Jada Pinkett Smith Breaks Silence After Will Smith Hit Chris Rock at Oscars
Will Smith apologized to Chris Rock on Monday saying he “reacted emotionally” to a “joke about Jada’s medical condition”
Jada Pinkett Smith is speaking out two days after husband Will Smith struck Chris Rock onstage at the 94th annual Academy Awards on Sunday.
The actress posted a message on her Instagram that read, “This is a season for healing and I’m here for it.”
Jada’s statement comes after Will, 53, issued an apology of his own on Monday, writing, “Violence in all of its forms is poisonous and destructive. My behavior at last night’s Academy Awards was unacceptable and inexcusable. Jokes at my expense are a part of the job, but a joke about Jada’s medical condition was too much for me to bear and I reacted emotionally.”
“I would like to publicly apologize to you, Chris,” the King Richard actor continued. “I was out of line and I was wrong. I am embarrassed and my actions were not indicative of the man I want to be. There is no place for violence in a world of love and kindness.”
“I would also like to apologize to the Academy, the producers of the show, all the attendees and everyone watching around the world. I would like to apologize to the Williams Family and my King Richard Family. I deeply regret that my behavior has stained what has been an otherwise gorgeous journey for all of us,” Smith concluded.
The incident occurred Sunday night after the comedian, 57, made a joke about Jada’s hair, saying in part, “Jada, I love ya. G.I. Jane 2, can’t wait to see ya.”
The remark references Demi Moore’s shaved head in the movie G.I. Jane. Jada recently opened up about her bald head, revealing it was a result of living with alopecia for years. The Girls Trip actress was visibly unamused by the joke, rolling her eyes from her seat.
