Will and Jada Smith To Discuss Chris Rock Oscars Slap on 'Red Table Talk'

The actor has reportedly refused to talk about the issue with several media outlets.

Following his apology on Instagram, Will Smith will reportedly open up about the Chris Rock incident at the 2022 Oscars on Jada Pinkett-Smith’s Red Table Talk.

According to reports, the actor has turned down interviews with several media outlets, including Good Morning America and The Today Show. Sources state that the recent Academy Award-winner declined to speak with reporters at the Oscar after-parties and has agreed to address the situation on his wife’s talk show instead.

“Violence in all of its forms is poisonous and destructive. My behavior at last night’s Academy Awards was unacceptable and inexcusable,” Smith admitted in his apology. “Jokes at my expense are a part of the job, but a joke about Jada’s medical condition was too much for me to bear and I reacted emotionally.”

Stay tuned as we wait for the release of the Smiths’ Red Table Talk episode.
