You know those Smith kids are not shy about their feelings, especially Willow, who is known for being bold and outspoken.

Well, the only daughter of Will and Jada Smith has broken her silence on the now infamous slap her father gave former friend and comedian Chris Rock live on stage at the 2022 Academy Awards.

Willow says she was not fazed by the media firestorm that broke out afterward because, at the end of the day, she sees her family as being “human.”

The 21-year-old singer and Emmy nominee spoke about the incident in a recent interview with Billboard, saying it didn’t derail her creativity or “rock her as much as her own internal demons.”

She explained that, because of the position that her family is in, they are expected to act in a way that “isn’t conducive to a healthy human life and isn’t conducive to being honest.”

Not that we need a reminder on what happened, but at the ceremony back in March, Will Smith hit Rock, who was hosting the Oscars, after the comedian made a joke about his wife’s shaved head not knowing she suffers hair loss due to the autoimmune condition alopecia.

Due to the immediate fallout and backlash, Will Smith resigned from the Academy, which banned him from the awards show for the next 10 years.

Last month, the 53-year-old actor posted a video saying he was “deeply remorseful” about his actions.
