Hollywood star Will Smith has again publicly apologized to comedian Chris Rock for slapping him onstage at the 2022 Oscars after the latter made fun of Smith’s wife Jada Pinkett Smith’s bald head. In a new video, the King Richard actor said he felt deep remorse for his actions and his behavior was unacceptable, adding that “I made a mistake”.
Responding to why he didn’t apologize to Chris in his acceptance speech, Will said: “I was steamed up at the time. Everything is blurry. I reached out to Chris and the message that came back is that he’s not ready to talk, and when he is, he’ll reach out to you. So I’ll tell you, Chris, I apologize. My behavior was unacceptable. And I’m here whenever you’re ready to talk.
Will reiterated that he responded violently because Chris’ joke referred to his wife’s hair loss due to her medical condition known as alopecia. “I made a choice on my own, based on my own experiences of my history with Chris. Jada had nothing to do with it, sorry baby. I want to say sorry to my children and my family. For the warmth I brought on all of us,” Will said when answering a question about whether Jada, who was seen on camera rolling her eyes at Chris’s joke, had urged him to get on. stage.
The Hollywood reporter also apologized to Chris’ mother, family and brother Tony Rock. “It hurts me psychologically and emotionally to know that I haven’t lived up to the image and impression that people have of me. Disappointing people is my main trauma. I hate it when I let people down,” he added.
“And the job that I’m trying to do is that I’m deeply remorseful and I’m trying to be remorseful without being ashamed of myself. … So I would say to these people, I know it was confusing. I know it was shocking. But I promise you that I am deeply dedicated and committed to bringing light, love and joy into the world,” Will concluded.
After the slapping incident, Will also took to Instagram to apologize to Chris in March. Post that Will was banned from attending any Academy events for the next 10 years, including the Oscars. He had won the best actor award for King Richard.
