After the Will Smith-Chris Rock slap drama, the Academy Award-winning actor is reported to spill his guts on the ongoing controversy on his wife Jada Pinkett Smith’s Red Table Talk.

Hence, Will has reportedly turned down invites from Good Morning America and The Today Show to talk about the incident.

Will even skipped the press line last night after winning the Best Actor award for his role in King Richard. Multiple outlets also reported that he refused to talk to reporters at the afterparties.

According to Radar, Will and his team have been flooded with offers from outlets pleading with the Academy Award winner to choose them as his outlet to talk about Chris.

But the couple had a conversation where they agreed to address the situation on Jada's super-successful Facebook show.

The mentioned publication further claimed that Will and Jada would film the episode as early as this week.

The famous couple apparently feels like Red Table Talk is the best platform for the actor to explain his side of things clearly.

Meanwhile, on Monday, Will took to Instagram to issue an official apology, admitting he was wrong for striking Chris onstage at the 2022 Academy Awards.

"Violence in all of its forms is poisonous and destructive. 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," Will began.

He then said, "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."

He ended his lengthy statement by stating that there is no place for violence in the world of love and kindness.

Will Smith and Chris Rock Slap Drama

If you are new to this whole saga, know that Will publicly slapped Chris at the Oscars night held at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles on March 27, 2022.

The comedian had come out to present the Oscar for Best Documentary. Upon his arrival on the big stage, he naturally began cracking jokes.

He then saw Will and the actor's wife, Jada, seated in a place of honor; so, he took the opportunity to make what he thought was a tame joke.

He stated that Jada, who rocked a bald style because of autoimmune disorder alopecia, looked like she could star in G.I. Jane, a 1997 action drama film in which the protagonist, actress Demi Moore, has similar looks.

Will initially laughed at the joke but later indicated that he did not take kindly to the jest mocking his wife for embracing her genetic disorder. Hence, he stood up from his place, walked towards Chris, who was on the stage and slapped him hard on his face.

After punching Chris in the face, Will screamed at him, saying, "Keep my wife's name out of your [expletive] mouth!"

The actor later went on to win the Academy Award for Best Actor for his performance in King Richard, making him the fifth black actor to win the Oscars for Best Actor.
