    Four months after Will Smith shocking slap of Chris Rock onstage at the 2022 Academy Awards, the “King Richard” actor has sparked another debate by releasing a nearly 6-minute video Friday, publicly apologizing to Rock on camera for the first time. Within hours of the video’s release, some people online praised Smith for the courage and humility he demonstrated with his apology, but others questioned the movie star’s sincerity, even as he expressed profound remorse. Indeed, at points in the video, Smith appeared to reach deep within himself to convey the sometimes nonstop anguish that a person, known to usually be positive and decent, can feel when they make a mistake or a choice that causes serious harm to someone else. “I’m deeply remorseful, and I’m trying to be remorseful without being ashamed of myself,” Smith said. “I’m human. I made a mistake and I’m trying not to think of myself as a piece of (expletive).” In his video, Smith responded to questions he has received since the March 27 awards show about whether he feels bad about letting...

    Chris Rock’s younger brother Kenny refuses to accept what he sees as Will Smith’s fake apology for assaulting his brother Chris at last Sunday’s basement-rated Oscar telecast. “No, I don’t accept it because I don’t think it was genuine,” Kenny Rock told the far-left Los Angeles Times. “I think his publicist and the people that work under him probably advised him to do that.” “I might have looked at it differently had he initially apologized when he got on the stage and cried and accepted the award,” he added, “but he didn’t, so, right there that tells me that it is something else.” That’s correct. During that pathetic, teary Best Actor Oscar acceptance speech, which came about 40 minutes after he committed an unprovoked assault against Chris Rock over a silly joke, Smith apologized to the Academy and his fellow nominees, but not to the guy he hit. Kenny, one of Chris’s six siblings, added this: It eats at me watching it over and over again because you’ve seen a loved one being attacked and there’s nothing you can do...

    Will Smith’s carefully scripted apology to Chris Rock over the slap that shocked the world may have come too late to save his Oscar dream, movie insiders said last night. Almost a day had passed before Smith, 53, issued a stock ‘crisis management-style’ message saying sorry to Rock for striking him on live TV during the ceremony. But the apology on social media yesterday failed to quell calls for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to strip the star of the best actor award he collected just 20 minutes after the assault – or even kick him out. Crisis meetings, which began within minutes of the slap, continued across Los Angeles all day as the industry tried to work out what to do. Smith’s interim fate could be decided today as Academy governors meet for their usual post-Oscars debrief. However, the saga could run on until a full meeting in May.

    Now that Nick Castellanos has homered, the Will Smith and Chris Rock Oscars takes can end. The apology tour is complete. Thank goodness. I’m not sure how much more of that Twitter.com could take without combusting on its own complete and utter chaos. What Castellanos does is incredibly valuable. It is an art form and ought to be respected as such. Each and every apology — normally dry statements composed of the same cliches over and over again — he ends with an exclamation point. No, it’s better than an exclamation points, because it’s baseball. In the coming days, Smith and Rock will surely apologize, either officially or through representatives, for their actions during the Oscars.

    NEW YORK (WABC) -- Janet Hubert, who played the original Aunt Viv in the hit 1990s sitcom "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air," is setting the record straight about why she left the show -- and opening up about her feud with Will Smith.Speaking to Sandra Bookman on WABC's "Here & Now" interview program, Hubert explained her disappearance from the show after the third season, when she was replaced by Daphne Maxwell Reid, leaving many viewers puzzled.Contrary to what many people assumed, Hubert was not fired from the show.

My agent said you cannot accept this. They'll come back, but they didn't," Hubert explained.Hubert viewed the contract as an attempt to "put her in her place." but well before the contract offer she was experiencing friction on the set."They told me I had to go into my dressing room in between takes because I wasn't laughing at Will's...
