According to Page Six source, Smith who is currently in India to heal himself, is yet to apologise to Chris. Talking about it, the unnamed source called Smith’s trip to India ‘cynical’ and ‘ridiculous’.
Only a few days ago, Chris Rock’s mother and author Rose Rock opened up about the incident at the Academy and said, “I told someone when Will slapped Chris, he slapped all of us, but he really slapped me. When you hurt my child, you hurt me.”
Rose added that she has no idea what she would say to Smith whenever they will cross paths. “I have no idea what I would say other than, ‘What in the world were you thinking?’ Because you did a slap, but so many things could have happened. Chris could have stepped back and fallen. You really could have gotten taken out in handcuffs. You didn’t think. You reacted to your wife giving you the side-eye, and you went up, and you made her day because she was bowled over laughing when it happened,” Rose said.
It all began at the Oscars 2022 when Chris Rock made a joke about Smith’s wife Jada Pinkett Smith while presenting the best documentary feature award at the event.
For those who missed, Rock said he couldn’t wait to see Pinkett Smith, who has alopecia areata, star in ‘G.I. Jane 2’ which led Smith to go up on stage and slap Rock. Soon after this, Smith returned to his seat and shouted, “Keep my wife’s name out of your fu**ing mouth!”
Meanwhile, the Academy banned Will Smith from all of their future events for the next 10 years.
