscars ceremony held in March this year. Due to this reason, he has turned down this offer from the academy.
According to the Arizona Republic, Chris had a show at the Arizona Financial Theater in Phoenix, Arizona on Sunday. During this, while talking to me, I got an offer to host Oscar 2023. But I have refused. Because the same thing happened that you are being asked to go to the same place where he died.
Will Smith slapped comedian Chris Rock on stage during the Oscar Awards 2022. Chris Rock jokes about Will's wife's baldness. Sitting next to his wife, Will felt very bad about this and he went on stage and gave Chris a loud slap. However, after this Will apologized to Chris twice.
Apologizing for the second time, Will said – I lost my mental balance at the Oscar event. I don't know what I was thinking, I was confused too. I took out Chris's number and also messaged him to talk to him. However, he is not ready to talk. He said, "I'll talk to you when I'm in a position to talk." Chris, I apologize to you too. I know my behaviour was not acceptable. Whenever you want to talk, I am here. Will also apologized to Chris Rock's mother further in the video.
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (Oscars) banned Will Smith on Friday. After this decision, Will will not be able to participate in any Oscar program for the next 10 years. At the same time, Will said that he respects the decision of the Academy and he accepts the decision.
Academy President David Rubin said the decision was made because of Chris Rock being slapped on stage during this year's Oscars ceremony. The Board of Governors has also agreed to this decision. David said that after the incident, Will was allowed to sit at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood and was presented with an award, prompting criticism from the Academy.
Will resigned from the Academy of Motion Pictures on March 29 after slapping the comedian. In his statement after the resignation, Will said that the action he had done was very shameful and shocking. I apologize to all those to whom I have caused pain. I have betrayed the trust of the Academy. Whatever decision the board takes, I will accept it.
