Will Smith has actually resolved his notorious Oscars 2022 run-in after he slapped Chris Rock onstage for making a dig at his better half, Jada Pinkett Smith
In an Instagram post on March 28, Will shared that while he does not excuse his own habits, the nature of Chris’ joke is what pressed him over.
“Violence in all of its forms is poisonous and destructive,” Will composed. “My behavior at last night’s Academy Awards was unacceptable and inexcusable. Jokes at my expense are a part of the job, but a joke about Jada’s medical condition was too much for me to bear and I reacted emotionally.”
Will continued by releasing a public apology to Chris, writing, “I would like to publicly apologize to you, Chris. I was out of line and I was wrong. I am embarrassed and my actions were not indicative of the man I want to be. There is no place for violence in a world of love and kindness.”
While providing an award on Sunday, Chris made a joke about Jada’s shaved head. Will then strolled onstage, slapped the comic and yelled, “Keep my wife’s name out of your f–king mouth!” It ends up Will and Jada have some history with Chris and his jabs at the Oscars.
