Will Smith issued another apology for slapping Chris Rock at the 2022 Academy Awards.


The movie star addressed Chris Rock directly in a statement released on Monday (March 28). Will Smith apologized to the comedian and expressed regret for his actions at the Oscars.

“Violence in all of its forms is poisonous and destructive,” Will Smith wrote. “My behavior at last night’s Academy Awards was unacceptable and inexcusable. 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.”

He continued, “I would like to publicly apologize to you, Chris. I was out of line and I was wrong. 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.”
