“Violence in all its forms is poisonous and destructive. My behavior in [Premios Oscar] last night was unacceptable and inexcusable,” Smith wrote. “Jokes at my expense are part of my job, but a joke about Jada’s medical condition was too much to bear and I reacted emotionally“.
“I want to publicly apologize to you, Chris. I crossed the line and I was wrong, “continued the award-winning actor. “I am ashamed and my actions are not indicative of the man I want to be. There is no place for violence in this world of love and kindness“.
“I also want to apologize to the Academy, the producers of the show, everyone in attendance and everyone who watched it around the world. I want to apologize to the Williams family and my family of [la película] King Richard. I am deeply sorry that my conduct has tarnished what has been a beautiful journey for all of us until now. I am a work in progress”.
