Wanda spoke about the incident during her appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. She said she came across Chris at the afterparty and the latter said, “I’m so sorry.” When she asked him why he apologized, he said, “It was meant to be your night. You and Amy and Regina, you did such a great job. I’m so sorry. This is going to be about this.”
Wanda shared her reaction to Will Smith beating Chris Rock at the Oscars, saying, “I felt so terrible for my friend. It was sick. I felt physically ill and I’m still a little traumatized by it.”
She further questioned why no immediate action was taken after the incident. “And in order for them to let him stay in that room and enjoy the rest of the show and receive his award, I thought, ‘How gross is this? This is just the wrong message, “she said. Wanda said that if he had been escorted out of the room, she would have simply announced,” unfortunately, Will could not be here tonight. “
Ellen also agreed with Wanda, who said: “No one has apologized to us. We worked really hard to get the show together.” Wanda was backstage for a moment when the incident took place and took some time to admit it.
