Nearly six months after Will Smith slapped Chris Rock at the Oscars in March, his 21-year-old
daughter, Willow Smith, is talking about why the incident didn't shake her up in the way you
might expect. In a recent interview with Publicity PanelWillow said that the Oscar moment didn't "shake me as much as my own inner demons."
For the "Psychofreak" singer, it was important to remember that her father is human and
made a mistake. However, she knows that it is more difficult for the public to view her famous
family through a similar lens. "I see my whole family as human, and I love and accept them for all their humanity," she said.
"Because of the position we are in, our humanity is sometimes not accepted, and we are expected to act in a way that is not conducive to a healthy human life and not conducive to honesty."
During the Oscar broadcast, Will slapped Rock after the comedian joked, "Jada, I love you.
'GI Jane 2,' I can't wait to see you." Will's wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, has alopecia and has been open about her journey with the disease.
After the slap, the "King Richard" actor resigned from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. He was also banned from attending the awards ceremony for 10 years.
Soon after the incident, Will issued a public apology. "I would like to publicly apologize to you, Chris," he said at the time.
"I was out of line and I was wrong. I am ashamed and my actions did not indicate the man I want to be. There is no place for violence in a world of love and kindness."
