Will Smith feels his Oscar slap controversy may hurt his new film Emancipation: 'I completely understand...'
Will Smith is making a comeback to the screen months after his controversial appearance at the 94th Academy Awards where he assaulted host Chris Rock on stage. The fallout saw his popularity plummet sharply. In conversation with Fox 5, Will said about his comeback, “I completely understand — if someone is not ready, I would absolutely respect that and allow them their space to not be ready.” The people on this team have done some of the best work of their entire careers, and my deepest hope is that my actions don’t penalize my team. Emancipation will now release in theatres this Friday for a limited time before it begins streaming on Apple TV+ from December 9. Source: Hindustan Times #WillSmith
