Will’s Instagram Post 

Will Smith wrote- ‘Violence of any kind is poisonous and destructive. My behavior at the Academy Awards last night was unacceptable and no excuse would work.

‘I want to apologize publicly, Chris. I crossed my limit and I was wrong. I am embarrassed and my actions are not the person I want to be. There is no place for violence in this world full of love and kindness.
