He also apologized to the Academy, producers, and a lot more. Here is his whole statement:
"Violence in all of its forms is poisonous and destructive. 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.
"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.
"I would also like to apologize to the Academy, the producers of the show, all the attendees and everyone watching around the world. I would like to apologize to the Williams Family and my King Richard Family. I deeply regret that my behavior has stained what has been an otherwise gorgeous journey for all of us.
"I am a work in progress."
Will Smith is a Hollywood actor. He is known for “Men in Black”, “Independence Day”, and “Bad Boys.” He won the Best Actor award at the 2022 Oscars.
Will Smith slapped Chris Rock at the 2022 Academy Awards. This came after Chris joked about the medical condition of his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith. Clearly, he did not want the host to make a joke about it.
Karen Davila took to Twitter and expressed what her personal thoughts were on the recent viral act of Will Smith on live TV. The actor went onstage and right then and there gave Chris Rock a hard slap on the face. It came after the comedian took a jab at the wife of Will, actress Jada Pinkett Smith, regarding her bald hair, which is actually a result of her having alopecia. The journalist then said that what happened onstage was terrible and that there was allegedly a disconnect between the act of Will and his speech thereafter about being a vessel of love.
