Willow Smith defended the now infamous moment when her father, Will Smith, slapped 

Chris Rock at the 2022 Academy Awards, saying that it is human nature to make mistakes.

"I see my whole family as being human, and I love them and accept 

them for all their humanity," the "Maybe It's My Fault" singer, 21, told Billboard in an interview published Friday.

"Because of the position we're in, our humanity is sometimes

not accepted, and we're expected to act in a way that doesn't lead to a healthy human life and doesn't lead to honesty."

Will, 53, shocked the world in March when he slapped Rock, 57, on stage at the Academy

Awards after the comedian made a joke about the bald head of the "King Richard" star's wife, Jada 

Pinkett Smith. (The actress, 50, suffers from alopecia, an autoimmune disease that causes hair loss.)

After the incident, the famous family faced an onslaught of 

scrutiny, which Willow said didn't affect her as much as her "own inner demons."

Willow's comments come a week after her father took to social media to issue yet another apology for his "unacceptable" behavior.
