Will Smith posted an apology on Instagram to Chris Rock months after he slapped the comedian on stage at the Oscars.

Saying he had taken the last 3 months to ‘work’ on himself he said he now realized how many people he hurt with that fateful smack.

‘I’ve reached out to Chris and the message that came back is that he’s not ready to talk when he is, he will reach out. So I will say to you, Chris, I apologize to you. My behavior was unacceptable and I’m here whenever you’re ready to talk.’ 

He also apologized to Rock’s mother and his entire family, specifically Rock’s mother and his younger brother Tony. 

‘I just didn’t realize how many people got hurt in that moment, so I want to apologize to Chris’s mother. I want to apologize.

‘I want to apologize to Tony Rock… Tony Rock was my man and this is probably irreparable,’ he said. 

He also apologized to Jada Pinkett Smith, his wife whose honor he claimed to be defending with the outburst, and said she had ‘nothing to do with it’.
