Forever G.O.A.T. Kevin Hart gave his buddy Chris Rock a special animal during their recent comedy show together—and named him “Will Smith.”
The incident with Will Smith and Chris Rock at the Oscars in 2022: everything you need to know
The 43-year-old actor presented 57-year-old Rock with a goat at the end of his show “Rock Heart: Only Headliners are allowed” at New York’s Madison Square Garden on Saturday, July 23, referring to the abbreviation “The Greatest of all time.” When fellow comedian Dave Chappelle, who joined the couple on stage, asked the goat’s name, Hart quickly jumped up and stated, “My name is Will Smith.”
The audience burst into laughter at the mention of Rock’s quarrel with the 53-year-old King Richard star at the 94th Annual Academy Awards ceremony in March. Smith shocked people when he hit the comedian after he joked about his wife Jada Pinkett-Smith’s shaved head. The 50-year-old Girls Trip star, who spoke candidly about her diagnosis of alopecia, rolled her eyes at the comment before her husband responded.
Although Hart later noticed on Tuesday, July 26, during his appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, how his friend “almost broke down and cried” when he brought the animal on stage, one part of the trick did not go so well.

“The goat screwed up on stage,” the “Night School” actor told host Jimmy Fallon. “It wasn’t planned either. That’s the only thing I didn’t think of. I said: “The goat will come out and spend two minutes firmly,” but instead he sat on Chris’ shoes. He destroyed Chris’ shoes. He was wearing some kind of white moon boots, and this goat got him.
The MCG event wasn’t the first time Hart had discussed the differences between his comedian friends. According to an eyewitness, the Philadelphia native began his Reality Check tour on July 9, briefly mentioning the incident between Smith and Rock during a performance. “Will Smith didn’t plan this shit,” he said during his Atlantic City show at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino.

“Yeah, it hurts, motherfucker,” the “Fargo” actor continued. “But I shook off that shit and went to work the next day… I don’t go to the hospital because of the cuts.”
