Will Smith is seeking to reconcile with Chris Rock following a well-publicized incident at last year’s 94th Academy Awards where Smith slapped Rock on stage. The King Richard star, who won an Oscar for his role in the film, has been feeling remorseful about his actions and has attempted to apologize to Rock but has been unsuccessful in his attempts.
However, family is important to Smith and he has found support and comfort from his wife Jada Pinkett Smith and their children Trey, Jaden, and Willow during this difficult time. Smith’s experience has helped him reflect on his actions and mature, but he still feels regretful about what happened.
Rock did not make any public statements after the incident for a considerable period of time, but he has now spoken out in his latest comedy special, Selective Outrage, which was broadcast live on Netflix. “Will Smith has selective outrage,” Rock said. “Everybody that really knows knows I had nothing to do with him. I didn’t have any ‘entanglements.’
