Will Smith Addresses Oscars Slap In New Video

On Friday, Smith uploaded a video to both his verified Instagram and YouTube accounts that started with the words “It’s been a minute.” The statement adds, “Over the past few months, I’ve been doing a lot of thinking and personal work… I wanted to take some time to respond to all the legitimate questions you raised.
Following a sigh, Smith enters the scene and addresses the camera, explaining why he didn’t apologise to Rock at his Oscars acceptance speech for his performance in King Richard. Smith admits, “I was fogged out at that time.”

“Everything is hazy. Chris has said that he isn’t ready to discuss right now but will get in touch with me when he is. I shall thus apologise to you, Chris. I apologise for my behaviour, and I’m available whenever you want to talk.” Rock’s representatives have been contacted by CNN for comment. Additionally, Smith offers his regrets to Rock’s mother, family, and brother, Tony Rock, who starred in the 2007.

Smith also states in his video that his wife did not ask him to do anything after rolling her eyes at Rock’s joke in response to the question of whether or not she had. In the post, he also expresses his regret to her, their kids, and the other Academy Award nominees. The last three months, according to Smith, have been spent “replaying and understanding the subtlety and complexities of what happened in that moment.” There is no part of me that believes that was the appropriate course of action to take at that particular time, he tells the audience.

“I’m not going to try to unravel all of that right now,” he continues. “There is no part of me that believes that is the best response to being treated disrespectfully or insulted.” Smith continues by saying it kills him to realise he fell short of people’s expectations of him. He says, “Disappointing people is my fundamental trauma.” “I hate disappointing people, so it stings,” Smith addresses his fans directly and pledges to “bring light, love, and joy into the globe.” He adds, “If you hold on, I swear we’ll be able to be friends again.
