Will Smith Slams Jaden Smith

The Magic Mike XXL actress, 50, has previously been open about her struggle with alopecia. Days before the Oscars, she shared a TikTok about how she learned to be proud of her hair. “If I’m doing a cover, everybody’s [like], ‘No, we want your hair straight and flowy,’ when it’s like, ‘All right, cool, but that’s not really what my hair likes to do,’” the Red Table Talk host explained in the March 23 video.

“So, I had to learn to get the courage to go, ‘Nah, I’m not doing that.’ Which is why I feel the freedom today — I don’t give two craps what people think of this bald head of mine. Because guess what? I love it.”

After the ceremony, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced that they were conducting an investigation into the altercation. The investigation is still ongoing, but on Friday, April 1, the Ali star resigned from the Academy.

“My actions at the 94th Academy Awards presentation were shocking, painful, and inexcusable,” the Philadelphia native said in a statement. “The list of those I have hurt is long and includes Chris, his family, many of my dear friends and loved ones, all those in attendance, and global audiences at home. I betrayed the trust of the Academy.”

The “Miami” rapper went on to say that he “deprived other nominees and winners of their opportunity to celebrate and be celebrated for their extraordinary work” when he hit Rock. “I am heartbroken,” he continued. “I want to put the focus back on those who deserve attention for their achievements and allow the Academy to get back to the incredible work it does to support creativity and artistry in film.”

Will Smith

The day after the Oscars, the Gemini Man actor publicly apologized for his behavior. “Violence in all of its forms is poisonous and destructive,” he wrote via Instagram on March 28. “My behavior at last night’s Academy Awards was unacceptable and inexcusable. 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.”

Will also apologized to the Academy in that statement, as well as “the producers of the show, all the attendees and everyone watching around the world.” In his statement of resignation from the Academy, he noted that he would “accept any further consequences the Board deems appropriate.”
