Will Smith apologizes to Chris Rock for Oscar slap

29.07.2022 0 By admin

After the “fateful” slap to Chris Rock, troubles rained down on Will Smith as if from a cornucopia – “cancellation” in Hollywood, public censure, real bullying on the Web.

Recall that in March 2022, in front of millions of viewers of the live broadcast of the Oscars, the actor hit Chris Rock, the host of the ceremony, in the face – he allowed himself a taunt against Smith’s wife. Chris joked unsuccessfully about the hairstyle of Jada Pinkett Smith, who suffers from alopecia.

Will apologized for his behavior the next day, posting a short statement on social media.

“Violence in any form is poisonous and destructive. My behavior last night at the ceremony is unacceptable and inexcusable, ”the actor, who was suspended from the Oscars for 10 years, wrote at the time.

However, Smith felt that this was not enough. And a few months later he released on his official YouTube channel almost a six minute video.
