British morning show host Richard Madeley has claimed Chris Rock was the 'rudest' person he has ever interviewed.
Both Madeley and his co-host Susanna Reid agreed while chatting about Rock on Good Morning Britain on Monday that he was incredibly rude.
Reid went as far as labelling the Selective Outrage star as 'a thoroughly unpleasant piece of work'.
The 58-year-old comic has been in the headlines recently after dropping his Netflix special Selective Outrage in which he gave the world his take on the 2022 Oscars slap.
You know, the one where Will Smith stormed the stage and smacked him clean across the face after he made a little jab at Smith's wife Jada, suggesting she looked like 'GI Jane'.
Smith clearly didn't take kindly to the joke so he walked onto the stage and shockingly slapped Rock before calmly walking back to his seat.
Everyone in the auditorium, as well as those watching at home, were left gobsmacked after what happened during the glitzy ceremony.
It launched 1,000 memes and had people talking for weeks, and now The Slappening is all anyone can talk about again thanks to Rock's Netflix special.
But Madeley and Reid are firm in their belief that Rock is a bit of a stinker.
Reid, 52, recounted interviewing Rock with Ben Stiller when they were promoting Madagascar, the 2005 animated movie the two actors both voiced characters for.
She agreed with Madeley's assessment of Rock being rude, adding: "I have to say, it stands out in my memory. "He was just consistently unbelievably rude."
Madeley, 66, then went on to explain to viewers that his assessment of the American entertainer does not justify Will Smith's act of violence against him at the 2022 Academy Awards.
"I’m not defending what happened to him, it’s wrong, completely wrong. But in 50 years in this game, he is the rudest man I’ve ever had to interview, Chris Rock," he said.
He then referred to the now-infamous Slappening.
"I didn’t smack him though, I kept my hands to himself," Madeley quipped.
He then explained to British TV audiences that Rock reportedly acted in a rude way, instead of using foul language during their interview to promote Madagascar.
His co-host said: "I think we need to hear the other side of the story."
To which Madeley replied: "I’d love to do that. Bring him over! Keep my hands behind my back."
Yikes. Them's fighting words.
