Yes to this ^
Thanks for sharing - that was EXCELLENT! It totally summed up my thoughts and gut feelings so far. Unless other facts come to light, it makes absolutely no logical sense that WS would fake or plan an event to destroy his own career and reputation, especially when he was up for an Oscar. While I absolutely abhor WS's behavior and arrogance, his acceptance speech is really sad to watch. He seemed thoroughly broken and desparate at that point. It's like the unbearable weight of what he had done had finally hit him at that moment and he's grasping at straws to justify himself.
This is interesting:
New video has emerged of the moments following Will Smith's slap of Chris Rock at the Oscars, showing Jada Pinkett Smith's reaction as she looked on from a table near the stage.
So... it looks like JPS got her ultimate revenge and thoroughly enjoyed it at the expense of her own husband. WS is ultimately responsible for his actions, but her response is just as disgusting.
