    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.

    "The Bachelor" host Chris Harrison demanded a $25 million payout after being booted from the show — and threatened to spill all the franchise’s dirty secrets if he didn’t get it, sources told Page Six. "He has nearly 20 years of dirt," an ABC source said Tuesday. "Instead of handing them a rose, he was absolutely ready to hand them a lawsuit detailing all the behind-the-scenes details."

    Former "Bachelorette" Rachel Lindsay said she has accepted longtime host Chris Harrison's apology for defending a contestant after photos resurfaced of her attending an "Old South" themed party at a plantation in 2018. On Thursday, "Good Morning America" aired Michael Strahan's interview with Harrison in which he voiced his regret for defending current "Bachelor" contestant Rachael Kirkconnell and apologized to Lindsay for how he treated her. "I am an imperfect man. I made a mistake and I own that. I believe that mistake doesn't reflect who I am or what I stand for. I am committed to the progress, not just for myself, also for the franchise," Harrison said when asked why he defended Kirkconnell last month. Harrison also said he's surprised by his own behavior and for how he treated past "Bachelorette" star Rachel Lindsay. It was Harrison's words to Lindsay during an "Extra" interview last month that resulted in his racism controversy.

    Rachel Lindsay has said she accepts Chris Harrison's apology and that it's time to 'move forward' after The Bachelor host sparked a racism row when he defended a contestant who attended a plantation-themed ball. Former Bachelorette star Lindsay, who was the first black lead on the show, told Extra co-host Billy Bush Thursday 'I need to accept the apology, so we can all be better from this situation' hours after Harrison issued a public apology to her on Good Morning America.  Harrison admitted in the interview with GMA host Michael Strahan that aired Thursday morning he was 'insensitive' and 'made a mistake' as he vowed to return to the reality show and 'be part of the change'. But his apology was dismissed by Strahan who suggested his contrition was just 'surface' and a ploy by his fellow ABC colleague to get his $8 million a year job back.  Strahan's comments come just days after he was rumored to be ABC's top choice to replace Harrison as the host for the live 'After the Final Rose' special - a role thought to be...

This week Good Morning America host Michael Strahan called out The Bachelor host Chris Harrison for issuing what he believes to be a lackluster – and perhaps even insincere – apology for his part in the show’s current racism scandal.

    "The Bachelor" host Chris Harrison is "deeply pathetic" for apologizing for comments about cancel culture after taking a leave from the ABC series, "The Rubin Report" host Dave Rubin told "America’s Newsroom". "Look, I know you're not a racist. You know you're not a racist … but the second you apologize to the woke mob, well, congratulations. You are now living on your knees forever," Rubin said. Harrison told "Good Morning America" earlier Thursday he "made a mistake" by defending current "Bachelor" contestant Rachael Kirkconnell after photos resurfaced of her attending an "Old South"-themed party in 2018.

    Good Morning America host Michael Strahan blasted his ABC colleague Bachelor host Chris Harrison on Thursday morning by suggesting Harrison's apology for defending a racism scandal on his show were insincere and just a means of getting his job back.

Speaking to Extra’s Billy Bush on Monday, Lindsay opened up about the controversy, admitting that she believes Harrison is making the right decision by stepping down.  "Chris has stepped aside, which I think is the right decision because, like he said, he needs to take time to get educated and on a profound and productive level to use his word," Lindsay explained. "And I think he needs to understand what was done, what was wrong, and what he said in that interview, and he needs time. He's stepped away to do that."
