Will Smith posted a video on YouTube as well as Instagram on Friday, July 29 apologizing to Chris Rock for the slap. As we all know that Smith slapped comedian, Chris Rock on national television for making a joke about his wife’s hair.

Will Smith is regretting the thing he did with Chris Rock. The reason for slapping Chris Rock is he made fun of Smith’s wife Jada Pinkett Smith’s hair. Jada was suffering from alopecia and Rock during the Oscars made little fun about her bald hair. Though this made Will angry and he went on the stage and slapped Rock in front of the audience and cameras.

Later on the same day, Smith won the award for the best actor but the next day he got expelled from the industry for 10 years. However, on Friday he posted an emotional video of him apologizing to Chris Rock and his well-wishers and family. In the video, he answered the questions asked by people frequently. The first question that Will Smith said is,

“Why didn’t you apologize to Chris in your acceptance speech?”

In this, he replied, he was confused and angry and out of his mind. Likewise, he also stated,

“I was fogged out by that point. It’s all fuzzy. I’ve reached out to Chris and the message that came back is that he’s not ready to talk. And when he is, he will reach out. So I will say to you, Chris, I apologize to you. My behavior was unacceptable, and I’m here whenever you’re ready to talk.”
