Will Smith tears as he accepts the Best Actor Oscar

Actor Will Smith has apologized to comedian Chris Rock after he slapped him at the Oscars, saying his behavior was “unacceptable and unforgivable”.

“I would like to publicly apologize to you, Chris,” Smith said in a statement. “I went overboard and was wrong.”

It comes after the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences – which awards the Academy Awards – condemned Smith over the incident and announced a formal review.

Smith slapped Rock on stage after the comedian made a joke about Jada Pinkett Smith’s wife.
