Jada Pinkett Smith made her first post after Will Smith’s episodic reaction to Oscar night
Will Smith, who later apologized, describing the violence as “poisonous and destructive in all its forms”, managed to irreparably destroy the atmosphere at Sunday’s Academy Awards ceremony after punching Chris Rock. And not just the atmosphere.
His wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, broke her silence a few hours ago, commenting on what happened through her Instagram account: “This is a period of healing. “And I’m here for that,” he wrote.
Its comprehensive message is not accompanied by a caption, leaving everyone to draw their own conclusions. Will Smith’s public apology, however, contained the following:
“Violence is poisonous and destructive in all its forms,” he said. “My behavior at last night’s awards was unacceptable and unjustified. Jokes against me are part of the job, but jokes about Jada’s condition were too much for me and I reacted emotionally. “I would like to apologize publicly to you, Chris. I exceeded the limits and I was wrong. I feel ashamed and my actions do not represent who I want to be. There is no room for violence in a world of love and kindness. “
He continued: “I would also like to apologize to the Academy, the producers, the attendees and the spectators around the world. I would also like to apologize to the Williams family and the King Richard family. I deeply regret my behavior, which marked this trip that was beautiful for all of us. I’m trying to evolve. “
It all started when Chris Rock had just taken the stage and started making the usual jokes of the presenters. One of them was the hair of Jada Pinkett Smith, whom she compared to GI Jane (the character of Demi Moore in the movie of the same name, who shaves her head to go to the army).
Seconds later, Will Smith takes the stage, approaches Rock and punches him or something that looks like a punch. Then Smith turns around and starts yelling at Rock “keep my wife’s name out of your f *** ing mouth”.
You know very well what followed.
