Will Smith recently spoke about her reaction to watching her father Will Smith slap comedian Chris Rock in the face at the 94th Academy Awards.
While the incident left the audience and viewers at home dumbfounded, the 21-year-old singer did not allow her view of her father, 53, to change in any way.
“I see my entire family as human beings, and I love and accept them for all their humanity,” the game creator Meet Me At Our Spot explained to the outlet.
Breaking Her Silence: Willow Smith finally spoke about her reaction to watching her father Will Smith slap Chris Rock in the face at the 94th Academy Awards; seen in March
She continued: “Because of the situation we are in, our humanity is sometimes unacceptable, and we are expected to act in a way that is neither conducive to a healthy human life nor conducive to honesty. “.
While speaking about the assault, she said it “shakes” her no more than her “inner demons.”
Her comments come after Will publicly apologized to Rock last month, via his social media channels, revealing that his ex-boyfriend had yet to forgive him.
While the incident left audiences and viewers at home dumbfounded, the 21-year-old singer wouldn’t allow her to change the way she portrays her father, 53 (Smith was photographed hitting a rock band earlier this year)
Smith said he’s spent the past three months “working” on himself and now realizes how many people were hurt when Rock hit the stage at the awards show.
I’ve reached out to Chris and the message that comes back is that he’s not ready to talk when he is, and he’ll reach out to him. So I’m going to tell you, Chris, I apologize to you. My behavior was unacceptable and I am here whenever I am ready to speak.
He also apologized to Rock’s mother and his entire family, specifically Rock’s mother and younger brother Tony.
I didn’t realize how many people were injured at that moment, so I want to apologize to Chris’ mother. I want to apologize.
The Meet Me At Our Spot hit maker explained: “I see my entire family as human beings, and I love and accept them with all their humanity.
He said, “I want to apologize to Tony Rock… Tony Rock was my man and this probably can’t be fixed.”
He also apologized to his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, who he claimed defended her honor out of anger, and said it had “nothing to do with it”.
I’ve spent the past three months replaying and understanding the nuances and intricacies of what happened in that moment.
Smith’s wife Jada Pinkett Smith recently revealed that she suffers from hair loss and that she has shaved her head. Rock joked during his hosting party that she looks like J.I. Jin.
I won’t try to unpack all of that now but I can tell you all, there’s no part of me that thinks that’s the right way to act in that moment.
“No part of me thinks this is the best way to deal with feeling disrespected or insulted.”
Rock, who was the host of the show, joked that Smith’s wife Jada looks like “GI I Jane” because of her bald head.
She had recently revealed that she suffers from hair loss.
Smith stormed the stage and slapped Rock after his anger: “Keep my wife’s name out of your mouth.”
He went on to win Best Actor for his role in King Richard that night, but he didn’t specifically apologize to The Rock.
Insisting that his wife had nothing to do with the slap, he continued, “I personally chose from my own experience of my history with Chris.
Jada had nothing to do with it. I’m sorry babe.
I want to say sorry to my children and family for the heat it brought us all.
Supportive: She continued: “Because of the situation we are in, our humanity is sometimes not accepted and we are expected to act in a way that is neither conducive to a healthy human life nor conducive to being honest’ (Smith family seen in 2016)
To all my fellow candidates, this is a community.
“It’s like, ‘You won because you voted for me, and it’s broken that I stole and defaced your moment.'”
Smith went on to claim that “people’s disappointment” was his “central trauma”.
I can still see Questlove’s eyes. You know it happened on the Questlove Award. You know, it’s like.
I’m really sorry it’s not enough.
Smith said he’s spent the past three months “thinking about” his behavior and realizing how many people have been hurt
“Disappointing people is my central trauma. I hate when I let people down so it hurts.
“It hurts me psychologically and emotionally when I know that I have not lived up to people’s image and impressions of me, and the work I am trying to do is that I deeply regret it.
‘And I try to be remorseful without being ashamed of myself. I’m human and I’ve made a mistake trying not to think of myself as a piece of a**t.
“I would like to tell those people I know that it was baffling, I know it was shocking, but I promise you that I am very loyal and committed to shedding light, love and joy on the world.
“You know, if you stick around, I promise we’ll be able to be friends again,” he told the fans he let down.
Rock didn’t get into the controversy until recently at the Madison Square Garden Show, where he mocked him.
“Anyone who says painful words has not been punched in the face,” he told the crowd.
Smith issued his first apology to The Rock back in March. He posted a lengthy statement on Instagram saying that “violence in all its forms” is wrong.
