Will Smith the great and successful American Actor has apologised to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, producers of OSCARS for slapping Chris Rock on stage during the award ceremony.
Smith had hit Rock, the host of the 2022 OSCARS, after the comic made a joke about his wife Jada Pinkett Smith. For his action, Smith later apologised on stage after picking up an award for his role in King Richard.
“I want to apologise to the Academy. I want to apologise to all my fellow nominees,” he said during a tearful acceptance speech for best actor. “I hope I get invited next time.”
This is Smith’s first Oscar of his career. In ‘King Richard,’ he played the father of tennis legends Venus and Serena Williams.
“Art imitates life. I look like the crazy father, just like they said about Richard Williams. But love will make you do crazy things,” he continued as Serena and Venus watched him in tears. But at the end Will Smith apologises after hitting Chris Rock on Stage.
