Denzel Washington On Why He Thinks Will Smith Slapped Chris Rock At The Oscars

The reason why Will Smith slapped Chris Rock at the Oscars was about him dropping a joke about his wife Jada Pinkett’s bald head but hey, Denzel Washington has spoken on why he thinks Will Smith hit Chris at the Oscars. The Independent says that Denzel Washington spoke publicly about Will Smith-Chris Rock slap at the Oscars at a Leadership Summit in Washington DC.

This is what Denzel had to say about the Oscars mess;

“There’s a saying when the devil ignores you, then you know you’re doing something wrong. The devil goes, ‘Oh, no, leave him alone, he’s my favourite.’

“Conversely, when the devil comes at you, maybe it’s because he’s trying to do something right. And for whatever reason, the devil got a hold of him that night.”

Denzel also made it known that he and Will Smith prayed after he slapped Chris Rock at the Oscars.

“Fortunately there were people there, not just me but others. Tyler Perry came immediately right over there with me. Some prayers,” Washington said.

“I don’t wanna say what we talked about – but there but for the grace of God go any of us. Who are we to condemn? I don’t know all the ins and outs of this situation, but I know the only solution was prayer. The way I saw it. The way I see it.”

The repercussions of Will Smith slapping Chris Rock at the Oscars are gradually creeping into his career and in the coming days.  He has been banned by the academy for 10 years. His major projects have been put on hold and most of Hollywood has sided with Chris Rock.

Will hasn’t spoken publicly about the slap except for a couple PR statements and it might be best he lay low for a while until this blows over. He might also want to call a divorce lawyer.
