Tyler Perry Clarifies Interaction With Will Smith After Actor Slapped Chris Rock At Oscars


Months have passed since the infamous Oscar slap when Will Smith struck Chris Rock live on the Oscars stage. However, it’s still a major topic of conversation around Hollywood. Punishments have been handed down and many have spoken about the event, but now Tyler Perry is looking to clarify his own actions following the slap. He was not comforting Will Smith, he was trying to de-escalate the situation.

Recent reports claimed that following the on-stage altercation, Tyler Perry spoke to Will Smith and tried to comfort him. However, in a recent interview at the Tribeca Film Festival, (via Deadline) Perry says that after getting a very close seat to the slap, he checked on both men, and made sure Will Smith knew he did approve of what the King Richard actor had done. Perry explained…
