Willow Smith has spoken out for the first time about the slap her father gave Chris Rock at the Oscars.

It’s Willow Smith’s turn to speak about the incident. Four months after her father Will Smith slapped Chris Rock at the Oscars ceremony, the young woman wanted to give her opinion during an interview published on August 5, 2022 in “Billboard “. “I see my whole family as human beings, I love and accept them for all their humanity. Because of the position we are in, our humanity is sometimes not accepted and we are expected to act in a way that is not conducive to healthy human life and honesty,” said the 21-year-old singer. She went on to explain that the ensuing media storm didn’t “shake her up as much as [ses] own inner demons.

As a reminder, the 53-year-old American actor got up from his seat in the middle of the ceremony to hit the comedian after a joke about the shaved head of his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, suffering from alopecia. Once back in his chair, Will Smith yelled, “Leave my wife’s name out of your fucking mouth!” before being awarded the prize for best actor for his role in “The Williams Method”.
