Will Smith apologises to Chris Rock in a video this time

Will Smith apologised on YouTube on Friday for punching Chris Rock during the live broadcast of this year’s Academy Awards event

In front of millions of viewers across the world, Smith took the stage after Rock made a joke about his wife’s short hair.

For his main performance in King Richard, Smith won the best actor Oscar.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences then barred him from its events for 10 years when he quit a few days later.
