From the last ceremony of the Oscar awards, it seems that Will Smith can only talk about his infamous slap, even when he should be promoting his new film. This was precisely what happened during a talk about emancipation, his great project, which he expects is not harmed by his actions a few months ago.
In a talk with Kevin McCarthy, Smith expects the public not to punish Emancipation for his actions committed in the Oscar, although he understands if the public is not yet ready to forgive him. This was what he said about it:
I completely understand that if someone is not ready, I would respect him absolutely and allow his space not to be. My biggest concern is my team... My greatest hope is that my actions do not penalize my team. At this point, for that I am working.
For its part, Emancipation is a film based on a real story. Smith plays a fugitive slave named Peter, who escapes a Louisiana plantation. Peter goes to the north to join the Army of the Union in the Civil War of the United States. The film will arrive at selected cinemas on December 2, before its launch on Apple TV+ on December 9.
Recall that after his infamous slap, Will Smith resigned from the Academy of Arts and Film Sciences. Along with this, it was excluded from the Oscar and other academy events during the next decade, although its prize, which won moments after the coup, still retains it.
In related issues, the popularity of Will Smith suffers a strong blow. Similarly, Chris Rock makes fun of Smith's apologies.
