More information is coming out surrounding Oscar’s drama.
At the time, Will was seemingly upset over a joke Chris made, which prompted Will to walk on stage and smack Chris across the face. The assault came after Chris joked that he was looking forward to a sequel to “G.I. Jane,” which was ultimately a jab at Jada Pinkett-Smith’s shaved head. When Will sat back down, he shouted to Chris, “keep my wife’s name out of your f*** mouth.”
Will also won his first Oscar for Best Actor in ‘King Richard.’ When he accepted his speech, he delivered a tearful apology to the academy, and the following day, he wrote an apology to Chris via a social media post. Jada also seemingly spoke out, and Will plans on addressing the matter more on his wife’s show, Red Table Talk.
