On The Daily Show, Will Smith Explains The Oscar Slap Controversy

Earlier this month, the actor, who described the incident as "a horrific night," was interviewed for the first time after the incident. "I was going through some stuff that night," he said on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah. This does not justify my behavior in any way." Smith added that numerous nuances and complexity were involved, but he lost his cool. The hair loss condition alopecia caused Smith to storm the stage after Rock made a joke about Jada Pinkett Smith's shaved head. Smith's wife has alopecia, which causes her to lose hair.

His wife did not request Rock, he said previously. Having no idea what he was referring to, he said, "I guess you just never know what another person is going through." Smith had never been publicly questioned about the attack until the late-night US talk show interview. Noah told him that my rage had been bottled up for a long time. I understand how shocking it was. You can imagine how horrible that night was. Previously, he had only released written statements about the altercation, but in July, he posted a YouTube video answering questions from fans.

Smith shares his feelings in the interview

Emancipation, which will be released next week and is eligible for the Oscars next year, was the subject of his appearance on The Daily Show on Monday evening. "It kills me to think that I may have tainted the upcoming awards season with my actions," Smith said after receiving this year's best actor award. She has also resigned from the Academy, which organizes the Oscars, and will not be allowed to attend the ceremony for ten years. The filmmaker replied in a separate interview that he completely understood critics' concerns if they were aware he was not ready to promote his work publicly. The space they need not be ready is something I will respect. In the long run, I want to ensure that my actions are fair to my team. This is a team of amazing people who have excelled throughout their careers," he said.
