Denzel Washington has shared his ideas on Will Smith slapping Chris Rock all the way through Sunday night time’s Oscars after he was once observed consoling the Academy Award-winner following the incident.
“Well, there’s a saying, ‘When the devil ignores you, then you know you’re doing something wrong,’” Washington started Saturday morning all the way through a dialogue about his occupation and religion with creator and bishop T.D. Jakes all the way through his management summit, Variety experiences.
“The devil goes, ‘Oh no, leave him alone, he’s my favorite,’” he persevered. “Conversely, when the devil comes at you, maybe it’s because he’s trying to do something, right? And for whatever reason, the devil got ahold of that circumstance that night.”
Washington, Tyler Perry, Bradley Cooper and others have been observed talking to Smith all the way through the industrial spoil that adopted the actor smacking Rock around the face for a G.I. Jane comic story geared toward spouse, Jada Pinkett Smith.
During Will’s acceptance speech for Best Actor, Smith thanked Washington for sharing those sensible phrases: “At your highest moment, be careful, that’s when the devil comes for you.”
The “Tragedy of Macbeth” superstar persevered, “Fortunately there have been other folks there. Not simply me, however others, Tyler Perry, got here straight away proper over there with me. [Said] some prayers.
“I don’t wanna say what we talked about, but there but for the grace of God go any of us. Who are we to condemn? I don’t know all the ins and outs of the situation, but I know the only solution was prayer, the way I see it,” Washington added.
“Violence in all of its forms is poisonous and destructive. My behavior at last night’s Academy Awards was unacceptable and inexcusable.”
