Smith took to the stage during the event and slapped Rock after the latter made a joke about his wife Jada Pinkett Smith’s shaved head.

“I think that whatever he [Will] wants to do, that’s what he should do,” Richard told The US Sun.

“People are going to think what they want to think.

“If he apologized [that’s good], however he wants to deal with the situation. I wouldn’t judge anyone.”

“They should let him keep his Oscar, too. When a person [has] worked for [it] so much, then leave it alone.

“I really appreciate him doing so very much so I could never criticize him.”
