Will Smith “devastated” by his slap at the Oscars: a witness breaks the silence

Three months ago, big movie fans attended, from their sofa or live from the room, the 94th Academy Awards. An awards ceremony that saw big names in cinema rewarded, including Will Smith in the Best Actor category for the film The Williams Method. If such a statue is a consecration for each laureate, Will Smith saw his moment spoiled by the action he had performed some time before during the ceremony: the slap, which has become legendary, which he struck at Chris Rock , host of the prestigious evening.

Annoyed after a joke from Chris Rock on the physique of his wife, a consequence of the alopecia from which she suffers, Will Smith could not control his nerves. He therefore got up from his chair, walked towards the master of ceremonies and gave him a huge slap in the face, causing stupor throughout the room.

Tyler Perry, actor present in the room, was in the front row. He even went directly to see Will Smith after his skid to explain himself to him. He also informed Gayle King, presenter of CBS Morningswhat they had said to each other, words that Deadline reported: “I was there, closer. I left early to see how Chris was doing because what had happened was definitely wrong, and I wanted to tell Will.

Far from him the idea of ​​brushing Will Smith in the direction of the hair at the time. On the contrary, Tyler Perry wanted to tell him the bottom of his mind: “Looking that man in the eye, I said, ‘What are you doing? It’s your big night… You’ve come all this way to winning an Oscar!’. It was one of the highlights he desperately wanted to see happen in his career.“That moment, Will Smith ruined it by acting like this and he apparently realized it right away:”He was devastated. He couldn’t believe what had happened. He couldn’t believe what he had done.”

After careful consideration, the Academy of Oscars has decided to ban the actor from any ceremony for ten years, despite his resignation and the public apologies written by Will Smith on his Instagram account: “My behavior last night at the Oscars was unacceptable and inexcusable. Jokes at my expense are part of the job, but one joke about Jada’s health issue was too much for me and I reacted emotionally.“Will Smith has indeed become a legend, unfortunately not for the right reasons.
