Will Smith finally apologized to Chris Rock for slapping him at the Oscars ceremony this year. The actor’s apology came four months after the incident, and many consider it to be too late. The comedian seems to have already moved on with his life as well.

According to People, the comedian has moved on with his life even before the apology video from Friday. A source close to the comedian noted that he finds it unnecessary to speak with the actor. He also said that Will Smith needs to deal with his issues first.

Chris doesn’t need to talk. This is clearly something that bothers Will more than Chris. Will needs to deal with his issues. Chris is fine.

Chris Rock mocked the incident and made jokes about it after the King Richard actor released his apology video. The source said this is a healthy sign and the aftermath of the incident has not taken over the comedian’s life.

The fact that he is making jokes about it already is a good thing. That means he is assessing it. But the stress of the slap and the aftermath has not taken over his life. Quite the opposite.

Will Smith seemed to be profoundly sorry for his conduct. The event has had serious ramifications for the actor. He is also barred from attending Academy events for the next ten years. In the end, at least Chris Rock got some new material out of things.
