Willow Smith defends her father and says Will Smith is a ‘human’ after Chris Rock’s Oscars slapdown

Willow Smith decided after several months to speak out about the moment her father, actor Will Smith, slapped comedian Chris Rock during the last Oscars 2022. Willow pointed out that making mistakes is part of human nature.

Defending her father’s altercation at the awards show after he slapped host Chris Rock, Willow speaks fondly of his sweet personality.

“I see my whole family as human, and I love and accept them for all their humanity,” she told Billboard.

“Because of the position we find ourselves in, our humanity is sometimes not accepted, and we are expected to act in a way that is not conducive to a healthy human life and is not conducive to honesty.”

What was the incident Willow Smith is referring to?

Will Smith’s slap came after Chris Rock made fun of his wife Jada Pinkett Smith’s Aloepecia medical condition.

The incident that made headlines took place at the Academy Awards on March 27 after Rock, 57, made a comment about Will’s wife Jada Pinkett Smith , appearing in a GI Jane sequel because of her shaved head.
