Will Smith Apologizes for his Actions

Will Smith apologizes to Chris Rock after smacking him after a Joke about his wife.


On March 27, 2022 the Academy Awards were held in Los Angeles, California. Chris Rock was making a speech at the awards and threw in a joke about Jada Smith. Will smith thought it was very offensive and got up and slapped Chris in the face.


“I think this was so strange. I honestly think it looks staged,” says Maia.


Yesterday Will Smith made a public apology to Chris Rock about his actions from the night before.


 “My behavior at last night’s Academy Awards was unacceptable and inexcusable,” Said Will. Wil also added, “ “Jokes at my expense are a part of the job, but a joke about Jada’s medical condition was too much for me to bear and I reacted emotionally.”


The joke made about Will’s wife was to mention her alopecia and referred to her as “G.I. Jane 2.” Jada did not find the joke funny although Will did until he realized his wife was upset.


“I think that the joke was very offensive considering he mentioned a condition she can’t control,” says Maia.
