Will Smith has been making headlines for the past few weeks since the Oscars. It was the 94th ceremony and it was held in Hollywood on March 28.

While he made a joke about the shaved head of Jada Pinkett, the wife of Will Smith, the actor got up to join him on stage. The public then expected some tense exchanges. But certainly not to a display of physical violence. However, it is a slap that received Chris Rock for having dared to make fun of the wife of Will Smith. Once returned to sit down, the actor yelled at the comedian to leave his wife out of his jokes, to stop saying his name.

I was out of place and I was wrong. »he wrote to begin with.
“I am embarrassed 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. I would also like to apologize to the Academy, the producers of the show, all of the contestants, and everyone watching around the world. I would like to apologize to the Williams family and my King Richard family. I deeply regret that my behavior tainted what has been an otherwise magnificent journey for all of us.
