Back in July, the actor said he had “done a lot of thought and personal work.” He begins by apologizing to Rock, saying, “I reached out to Chris and the message that came back is that he’s not ready to speak and when he is he will get in touch. So I’m going to tell you, Chris, I apologize to you. My behavior was unacceptable and I’m here whenever you’re ready to talk.”
The actor also apologizes to Chris Rock’s mother, adding: “I saw an interview his mother did. That’s one of the things about that moment that I didn’t realize, I didn’t think about, but how many people got hurt in that moment.
“So I want to apologize to Chris’ mother; I want to apologize to Chris’ family, especially Tony Rock [Chris’s younger brother]. We had a great relationship. Tony Rock was my man. It’s probably irreparable.”
“And I’m not going to try to unpack all of that now, but I can tell you all that there’s no part of me that thinks that was the right way to behave at that moment. No part of me thinks this is the optimal way to deal with a feeling of disrespect or insult.”
The incident at the Oscars led to widespread criticism of Smith. Chris Rock himself has not yet commented on the matter.
