Will Smith broke the silence and spoke for the first time on video, this Friday (29), about slap he gave
Chris Rock at the Oscars 2022, after a comment about his wife, actress and presenter Jada Pinkett.
Rock was presenting the award for best documentary when he made a joke about Jada's shaved head, who has alopecia, a disease that causes hair loss.
Four months after the episode, the actor posted an almost six-minute video on his YouTube channel in which
he comments on the case. Smith answers three questions that have been asked on the Internet. The first one
asks why the actor did not apologize to Chris when he received the Academy
Award for Best Actor for his performance in "King Richard: Raising Champions.
"Everything was confusing at that moment. I contacted Chris and the message that came back is that he is not ready to talk."
"I want to speak to you, Chris, I apologize to you. My behavior was unacceptable and I am here to talk when you are ready," the actor says.
Smith also apologizes to Chris' mother and family. "I didn't think about how hurt people were at that moment."
