It’s like people are like ‘oh I wish I was in such and such shoes and oh those are my goals and everything,’ but you really don’t know what it takes to get there. I’ve had conversations with him, and it like really kind of broke my heart listening to the things he’s said he had to go through to get to where he is.”

When the incident happened, celebrities were shocked to see this incident. The live streaming of Disney+ Hotstar stopped for a while. Fans are wondering if this incident was scripted or real.
During a commercial break, Denzel Washington and Tyler Perry rushed to comfort the couple.
Will Smith also apologized to Crish Rock through his Instagram post.
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. 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.
I am a work in progress.
