Richard Williams told NBC News, via his son Chavoita LeSane, “We don’t know all the details of what happened. But we don’t condone anyone hitting anyone else unless it’s in self-defence.” Meanwhile, Serena who was at the ceremony was also shocked by the moment and took to her Instagram stories to reveal her reaction. She expressed her speechlessness with her mouth open and added, “I just sat down, because I was like, I gotta put that drink down.”

I have never seen him do that. He is a very people person. And that’s the first time I have ever seen him go off, the first time in his lifetime.”

The actor’s younger sister, Ellen Smith spoke in her brother’s support and said, “Everybody like has been bullied, you know, and abused in some kind of way. And I totally understand. It’s like people are like ‘oh I wish I was in such and such shoes and oh those are my goals and everything,’ but you really don’t know what it takes to get there. I’ve had conversations with him, and it like really kind of broke my heart listening to the things he’s said he had to go through to get to where he is.”

Will has apologised to Chris Rock and The Academy on Instagram, saying he regrets his actions. However, Twitter, as well as celebrities, are divided as The Academy continues a formal investigation into the slapgate incident.
