Will Smith’s family respond to a video with Chris Rock’s apology, Oscar Slap

All love. Will Smith’s family is proud of him after he has publicly apologized to Chris Rock. Sources reveal that they love him nonetheless and are enthusiastic that he has taken a step in the right direction.

Sources close to the Smith family revealed to Hollywood Life on August 2, 2022 that they completely understood Will’s actions to apologize. “Jada is proud that Will has finally made a public apology decision,” the source said. “He believes that, in addition to a written apology, opening up to it through conversation was a better way to convey the truth in his heart. Will would like to undo it all, but he can’t, and all he can do is try to heal the wounds from here. As to what he thought about the apology, the source noted that Will wanted to wait it out. “It’s something he struggled with because he didn’t want the apology to appear inauthentic or insincere,” the source continued. He needed some time to search for a soul and wanted to respond appropriately. Despite Will’s apology, he understands that Chris is not ready to accept it at this point. He gets that the spanking has not only influenced Chris but has influenced his career, family and friends, it has influenced every aspect of his life. Will knows he can’t control it; all he can do is try to show how sorry he is and move on. “

His kids, Jaden and Willow, have been supporting him since Oscar’s slap incident. “Willow and her brother Jaden were in no way involved with what happened, but they received a lot of warmth for supporting their father after the incident, and because of that, they both experienced a lot of backlash – in their careers and with their friends,” the source continued. “They’re both really proud of their father, and they really hope it can start healing so that everyone can move from there and come to a place of love.” In a recent interview with Billboard, Willow shared how she really felt about the incident. “[It] it didn’t rock me as much as my own inner demons, “she said,” I can see that my whole family is human and I love and accept them for all their humanity, “she added. “Because of our position, our humanity is sometimes not accepted and we are expected to act in a way that is not conducive to healthy human life and is not conducive to integrity.”

Will released the video on July 29, 2022, as another public apology to Chris. “I contacted Chris and the message that came back is that he is not ready to talk, and when he does, he will contact him,” he said in the video. “So let me tell you, Chris, I’m sorry. My behavior was unacceptable. “I want to apologize to Chris’s mother,” he continued. “I saw an interview that Chris’s mother did. And that was one of the things at this point that I just didn’t realize. I did not think, but how many people were injured at that point. So I want to apologize to Chris’s mother. I want to apologize to Chris’s family. Tony Rock in particular. We had a great relationship. Tony Rock was my man. And that’s probably beyond repair. He continued: “I have spent the last three months recreating and understanding the complexities and nuances of what happened. I’m not going to unpack it all right now, but I can tell you that no part of me thought it was the right way to behave at this point.

According CNN, Chris subtly overshadowed Will’s apology in his comedy set. “Everyone’s trying to be the fucking victim. If they all say they are victims, no one is going to hear the real victims, “Chris said during his performance,” Not even me, who got from Suge Smith. I went to work the next day, I have kids. Anyone who says hurt words has never been slapped in the face. “

The Oscar ceremony took place four months ago at the Oscars on March 27, 2022, after Chris joked about Will’s wife, Jada Pinkett-Smith. The Academy of Motion Pictures and Sciences barred Smith from participating in future events for the next ten years. In an open letter, the Academy announced: “The Board of Directors decided that for a period of 10 years from April 8, 2022, Mr. Smith will not be allowed to participate in any of the Academy’s events or programs, in person or virtually, including but not limited to the Oscars.” The Academy apologized to Rock, the rest of the Academy, and the audience briefly: “We want to express our deep gratitude to Mr. Rock for maintaining his composure in extraordinary circumstances. We also want to thank our hosts, nominees, presenters and winners for their composure and grace during our TV show. ” Smith accepted the ban because he had previously resigned from the Academy on April 1, 2022.

To learn more about Will Smith, read his diary, Will be. The book, which was number one on The New York Times bestseller list, guides readers through Smith’s life, from his childhood in West Philadelphia and his early rap career to his rise to one of Hollywood’s greatest movie stars. The Autobiography – which Oprah Winfrey described as “the best diary I have ever read” – also explores a side of Smith’s life that he has never told before. “Will be is a story about how one person has mastered their own emotions, written in a way that can help everyone else ”- we read in the publisher’s description of the book. “Few of us know the pressure of top stakes on the world’s biggest stages, but we can all understand that a fuel that runs at one stage of our journey may need to change if we want to make it all the way home.”
