Will Smith apologized to Chris Rock for slapping him at the Oscars, calling his actions “inexcusable and unacceptable”.
In a statement, he said, “I would like to publicly apologize to you, Chris. I was out of line, and I was mistaken”.
This comes after the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences condemned Smith for the incident and announced a formal investigation.
On stage, the actor slapped Chris in the face after the comedian made a joke about his wife Jada Pinkett Smith.
