Mesi dopo, le persone lo sono ancora parlando del momento scioccante degli Oscar 2022 in cui Will Smith è salito sul palco per schiaffeggiare Chris Rock dopo aver fatto una battuta su sua moglie, Jada Pinkett Smith. Dal momento che tutto il dramma è andato giù, le persone hanno avuto molte opinioni. A causa delle sue azioni, l’Accademia ha schiaffeggiato Smith con un divieto di 10 anni dal partecipare agli Oscar. Ma nonostante la sua assenza, Smith potrebbe comunque guadagnare un trofeo per qualsiasi premio vinto.
Smith also told viewers that he wanted to apologize to Rock's mother and other family members. "I want to apologize to Chris' family, specifically Tony Rock. We had a great relationship. Tony Rock was my man. This is probably irreparable," he added. The reviews on Smith's apology are mixed, but "The View's" Ana Navarro had no problem weighing in on the drama.
Ana Navarro wants people to focus on something else
Some people could probably talk about the brawl between Will Smith and Chris Rock all day long. However, that's certainly not the case for "The View's" Ana Navarro. The television personality did not mince words when it came to the heated Oscar moment between the pair during an August episode of the show, as Navarro shared her thoughts on Smith's recent apology.
"I take his apology for what it is ... I love Will Smith. I love Chris Rock." Navarro shared before quickly changing her tune. "Can we just talk about victims? .. Let's talk about Ukraine. Let's talk about the 10-year-old who got raped in Ohio and couldn't get a damn abortion. So we have people with privilege ... for the love of God ... Let's stop talking about this, and let's start talking about some real victims in this world and this country, and let's give this guy some grace in my opinion." We told you she didn't hold anything back! Other panelists Joy Behar and Sara Haines also commented, but nobody else had as passionate of a stance as Navarro.
In April, Navarro shared similar thoughts on the incident, saying on the show (via The Wrap), "I'm so tired of talking about this, I'd like to slap myself." Navarro also defended Smith's long track record of doing good and reminding the audience that "none of us should be judged by our worst moment." Preach Navarro, preach.
