Daniel Radcliffe has had enough of hearing about Will Smith's Oscars slap.
The Harry Potter alum appeared on Good Morning Britain to promote his new film The Lost City and declined to discuss the now-infamous Slappening.
We are, of course, referring to that shocking moment when Will Smith stormed the stage of the 94th Academy Awards to slap comedian Chris Rock over a joke about his wife Jada Pinkett-Smith's baldness.
Pinkett-Smith suffers from alopecia, a hair loss condition.
Radcliffe expressed his utter disinterest in the slap saga to hosts Susanna Reid and Ben Shephard.
“I’m just so already dramatically bored of hearing people’s opinions about it that I just don’t want to be another opinion adding to it,” the 32-year-old actor said.
The former child star did however comment on what it is actually like to be the focus of jokes at an award ceremony.
“When you’re going on stuff as a kid you’re never quite sure if the joke’s with you or you’re the butt of the joke,” Radcliffe said.
“So you sort of have a mode of just being like ‘I’ll just keep smiling and laughing and maybe it’ll end soon.'”

The Harry Potter star was also asked if he texted his former co-star Kenneth Branagh after his Oscar win, who played Gilderoy Lockhart in Harry Potter And The Chamber Of Secrets.
“No, I don’t have his number, is that a terrible thing to admit?” Radcliffe admitted.
The Boy Who Lived also shot down rumours of his return to franchise films.
Radcliffe is a fan-favourite to take over Wolverine when Marvel reboots the X-Men films.
Good Morning Britain even mocked up their own version of Radcliffe in Photoshop as the adamantium-clawed mutant.
“I keep getting asked about it, and I always try and be like ‘No, it’s not happening, it’s just a Twitter rumor,’” he said.
“And everyone keeps taking that as confirmation.
"It’s just fan theory at the moment, but I welcome the comparison. Who wouldn’t want to be compared to Hugh Jackman?”
We have to admit, Radcliffe makes a good point there.
"Never say never, but that sounds like I’m almost inviting it," he said.
"I’m sure that Marvel’s watching, being like, ‘We’re not thinking about you, dude, don’t ask us.’”
The Lost City, starring Radcliffe, Sandra Bullock, Channing Tatum, and Brad Pitt will be out in cinemas on April 14.
