Will Smith’s Oscars drama
Emancipation is Smith’s first big release after he won the Best Actor Academy Award this year. It turned out to be a strange night for the actor considering he not only won the biggest honour of the night but also courted controversy after he slapped comedian Chris Rock on stage for cracking a joke about his wife Jada Pinkett Smith.
Recently, Will Smith also opened up about the “horrific” Oscars night as he spoke about the same on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah. The actor stated that his reaction was a result of “bottled rage.” Smith explained, “It’s like — there’s all these things, and they’re strangers, and you just don’t know what is going on with people. And I was going through something that night. Not that that justifies my behaviour at all.”
Will previously also apologized to the comedian releasing a video on social media and calling his behavior “unacceptable.” He expressed his deep remorse and said, “I can say to all of you there is no part of me that thinks that was the right way to behave in that moment.”
