With Smith’s category winner yet to be announced, many were hoping that if the actor actually wins the award and addresses the crowd, he’ll apologize for losing his cool.

While many have expressed their opinion that Smith should have also apologized to Chris for his violent action, even though it was just a joke, the Oscar-winner has yet to issue an apology and it seems unlikely he will do so he thought. In his place, he was right to protect his wife and family from making fun of them at the Oscars.
