Chris Rock’s new emotional look has been revealed amid a Will Smith Oscar fight that has sparked a worldwide backlash
But this weekend, the star appeared in a new emotional tribute to the late actor Bob Saget.
Chris was one of several stars to appear on the show, Dirty Daddy: The Bob Saget Tribute, which aired on Netflix on June 10.

While it was a celebration of Bob’s life, it was also emotional, as the star along with other comics including Jim Carrey, Jeff Ross and Pop Full House star John Stamos remembered the actor.
Bob’s wife Kelly Rizzo helped launch the tribute, after Jim encouraged her to “keep it short.”
While Chris kept the program light with memorable jokes, including saying, “I think it’s sad that (he) died to bring Jim Carrey back to the stage. If that’s the only way we’ll see you do it, I’m going to kill Eddie Murphy next week,” Other comments were heartbreaking.

John said he still wasn’t ready to let his friend go because the loss “doesn’t seem real,” so instead, imagine Bob doing well on his comedy tour and calling his wife afterward.
He said, “He’s back at the hotel, he’s laying his head on the pillow, and he’s missing us. And he dreams of seeing us again one day. And he’s smiling.”
Meanwhile, Jim said, “Bob was not something he took away from us. It was something that was given to us… You created a cathedral of love in this world, and that was your life, Bob Saget. A cathedral of love, a cathedral of laughter, goodness, light” .

This was one of Kris’ first appearances after the Oscars, which saw Will appear on stage to punch him in the face after he made comments about star wife Jada Pinkett Smith, who has hair loss.
However, he will be back on stage to perform in September, recently making the news out on social media.
Along with fellow comedian Dave Chappelle, they will perform in a joint show in London at the O2 Arena on 3 and 4 September.
