Will Smith has again apologized to Chris Rock for slapping him during the Oscar telecast in a new video, saying that his behavior was “unacceptable” and that he had reached out to the comedian to discuss the incident but was told Rock wasn't ready. “There is no part of me that thinks that was the right way to behave in that moment,” Smith said in the under-six minute video posted online Friday. “I am deeply remorseful and I’m trying to be remorseful without being ashamed of myself.” To Rock, he said: “I’m here whenever you’re ready to talk.” Smith, seated in a polo shirt and white ball cap, spoke directly to a camera, answering pre-selected questions about his behavior at the March 27 Academy Awards, when he slapped presenter Rock after the comedian made a reference about the hairstyle of Jada Pinkett Smith, Smith's wife. Smith also apologized to Rock's family and especially his mother, Rosalie, who was horrified to see her son hurt and told US Weekly that, "When he slapped Chris, he slapped all of us. He really slapped me.” Smith also apologized to Tony Rock, Chris' younger brother. “I didn't realize how many people got hurt in that moment,” Smith said. Smith also apologized to his family “for the heat that I brought on all of us” and his fellow Oscar nominees to have “stolen and tarnished your moment.” He mentioned Questlove by name; it was the musician-director's documentary win for “Summer of Soul (…Or, When the Revolution Could Not Be Televised)” that was interrupted by the slap. Rock was on stage to present the documentary award. Smith also said his wife did nothing to encourage his slap. “Jada had nothing to do with it," he said. “I made a choice on my own.” Pinkett Smith has said that she has alopecia areata, a hair-loss disorder. Following the altercation, the motion picture academy banned Smith from attending the Oscars or any other academy event for 10 years. Smith apologized to Rock in a statement after the Oscars, saying he was “out of line and I was wrong.” “I'm sorry really isn't sufficient,” Smith said in the video, adding that he is hurting because he hasn't lived up to fans' impressions. “Disappointing people is my central trauma.” Many had speculated that Smith would appear on camera to discuss the slap first on Pinkett Smith's online series “Red Table Talk," but he chose to do it in a social media video post without any follow-up questions or surprise queries. ===== Transcript: “Why didn't you apologize to Chris in your acceptance speech? I was fogged out by that point. It's all fuzzy. I've reached out to Chris (Rock) and the message that came back is that he's not ready to talk. And when he is, he will reach out. So, I will say to you, Chris, I apologize to you. My behavior was unacceptable and I'm here whenever you're ready to talk. I want to apologize to Chris's mother. I saw an interview that Chris's mother did and, you know, that was one of the things about that moment I just didn't realize. And, you know, I wasn't thinking, but how many people got hurt in that moment? So, I want to apologize to Chris's mother. I want to apologize to Chris's family, specifically Tony Rock. You know, we had a great relationship. You know, Tony Rock was my man. And just this is, this is probably irreparable. I spent the last three months replaying and understanding the nuances and, and the complexities of what happened in, in that moment. And I'm not going to try to unpack all of that right now, but I can say to all of you, there is no part of me that thinks that was the right way to behave in that moment. There's no part of me that thinks that's the optimal way to handle a feeling of disrespect or insults. After Jada rolled her eyes. Did she tell you to do something? No. It's like, you know, I, I made a choice on my own, from my own experiences, from my history with Chris. Jada had nothing to do with it. I'm sorry, babe. And say sorry to my, my kids and my family for the heat that I brought on all of us. To all my fellow nominees, you know, this is a community. It's like I won because you, you voted for
