At the award show, Will Smith ended up winning in the Best Actor category, due to his role in “King Richard,” in which he played the father of Venus and Serena Williams. While up on the stage again, he said, “Art imitates life. I look like the crazy father … Love will make you do crazy things.”
Yesterday, Smith shared an Instagram post that expressed his apologies to Rock, the Academy, and audiences, writing, “Violence in all of its forms is poisonous and destructive. My behavior at last night’s Academy Awards was unacceptable and inexcusable.”
Then today, his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, shared her own post on Instagram — a quote that read, “This is a season for healing and I’m here for it.” One may think that “healing” would involve forgiveness, perhaps, or even talking out the issue, but as of last Monday, a source told TMZ that Smith and Rock haven’t talked since Sunday.
