Since he smacked Rock in the face in March, Smith has only released one new film, Emancipation.
Why did he done that
In response to a joke that Rock had made regarding Smith's wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, and her baldness, an autoimmune condition that results in loss of hair, Smith had smacked the comic.
The response for his joke at that event
Smith has issued numerous apologies and resigned from the Academy since the incident.
The apologies made by Smith
The actor stated that he would comprehend if people are not prepared to see his film because of this in a new conversation with FOX 5 DC reporter Kevin McCarthy.
What people thinking about his new film
Because not everyone is ready, I would entirely respect that and give them the space they need to not be ready, Smith said to McCarthy.
What Smith said
"My deepest worry is my team – [director Antoine Fuqua] has accomplished what I think is the best accomplishment of his entire career," he said.
His "some of the greatest writing of their entire careers" he said, adding that his team has produced "deepest hope is that my actions don’t penalise my team."
