Months after joking about Will Smith’s Oscar ban, Trevor Noah has some serious thoughts on the backlash the actor received for the slap

After Will Smith slapped Chris Rock on stage at the Oscars several months ago, the internet was on fire with commentators sharing their thoughts on the matter. A significant number of celebrities have also weighed in on the topic. Many people chastised Smith for his actions, while others came to his defense. One of the many stars to speak out in the aftermath was comedian and political pundit Trevor Noah, who addressed the situation with a bit of humor. But now, months later, the TV personality has some serious thoughts on the backlash that Smith (who recently apologized) has received.

In April, Trevor Noah specifically spoke about Will Smith being punished by the Academy with a ten-year ban. Noah joked that Smith’s situation could be a blessing disguised, because he doesn’t need to dress up, go to the Oscars and “attend a bunch of boring awards he doesn’t care about”. The Daily show the host even joked that he wished he was banned from the Emmys himself so he wouldn’t have to “fake happy” when losing to co-workers like John Oliver.
