Will Smith has apologized for slapping the sh*t out of Comedian Chris Rock live on stage at the Oscars award ceremony.
At a certain moment, comedian Chris Rock hit the stage to tell a few jokes. He decided to talk about couples such as Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz and then he turned to Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith. He mocked the actress and her bald head by asking when the G.I. Jane sequel was coming out.
Briefly after the joke was made, Will Smith walked to the stage and smacked the comedian across the face. He then returned to his seat and shouted, “Keep my wife’s name out of your fucking mouth.”
In his acceptance speech, he said ;
“I want to apologize to the academy, I want to apologize to all my fellow nominees and everybody.
Love will make you do crazy things.”
He later took to Twitter to share;
I’m sorry if you’re offended.
