29. Ahem. He already did, by way of his subordinates

The fact that there were 'clarifications' being issued, practically within minutes ... Pretty much speaks for itself.

There are a lot of people who would like to spin this (retroactively) into something else. But the reaction on the day he issued that speech tells the story.

Edit: and apologies for participating in a hijacked thread (the OP is about Smith and Rock)

54. to me Will Smith goes on that list of people who've succeeded through likeability that I never liked

right alongside Ryan Reynolds. But years earlier than him. I guess this means I could go around saying "Ryan Reynolds is the white Will Smith", but most people would probably just be confused.

a kid and then a teenager. I'm not too old yet at 38 but it is a mind fuck for me seeing two iconic figures I grew up watching in the entertainment field go at it that I would never suspect having a beef.

26. Yup. No one would have noticed had the 2 acted out anywhere but a major event like the Awards .

 

They knew where & how to grab the most free & broad headline attention.
They're actors. They know that drama medium better than anyone.

Celebrities stagers use events like major Awards ceremonies or The Met to advertize & elevate their own celebrity brand also.

There's a team of writers that come up with most of the jokes and Will Smith does his best Kayne imitation. The best moment on television remark pretty much says it was staged.

For a pro comic, having people do weird shit to or around you is money in the bank. Some comedians deliberately get themselves into dicey situations just because they know they'll get material out of it.
