Richard Williams, the father of Venus and Serena, is weighing in on everything between Chris Rock and Will Smith. Speaking with Good Morning Britain, Williams said Smith should be forgiven for slapping comedian Chris Rock at the Academy Awards in 2022. He also said Smith’s 10-year ban from attending the Academy Awards presentation ceremony should be lifted.
“It definitely should be,” Williams said during the interview. “It should be just one day. Or no more than one week at the most.”
