Check out the video here:
Will and Jada are seen all dressed up for the Academy Awards. They are also seen goofing around in the video. He captioned it, ‘Me ‘n @jadapinkettsmith got all dressed up to choose chaos.’
Chris Rocks made a joke about Jada’s alopecia and that apparently did not go down well with Smith. Will not only slapped him on stage but also hurled abuses at him.
Smith has now apologised to the organisers, his fellow nominees and others in his thank you speech. He even shared a post on Instagram apologising to Chris Rock and shared that violence is never the answer.
Check out the post here:
His post read, “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,” Smith concluded.
