“(If I were Chris Rock) I announced this morning I was suing Will for $200 million because that video is going to be around forever, it’s going to be everywhere.

He confirmed that he and Will Smith did not have personal problems, Jim only gave his opinion and felt Will Smith’s actions at the event could not be justified, even for whatever reason.

“(The slap) came out because Will felt a fit inside him which was frustrating. I wish him the best, I’m not against him. He did a lot of good things, but it wasn’t the right moment. It overshadowed everyone’s proud moment. It was a selfish moment.” the lid.
