Will Smith has reached out to Chris Rock to apologize for slapping him at this year’s Academy Awards.

However, in a six-minute video posted to Instagram, he revealed that Rock isn’t ready to forgive him.

He went on to insist that he will be there “whenever he wants to talk”.

Smith also explained what many had been wondering: why didn’t he apologize to Rock when he (Smith) accepted his Oscar for Best Actor that night?

He explained that he was ‘fogged out’ during his acceptance speech.

Smith walked onto the stage and slapped Rock after the comic made a joke about Jada Pinkett-Smith.

Smith insisted that his wife did not ask him to do something to defend her, adding “I want to say sorry to my my kids and my family for the heat that I brought on all of us.”
