Willow Smith responds to Father Will Smith’s Oscars incident with Chris Rock

Although the 94th Academy Awards put films like in the spotlight dune, KODA and The power of the dog, this year’s most talked about Oscar moment remains Will Smith coming on stage to slap Chris Rock in the face. Earlier this week, Smith broke his silence on the Oscars slap incident and apologized to both Rock and the SNL alum’s mom and explained why he didn’t apologize to Rock during his Best Actor acceptance speech. Now Smith’s daughter, Willow Smith, has responded to what happened between her father and Rock.

Will Smith slammed Chris Rock after the comedian made a joke during his presentation for best documentary about Jada Pinkett Smith being bald (due to the actress suffering from alopecia). A little over four months later, and just days after her father’s public apology, Willow Smith informed Billboard that this incident didn’t hamper her creativity or “rock me as much as my own inner demons.” As she explained:

I see my whole family as human beings and I love and accept them in all their humanity. Because of the position we find ourselves in, our humanity is sometimes not accepted and we are expected to behave in ways that are not conducive to healthy human living and are not conducive to honesty.
