After that, Smith walked onto the stage and slapped Rock. Surprisingly, the comedian kept his cool and still made the audience laugh; despite Smith screaming, "Keep my wife’s name out of your f*****g mouth." Further, Rock even joked, saying, "Will Smith just smacked the sh*t out of me."

"Jokes at my expense are a part of the job, but a joke about Jada's medical condition was too much for me to bear and I reacted emotionally. I would like to publicly apologize to you, Chris. I was out of line and I was wrong. I am embarrassed and my actions were not indicative of the man I want to be. There is no place for violence in a world of love and kindness."

Similarly, he also apologized to "the Academy, the producers of the show, all the attendees and everyone watching around the world."
