Will Smith apologizes to Chris Rock: “I was out of line and I was wrong”

Published

Will Smith has apologized to Chris Rock following the smacking incident at the Oscars on Sunday that shocked the entire world and the entertainment industry.

In an Instagram post on Monday, Smith humbly admitted his behavior at the Academy Awards ceremony was both ‘unacceptable’ and ‘inexcusable’.

“Violence in all of its forms is poisonous and destructive. My behavior at last night’s Academy Awards was unacceptable and inexcusable,” said Smith in the statement.

The ‘I am Legend’ actor went onstage and slapped Chris Rock without warning in the face after the latter cracked joke about Smith’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith.

Rock jokingly compared Pinkett Smith to ‘G.I. Jane’, the eponymous 1997 film starring Demi Moore in which she shaved her head. Smith’s wife suffers from alopecia which resulted in her loss of hair.

“Jokes at my expense are a part of the job, but a joke about Jada’s medical condition was too much for me to bear and I reacted emotionally,” the Hollywood superstar added.

Smith then personally apologized to the comedian, before adding that ‘there is no place for violence in a world of love and kindness.’

“I would like to publicly apologize to you, Chris. I was out of line and I was wrong. I am embarrassed and my actions were not indicative of the man I want to be,” he said.

He also apologized to the Academy Awards, the attendees, the producers, and to everyone who watched the show, as well as to the Williams family.

Around 40 minutes later into the ceremony, Smith went on to win the ‘Best Actor’ Awards for his role in ‘King Richard’, a film about Richard Williams, tennis superstars Venus and Serena Williams’ father.

Acknowledging the early incident, Smith tearfully said, “I know to do what we do, you gotta be able to take abuse and have people talk people about you. In this business, you gotta have people disrespecting you. And you gotta smile and pretend that’s ok.”

Meanwhile, Chris Rock reportedly decided not to file any police report regarding the incident.

Ngayong opisyal nang ni-launch sa pamamagitan ng series na Dirty Linen ang tambalan nina Francine Diaz at Seth Fedelin o FranSeth, marami ang kinikilig at marami rin ang nagtatanong kung nade-develop na ba sa isa’t isa ang dalawa.

Sa ulat ng PEP, nilinaw ni Francine na kasalukuyan pa nilang kinikilala ni Seth ang isa’t isa at wala pang anumang ugnayan.

“Okay naman, parang we’re still at that stage na getting to know each other. I think yun yung special sa aming dalawa. We’re getting to know each other,” aniya.

“Manligaw? As of now talagang work and we’re professionals. Work is work and that’s it.” wika pa ng aktres.

Nauna nang sinabi ni Francine sa isang interview sa Magandang Buhay na hindi siya nagmamadaling magkaroon ng kasintahan, lalo na at prayoridad niya ang kanyang pamilya.

“Saka na po siguro [ang pag-ibig] kapag naibigay ko na po ang lahat kina mama,” aniya.

Nilinaw niya rin sa beteranang broadcast journalist na si Karen Davila na sa kabila ng pagkaka-link niya sa Kadenang Ginto love team na si Kyle Echarri at kay Seth, hindi pa siya nagkakaroon kailanman ng boyfriend.

“Wala, NBSB po. No boyfriend since birth,” saad niya.

Hinahangaan din ang dedikasyon niya sa pagpapaunlad ng sarili at hindi pagsasantabi ng kanyang pag-aaral sa kabila ng pagiging abala bilang isang artista.

“Palagi rin sinasabi ni Mama na sa showbiz, ’yong fame mo, hindi siya pang-forever. Parang anytime, p’wede kang mawala,” aniya. “So, maganda ’yung may fall back ka. ’Yon din ang sabi sa akin ni Miss Charo [Santos-Concio], kasi, nag-one-on-one kami before. Parang, ‘Nag-aaral ka pa ba? Kasi, mahalaga ’yan. Ang pag-aartista, hindi ’yan tumatagal. Suwertehan lang. Kung magtatagal ka, e, ’di good. Kung hindi, dapat meron kang fall back.”

McCoy De Leon, Elisse Joson nagkabalikan na nga ba?

Published

Ilang linggo matapos umugong ang balitang hiwalay na sina McCoy De Leon at Elisse Joson, naintrigang muli ang mga netizens dahil naispatang magkasama ang dating mag-partner.

Hindi lamang isang beses kung hindi dalawang pagkakataon na umano’y nakitang magkasama sina McCoy at Elisse kaya maraming netizens ang umaasang sana’y inaayos na nila ang gusot sa kanilang relasyon at magkabalikan na nang tuluyan.

Noong isang araw kasi ay may ibinahagi ang isang restaurant kung saan makikitang magkasamang kumakain sa isang mesa sina McCoy at Elisse.

“Stunning couple @elissejosonn and @mccoydeleon at @farmerydeli on a nice Thursday night. Thank you so much, and may God bless you both more! Cute baby, btw,” ayon sa caption ng larawan.

Kasunod nito ay nag-upload din ng larawan ang isang Tiktok user na muling magkasama sina Elisse at McCoy pati na ang kanilang anak na si Felize.

Kuha raw ito sa isang theme park sa Tagaytay City subalit hindi nabanggit kung kailan.

Dahil dito, maraming ‘Marites’ ang natuwa dahil tila raw sinusubakan ng dalawa na ayusin kung anuman ang namagitan sa kanila.

Magugunitang sumabog ang balitang hiwalay na sina McCoy at Elisse noong Disyembre matapos lumabas ang screenshot ng diumano’y naging usapan ng dating Hashtag member at isang babaeng influencer sa Tiktok na iniuugnay sa kaniya.

Lalo pang umigting ang usap-usapan nang maglabas ng public apology ang Kapamilya hunk kasabay ng isang madamdaming mensahe para sa kanilang anak na nagmistulang indikasyon ng kanilang hiwalayan ni Elisse.

Bagama’t hindi na idinetalye ni McCoy kung ano ang naging ugat ng kanilang sigalot, itinanggi naman nitong may babae siya o may third party na sangkot.

Nananatili namang tahimik ang magkabilang kampo para kumpirmahin o itanggi na nagkabalikan na nga sila sa gitna ng mga haka-haka ng mga umaasang netizens.

James Reid nag-sorry dahil sa ‘unforeseen issues’ sa Wavy Baby Music Festival sa Cebu

Humingi ng paumanhin at pnag-unawa si James Reid dahil sa hindi inaasahang pangyayari na nakaapekto sa kanilang performance sa ginanap na Wavy Baby Music Festival sa Cebu noong nakaraang linggo.

Nagkaroon ng problema sa pagtatanghal ng mga artists na kinabibilangan nina James, Ben & Ben at Lisa Soberano dahil na rin sa malakas na pagbuhos ng ulan doon.

Naging isyu rin ang pagkansela sa performances ng mga Cebu-based local artist gaya ng Sepia Times, The Sundown, Mandaue Nights, Three Legged Men, at Wonggoys at ang ginawang free admission na lamang sa unang araw ng concert dahil sa sama ng panahon.

Sa Instagram video na ibinahagi ng Wavy Baby Music Festival, nag-sorry si James sa mga nanood dahil na nga sa nangyari.

“Man, what a crazy, amazing, hectic, wet, and wild weekend we had together at the first ever Wavy Baby Music Festival. I just wanted to take this time to say thank you to all the amazing people who came out to experience Wavy Baby with us,” panimula ng actor-singer.

Ayon pa kay James, sa unang araw pa lamang ay nahirapan na sila subalit itinuloy pa rin ang concert dahil pinaghirapan ito ng kaniyang team at para na rin sa kaniyang mga fans sa Cebu.

“I do want to apologize to you guys, as well. I did everything in my power to give everyone the very experience despite the rain and technical difficulties. I promise to make it up to you, guys, and all grievances will be answered by the team to the upcoming days,” wika niya.

Humingi rin ng paumanhin ang aktor sa mga local at international artists na hindi na nakaakyat ng entablado para makapagtanghal.

Aniya, “I would like to sincerely apologize to our Cebu artists … for not being able to share the stage with you this time but thank you for allowing us to come and through this amazing experience. I promise we’ll make it up to you, you guys are all legends, thank you.”

Sa hiwalay na pahayag na inilabas ng organizer na EventEscape Manila, humingi rin ito ng paumanhin at nagbigay ng paliwanag.

“The 2-day event had its share of logistical challenges due to unforeseen circumstances, and for this, we sincerely apologize. Our event venue, staging, and programming were significantly impacted due to the poor weather conditions all over Cebu. Given the extreme condition of the event venue that we had to remedy, our team and local partners were stretched as we prioritized the safety and security of everyone,” bahagi ng kanilang pahayag.

“We hear you and we appreciate your feedback. We would like to assure you that our team is working on resolving these issues. We take this opportunity to learn and improve. We hope for your patience and understanding,” dagdag pa nito.
