Actor Will Smith apologizes for hitting show host at Oscar

Written by admin

Hollywood actor Will Smith on his page Instagram apologized for his behavior at the Oscars, during which he punched host Chris Rock in the face.

As previously reported, during the 94th Academy Awards, held at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood (Los Angeles), a scandal broke out: live Hollywood actor Will Smith hit the host of the show Chris Rock (video).

Rock joked “about the amazing, very short haircut” of actress Jada Pinkett-Smith, the wife of Will Smith, who now suffers from alopecia, an autoimmune disease that leads to hair loss. Jada was indignant. Will laughed at first with everyone, perhaps not hearing Chris’s words. But then he came on stage, hit Rock hard in the face and returned to his seat. Then Will, already in place, said what he thought of Rock.

After reassuring himself and possibly consulting with lawyers, Will Smith called his behavior at the Oscars “unacceptable and unforgivable.” “Jokes about me are part of the job, but the joke about Jada’s health was unbearable for me, and I reacted emotionally. I would like to publicly apologize to you, Chris. I broke down and I was wrong … In a world of love and kindness “There is no place for violence. I would also like to apologize to the Academy, the show’s producers, all the visitors and all the spectators in the world,” Smith wrote.

Will Smith won an Oscar this year for Best Actor for his role as Richard Williams in King Richard. He also apologized to his colleagues for this film work.
