You’d imagine that slapping Chris Rock on the Oscars stage in front of millions of viewers would be quite high on the list of embarrassing things your parents could do to you.
But Willow Smith, who broke her silence in her first public remarks since the awards ceremony earlier this year, seemed to be mostly at peace with her father Will Smith’s infamous outburst.
In an interview with Billboard that was released on Friday, Smith discussed the response from the general public, saying that it “didn’t rock me as much as my own internal demons.”
She told the magazine, “I regard my entire family as being human, and I love and embrace them for all their humanness. Because of the position we have, “our humanity isn’t always respected, and we’re expected to behave in a way that doesn’t promote a healthy human life or promote being honest.”

With the exception of two cryptic tweets, Smith has not spoken out about Will’s conduct since the ceremony. Smith attended the Vanity Fair Oscars 2022 afterparty by her father’s side.
Days after the concert, she tweeted that challenges are where life’s purpose may be found. In yet another letter, she stated, “Life is a sequence of reactions.”
Will Smith finally addressed the issue late last month after keeping quiet for several months. In the video statement, he once more apologized for punching Rock over a joke he made about Jada Pinkett Smith’s thinning hair.
In the roughly six-minute video, Smith added, “There is no part of me that thinks it was the best way to handle sentiments of disrespect or insults. “I’m going to apologize to you, Chris. I’m available to speak with you anytime you’re ready, and my behavior was inappropriate.
The actor continued by expressing his regret to his family for “the heat that I brought on all of us” and making it clear that Pinkett Smith had “nothing to do” with his choices.
Smith claimed, “I made a decision on my own, based on my own experiences and my history with Chris.
Following the reprimand, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences forbade the “King Richard” actor from going to any of its official events for the following ten years, including the award show.
During a segment of her “Red Table Talk” show, Pinkett Smith also discussed the slap in public and asked Rock to make amends with her husband.
She expressed her sincere want for the two wise, capable men to have a chance at healing, dialogue, and reconciliation. “How is the world right now? In fact, we all truly need one another more than ever since we need them both.
Rock, on the other hand, is said to have “gone on” from the incident and “doesn’t need to discuss,” according to a source who declined to be named.
Will is clearly more bothered by this than Chris is. Will must address his problems, the person stated. Chris is good.
