We were all waiting for Will Smith to speak out after slapping Chris Rock at the Oscars 2022. Well, that moment has arrived through an Instagram post. We tell you all the details.
The actor has apologised to the Hollywood Academy and Chris Rock for the assault at the Oscars: “I deeply regret my behaviour,” the actor said in a post on his Instagram profile.
“Violence in all its forms is poisonous and destructive,” Will Smith said in his post. “My behaviour last night at the Academy Awards was unacceptable and inexcusable,” he adds.
Jada’s husband goes on to say that “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”.

“I would like to publicly apologise to you, Chris. I was out of line and I was wrong. I am ashamed and my actions were not a reflection of the man I want to be. There is no place for violence in a world of love and kindness.”
Smith’s words came after an outpouring of comments on social media, some in favour and some against, and also after the Hollywood Academy opened an investigation against the actor.
