He further wrote, “We’d all be talking about Coda winning best picture or waiting on updates from the ICU”.

From his tweet, it is not clear whether he wrote it in support of Rogan or as a dig at him. It is a known fact that Rogan is great at martial arts, whereas Smith’s action movies are famous. Thus, it is unclear as to whom Norris was referring would end up in the ICU. Hence, Twitter users have been debating about the same.

Smith went on to apologize to Rock for his behavior. While Smith’s action at the Oscars was questioned by many, Rogan is another personality that has largely divided the masses. His podcast has several fans as well as people who have issues with the content discussed. Hence, Norris’ stance on Rogan is not clear.

Rogan has, however, not responded to Dean Norris. It would be interesting to see whether either of them takes it further.
