Serena Williams Reflects On Will Smith’s Oscars’ Slap As He Jokes About His Year: ‘We’re All Human’

Serena Williams is reflecting on the shocking moment Will Smith slapped Chris Rock at the 2022 Academy Awards. In a new interview with CBS Mornings’ Gayle King, the tennis star said while the startling incident did seem to overshadow the presentation of the award that followed, she is encouraging people to show some compassion and self-reflection. “I’ve made a mistake…we’re all imperfect and we’re all human and let’s just be kind to each other. So, that’s often forgotten a lot,” she said.
