Sean Penn complained about the reaction to Will Smith's slap at Chris Rock at the Oscars

In a recent interview for Variety magazine, the actor Sean Penn He strongly criticized the moment in which Will Smith he slapped Chris Rock at the Oscars gala 2022.

And, in Penn’s opinion, the fact that people celebrated Smith for his Best Actor win and did not immediately condemn him for his actions was a hypocritical move.

“I don’t know Will Smith. I met him once. He seemed very nice when I met him. He was so stupendously good in ‘King Richard’, the Oscar winner explained in the talk

“Then why the hell did you spit on yourself and everyone else with this stupid thing? Why did I end up in damn jail for what you just did? And you’re still sitting there? Why are you standing and applauding your worst moment as a person?”.

Penn, star of films like ‘I Am Sam’ and ‘Milk’, was referring to a moment in his youth, which occurred in 1987. At that time, Penn was sentenced to 60 days in jail in Los Angeles for hitting and spitting on an extra during the filming of the film ‘Colors’. In the end he was only in prison for 33 days..

That was not the only moment in which Penn has been subdued by justice. In 2010 he was sentenced to three years of probation and 300 hours of community service for attacking a paparazzi.

Will Smith, for his part, has already apologized several times for his “anger attack” at the Oscar ceremony, ensuring that he feels very sorry for his actions..

“I’m human. “I made a mistake and I’m trying not to think of myself as a piece of shit,” Smith said shortly after the altercation.
