According to WJZ-TV reporter Annie Rose Ramos, Rock started his set off by saying, "I'm alright. I'm alright. Healed from the nicks and bruises...for the most part."

Ramos then reported that Rock didn't address the incident for the remainder of the hour-and-a-half-long set.  

Rock had previously alluded to the idea he and his team are shopping around a first-look interview to networks that might be interested in hearing the comedian's full story.

Rock's mother Rose also recently spoke up about the slap, saying when her son was slapped, it was as if Smith was slapping "all of us."

"When he slapped Chris, he slapped all of us. He really slapped me," Rose said. "No one even heard his speech.  

No one was able to just be in the moment because everyone was sitting there like, 'What just happened?'" 

"I have directly responded to the Academy's disciplinary hearing notice, and I will fully accept any and all consequences for my conduct.  

My actions at the 94th Academy Awards presentation were shocking, painful, and inexcusable," the Oscar-winning actor said in his resignation address.
