It's been almost a month since Will Smith slapped Chris Rock at the Oscars, a move that both overshadowed the Academy Award he won shortly thereafter. Days later, he apologized publicly and was able to leave the show for a decade. However, he hasn't been since in public since.
Smith was at a private airport in Mumbai, India. What is his experience there? A source that he's there for spiritual purposes. He'll practice yoga, meditate, and presumably work on himself, as he promised in his apologies released weeks ago.
"Change takes time, and I'm committed to doing the work I'm required to ensure that I never again permit violence to overtake reason," he said at the time.
Rock, who was struck after making a joke about his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, hasn't exactly laid low. He's been doing events that have seen a significant increase in sales. In the meantime, awards events have already taken to prevent such incidents in their own ceremonies.
