Will Smith Finally Apologizes To Chris Rock, Reaches Out To His Brother & Mother

By - - [ Entertainment ]

In an emotional video, Will Smith finally apologizes to Chris Rock over the slap incident at oscars. Four months after the headline-making incident, the actor returned to social media to answer “a lot of fair questions” and issue another apology to Rock for slapping him on stage at the 2022 Academy Awards after he made a joke about his wife Jada Pinkett smith.

In an emotional YouTube video, smith revealed why he didn’t apologize to Rock while accepting the Oscar for Best Actor for King Richard, saying he was “fogged out at that point.”

“It’s all fuzzy,” smith said. “I’ve reached out to Chris and the message that came back is he’s not ready to talk, and when he is, he will reach out.”

Smith also addressed Rock directly. “Chris, I apologize to you. My behavior was unacceptable and I’m here whenever you’re ready to talk.”

Additionally, he apologized to Chris’ family including his mother and his brother, Tony Rock. “I didn’t realize how many people got hurt,” he said. “Tony Rock was my man and this is probably irreparable.”

smith said he’s been doing a lot of reflecting over the past few months and acknowledges that there is no part of him that thinks that was the right way to behave in that moment.

Pinkett was seen on camera rolling her eyes after Rock made his joke comparing her hair to Demi Moore’s character from G.I. Jane. But smith says his wife did nothing to provoke the attack.

He also apologized to his fellow Oscar nominees including Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson, who won the award for Best Documentary just moments after the slap.

Smith admitted that he was disappointed in himself for letting others down. He ended the video by promising to learn from his mistakes.

In the wake of the controversy, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences banned smith from returning to the Oscars or attending any other Academy events for the next 10 years. Some of his film projects have also been put on hold, including Bad Boys 4.
