Will Smith Tears Up Over ‘Horrific’ Oscars Night in First Late-Night Interview Since Slap

Will Smith teared up while opening up about the 2022 Oscars moment where he slapped presenter Chris Rock on stage after the comedian made a joke about his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith. In his first late-night interview since the incident, Will joined “The Daily Show With Trevor Noah,” on the Monday night and reflected on the March award show. “I was gone. That was a rage that had been bottled for a really long time. I understand the pain,” Will said.
