Willow Smith speaks on father Will Smith’s Oscars slap fallout

Willow Smith has addressed her father Will Smith‘s altercation at the Oscars earlier this year.Will infamously slapped presenter Chris Rock on stage during the ceremony in March after the latter made a joke about his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith.Speaking about the events, Willow said the intense media coverage of the slap didn’t “rock me as much as my own internal demons.”“I see my whole family as being human, and I love and accept them for all their humanness,” she told Billboard. “Because of the position that we’re in, our humanness sometimes isn’t accepted, and we’re expected to act in a way that isn’t conducive to a healthy human life and isn’t conducive to being honest.”Late last month, Will posted a video about the altercation called ‘It’s Been A Minute…’, saying in the opening text: “Over the last few months, I’ve been doing a lot of thinking and personal work… You asked a lot of fair questions that I wanted to take some time to answer.”The actor then said in the video: “I’ve reached out to Chris and the message that came back is he’s not ready to talk and when he is, he will reach out.“I will say to you, Chris.
