Willow Smith: A Brief History

Will Smith infamously walked onstage and slapped comedian and presenter Chris Rock on Marc 27, and her famous daughter Willow, 21, has now come to her dad's defense. "My whole family is human, and I love and accept them for all of their humanity," she said in an interview published online today (August 5.) Because of the position that we were placed in, our humanness sometimes isnt accepted and isnt conducive to being honest.

Willows' remarks, which were part of a larger interview, follow her father's raw apologies, which were released via Instagram video on July 29. Ive reached out to Chris and the message that came back is that he's not ready to talk and when he is, he will reach out, Will, 53, said in part, directly to viewers.

Will said that he spent the last three months replaying and understanding what transpired in that moment. And I'm not going to attempt to dissect all of it right now. But I can assure you that there is no part of me that believes that's the appropriate way to deal with a sense of disrespect or insult.

Jada Pinkett Smith, Willow's mother and Will's wife, discussed the shocking moment back in June. "My deepest hope for these two intelligent, capable men to have an opportunity to heal, talk this out, and reconcile," she said in part on a Wednesday, June 1 episode of Red Table Talk.
