Will Smith apologized to Chris and his family, including his mother, Rose Rock. The video begins with text that reads, “It’s been a minute… Over the past few months, I’ve been doing a lot of thoughtful and personal work. You asked a lot of unbiased questions and I’m ready to answer.” Wanted to take some time.”

In the video, Will said, “Why didn’t you apologize to Chris in your acceptance speech?” “I was out by that point. It was all vague. I’ve reached out to Chris and the message that comes back is that he’s not ready to talk. When he is, he’ll arrive. So I Will tell you, Chris. I apologize to you. My behavior was unacceptable and I’m here whenever you’re ready to talk,” the actor replied.

Will said he didn’t realize how many people he hurt by the incident and apologized to Chris Rock’s mother. After the controversy surrounding Will Smith’s slap, the actor traveled to India for a spiritual journey. Talking about his last three months, he further added, “It is probably irreplaceable. I spent the last 3 months playing again and understanding the nuances and complexities of what happened in that moment and I just won’t unravel all that. I can say that there is no part of me that thinks this was the right way to behave at the time. There is no part of me that thinks this is the best way to handle feelings of disrespect or humiliation.”

It all started in March of this year when Will hit Chris after joking about his wife Jada Pinkett Smith’s shaved head. Jada has shaved her head since suffering from alopecia areata. Addressing the same, Will clarified that it was not his wife who asked him to do the poll during Oscar night.

“It’s like, I made the choice on my own, from my experience, from my history with Chris. Jada had nothing to do with it, sorry babe, sorry to your kids and family for the summer I’m all of us.” But I had brought it on,” he said. I will also apologize to fellow nominees at Oscars 2022.

“I’m human and I’ve made a mistake and I’m trying not to think of myself as a piece of s***,” Will said and apologized to everyone for his behavior. Meanwhile, the Academy has banned Will Smith for the next 10 years following the incident. The decision was taken after the actor resigned from the academy.

Earlier Will Smith shared a note on the matter. “Violence in all its forms is poisonous and destructive. My behavior at last night’s Academy Awards was unacceptable and unforgivable. Jokes are part of my job at my expense, but a joke about Jada’s medical condition was too much for me to bear and I reacted emotionally,” read an excerpt from her apology.
