After Will Smith Apologized For The Slap, Oscars Producer Will Packer Has A Message For The Actor


While it’s been months since the 2022 Academy Awards, the fallout from one particular moment continues to be seen. Namely when Will Smith walked on stage and slapped Chris Rock on national television, shortly before winning the Best Actor Oscar. And after Smith recently apologized for the slap, Oscars producer Will Packer has a message for the actor.

Prior to the infamous slap, Will Smith was an A-lister who had been America’s sweetheart for decades. This is partly why the internet broke when he slapped Chris Rock, after the comedian made a joke at the expense of his wife Jada Pinkett Smith. Smith recently posted a long video apologizing for his actions, which promptly went viral. Academy Awards producer Will Packer was recently asked by ET about said apology, and he got honest by saying:

I love the fact that he’s being so transparent about his process. Clearly he is going through his own personal rehabilitation. I’m pulling for him. I’m pulling for him to continue his own process, but I think this is for him. He needs to do it. I’m wishing you the best, brother.
