Will Smith Responds to His 10-Year Oscar Suspension After Chris Rock Slap

Bestinau got that-

When Smith won the Best Actor in a Leading Role award less than an hour later, he apologized to the Academy and his fellow nominees for his past actions. “Art imitates life, I look like the crazy father,” he said, referring to his role as the father of… Venus and Serena Williams in King Richard† “Love will make you do crazy things.”

A day later, Smith released a written statement on social media apologizing specifically to Rock.

“Violence in all its forms is toxic and destructive,” he wrote. “Jokes at my expense are part of the job, but a joke about Jada’s medical condition was too much for me and I reacted emotionally.”

The actor added: “I want to apologize publicly, Chris. I was out of line and I was wrong. I am ashamed and my actions were not indicative of the man I want to be. There is no place for violence in a world of love and kindness.”
