According to a new TikTok video, Will Smith appears to be referencing his slap incident with Chris Rock at the Oscars. Smith and his coworker, who goes by the handle @missmoneyworking, posted a duet on TikTok.
Smith shows great attention to the user before offering his opinion in the short clip.
The Twitter user @missmoneyworking writes, “I’m going to tell you something, f**king nuts.” When you hear someone say, “This is literally — it looks stupid, but it will revolutionize your life,” you know they’re trying to convey the idea that the person’s life is about to become much more interesting and fascinating.
To continue, she says “You need just pick up a nonliving thing and peer into its eyes to get its opinion of you. For instance, you might pick up a pen and ask it how it sees you; an instant mental reaction would likely follow. Find out what people think about your car by inquiring. The opinions of your financial resources may be solicited.”
As his interest in the concept grows, Smith decides to give it a shot with his chosen item: the 54-year-first-ever old’s Academy Oscar, which he earned in 2022 for his role in the Richard Williams biopic, King Richard.
Once the band finishes their final song, Smith is shown alone. Smith seems about to ask Oscar what he thinks of him, but the video ends before he can.
Smith seems to be referencing the major incident from last year, in which he smacked Rock for making a joke about his wife Jada Pinkett Smith’s baldness, without really mentioning it.
An instant reaction was seen following the slap heard ’round the world a year ago. Some of Smith’s initiatives had to be scrapped or put on indefinite hold because of the 10-year ban he received from the Academy.
Since then, Smith has released a video online in which he apologizes to the comic for his “inappropriate” behavior. There is not a single part of me that believes it was the right way to behave at that time,” he told viewers in July. “I don’t think that’s the greatest way to handle insults or wounded feelings.”
Last month, Smith and Martin Lawrence revealed that they will collaborate on Bad Boys 4, suggesting that the repercussions from last year’s event had subsided.
