Michael Bay Will Continue To Work With Will Smith Even After Slap Incident

Latest reports have been coming in from Hollywood industry where ANI has reported that Filmmaker Michael Bay has stated that he would "absolutely" work with Will Smith even after the actor slapped Chris Rock at the Oscars.

According to Variety, Bay, who has directed Smith in two of his signature action movies, 'Bad Boys' and 'Bad Boys II', made this statement while he was speaking to Entertainment Weekly.

He has stated that absolutely, 100 per cent he will work with him. He's a very even-keeled guy. Very even-keeled," Bay said when asked about working with Smith again.

Bay further opened up a bit more about the slap. "At first, immediately I'm like, 'Did this just happen?'" he said.

Bay continued, "Then I saw the yell from Will. That's a real Will yell. Will is an amazing fighter. He's studied boxing. First of all, it's wrong to do, no matter what. Let's just get that out there. 

But when people said, 'Oh, he could have killed him.' No, a slap is different. A punch? Yeah, you can kill someone. 

Will gave him a slap." While he was presenting the best documentary feature award at the 2022 Oscars, Rock made a joke about Smith's wife Pinkett Smith's shaved head.

And this was not taken right by will and he said to keep his wife away from this and slapped Chris Rock at the Oscar.
