The Oscars Award ceremony this year became memorable for all the wrong reasons. This is because Will Smith shockingly slapped Chris Rock following a joke about Smith’s wife. Terry Crews also commented on the whole situation as well.
Chris Rock is also not going to forgive Will Smith after what he did, but he still has yet to properly open up about the incident. Rock even said that he wants money to talk about it, which led to 50 Cent making an amusing joke about the situation.
Will Smith has been banned from attending the Oscars for the next 10 years. Terry Crews also then made his way to India recently so that he could go on a spiritual journey.
While speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Terry Crews shared his thoughts on Will Smith slapping Chris rock. Crews stated that he believes Chris Rock’s reaction to the slap saved Hollywood.
“Both Will Smith and Chris Rock are dear, dear friends of mine. I love them both as brothers, but there was a time in my life [where] I was Will Smith at that moment, and let me tell you, I’ve done worse than Will.
Way overkill, just … the punishment did not fit the crime. Like, people were like, ‘What in the world are you doing?’ My wife even had to be like, ‘You got to promise me you will never go off like this. You did not need to pick this man up and put him on his head, on the concrete.
When I look back, by what Chris did, by just deciding to hold everything together, it actually, I think in a lot of ways saved Hollywood, because if there would’ve been a brawl on that stage, I don’t know if Hollywood would’ve ever gotten any respect again, you know? It’s hard to even imagine what would’ve happened.
The definition of toughness where I grew up and the way I was, it was always the ability to strike, the ability to punch, the ability to set things straight, to even the scor.But the true definition of toughness was what Chris did in taking a punch and then holding everything together and then showing tremendous endurance and resilience in the middle of obstacles.”
Jada Pinkett Smith also said that she wished Will Smith did not end up slapping Chris Rock. Chris Roch has moved onto better things in life, but it is unlikely he’ll ever open up about the incident by the looks of it.
