Social media’s reaction to Will Smith’s apology video
I could feel the emotion in Will Smith during the apology.— Temporal173 (@B1LLY_M0RR15) July 29, 2022
I could feel the weight of his mistake.
I could feel the long journey and celebrity jokes he’s gotta suffer through to get anywhere near the kind of forgiveness he’s looking for.
I could feel the possibilities.
Will Smith doesn’t give hoot about anybody but will Smith. Just looking out for himself— Judy (@JudyC18) July 29, 2022
I will not spend any of my money on anything he is associated with.
And the Oscar goes to Will Smith. 🤨— #ReadBioFirst George (@Unsportingiam) July 29, 2022
I don’t agree with will smith slapping chris rock but his apology to me is clearly so genuine and sincere. i’m also really not surprised the man snapped like he did, he has been constantly berated by the media for years now and made a mockery whenever he was vulnerable and sad.— fraser 🦦 (@iNabber69) July 29, 2022
