One of the most shocking moments this year happened at the Oscars in March, when actor, Will Smith, slapped Chris Rock. Since then, there have been multiple statements made about the situation. Recently, Will Smith’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, said she hopes for a reconciliation between Rock and her husband.
While speaking about the incident on her talk show, The Red Table Talk, Jada said, “Now, about Oscar night, my deepest hope is that these two intelligent, capable men have an opportunity to heal, talk this out and reconcile.” While Rock hasn’t directly responded to Jada’s comments, a source informed Entertainment Tonight, “He’s not concerned with the Smiths at the moment. He’s touring and he’s preparing for a comedy special.”
Jada said that her family is healing after the Oscars incident. Will Smith was seen visiting India after the Oscars. Chris Rock continued his tour but didn’t mention the Oscars incident in his shows. Recently, Rock joked about the Oscars incident while attending Dave Chappelle’s show.
After Chappelle was attacked during his standup show, Chris later went on to the stage and joked, “Was that Will Smith?” After the incident, Will publicly apologized to Chris. He did this on Instagram with a long note. The Academy also said that Will could not attend the Oscars for 10 years.
