• Fans were reminded about the slap Rock took from Will Smith back in March
• Back in May, Rock joked that he got slapped by the "softest ni**that ever rapped."
A crowd recently broke out in laughter after comedian Kevin Hart brought a goat on stage to present it as a gift to comedian Chris Rock in New York.
Kevin Hart was mocking Rock about Will Smith's infamous Chris Rock slap while also paying homage to the veteran comedian by gifting Rock a live goat named after the Fresh Prince.
Will Smith slapped him during the live telecast on 27 March after he compared his wife Jada Pinkett Smith - who has the medical condition alopecia - to G.I. Jane.
On July 23, Kevin Hart and Chris Rock performed at Madison Square Garden in New York City as part of their Rock Hart: Only Headliners Allowed Tour. The show featured a guest appearance from Dave Chappelle and a goat named Will Smith.
Videos from the incident show all three men on stage along with a goat on a leash.
"You have to keep the goat. I bought you the fucking goat," Kevin says.
"I have an apartment, Kevin. They barely let niggas in there," Chris replies.

Dave Chappelle then questions what Chris is going to name the animal. Kevin announces that the goat already has a name.
"The name is Will Smith," Kevin reveals. "What?" he questions when the crowd breaks out in laughter.

Will Smith resigned from the Oscars Academy a week after his dramatic encounter with comedian Chris Rock.
While tendering his resignation from membership in the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, Will Smith said he would accept the consequences of his actions.
