Will Smith slapping Chris Rock at the Oscars this past Sunday has had everyone and their mother (literally) giving their two cents on the incident, and Daniel Radcliffe is sick of it.

The actor was on Good Morning Britain recently, where he didn’t hold back when asked about the incident. 

“I saw it. I’m just so already dramatically bored of hearing people’s opinions about it that I just don’t wanna be another opinion adding to it,” Radcliffe said at around the 7-minute mark of the video above. 

Radcliffe’s comments echoed those of Donald Glover, who also declined to get into the incident while talking to Jimmy Kimmel recently. “To me, I don’t even really wanna get into it. It’s like, whatever. People are already tired of it,” he said. “People are like, ‘Dang, I gotta read another article. It’s been eight articles already.’ And also, like, I’ve had a lot of stuff happen to me while I was telling jokes on stage, that kind of thing.”

While the slap feels like it happened ages ago, the discourse around it shows no signs of slowing down. Smith released a public statement the following day on Instagram apologizing to Rock and the Academy for his actions, and Rock addressed it at his comedy show in Boston on Wednesday, saying he’s still “processing what happened.”

“How was your weekend?” he began, as reported by Variety. “I don’t have a bunch of shit about what happened, so if you came to hear that, I have a whole show I wrote before this weekend. I’m still kind of processing what happened. So, at some point I’ll talk about that shit. And it will be serious and funny.”
