Chris Rock Replies Will Smith’s Apology Indirectly
Several individuals, including the victim, have reacted to the uncivilized altercation between Chris Rock and Will Smith. Yesterday, Will Smith apologized to Chris Rock in a video. I will apologize to everyone impacted by the incident, including the comedian’s mother and other family members, in the nearly six-minute video. Onstage in Atlanta, Chris Rock responds to Will Smith’s apology in a humorous and indirect manner.
Will apologized and admitted that he had made some attempts to contact Chris. Will Smith was informed, however, that the actor and stand-up comedian was not yet prepared to speak. When the comedian made comments about his wife’s beauty and hairstyle during the Oscars, Will became upset. Will Pinkett’s wife Jada Pinkett apparently has alopecia, which explains the haircut. Will, 53, who is currently facing a 10-year Oscars ban, has acknowledged that his conduct was improper. Will apologized, saying:
“I’ve reached out to Chris and the message that came back is that he’s not ready to talk and when he is, he will reach out so I will say to you Chris, I apologize to you. My behavior was unacceptable and I’m here whenever you’re ready to talk.”
Will acknowledged that he was “fogged out” and couldn’t apologize to Chris at the 2022 Oscars. Will took some time away from the media to work on himself, which may have contributed to the “delayed” apology.
Chris Rock indirectly responds to Will Smith’s apology
A few hours after Will Smith’s apology went viral, the 1965-born comedian obliquely responded. Onstage in Atlanta on Friday, the comedian cracked jokes about his and Will’s unforgettable 2022 Oscars Award moment. He laughed:
“If everybody claims to be a victim, then nobody will hear the real victims,” Rock said. “Even me getting smacked by Suge Smith … I went to work the next day, I got kids.”
Chris Rock implied in response to Will Smith’s apologies that anyone who claims that words hurt has never received a punch to the face. Rock hasn’t specifically addressed the event or Will’s apologies. Will’s apology revealed that he was very sorry for his actions. But it takes a lot of bravery to forgive, and Chris is expected to do that by his admirers. Hopefully, Chris Rock will address the issue in the open to reassure the audience and any worried parties.
