Will Packer, the producer of the Oscars, shared his thoughts on Will Smith’s apologies to comedian Chris Rock.
He stated, “I admire the fact that he’s being so upfront about his process,” in an interview with Entertainment Tonight.
Packer said, “he is being very honest, public, and open about his regrets.”
“I think he’s got three decades in this industry of being somebody that is the complete antithesis of who he was in those few seconds, and so I’m pulling for him,” the 48-year-old continued.
Will Smith released a video apologizing to the comedian, right after he slapped Chris Rock at the 94th Academy Awards in March.
