Will Smith has officially apologized for that shocking moment at Sunday’s Oscars when he responded to Chris Rock’s joke about wife Jada Pinkett Smith’s hairstyle — Rock, presenting the award for Best Documentary, cracked that he couldn’t wait to see her in G.I. Jane 2 — by charging the stage and slapping the comedian in the face.

“Violence in all of its forms is poisonous and destructive. My behavior at last night’s Academy Awards was unacceptable and inexcusable,” Smith wrote on Instagram. “Jokes at my expense are part of the job, but a joke about Jada’s medical condition was too much for me to bear and I reacted emotionally. I would like to publicly apologize to you, Chris. I was out of line and I was wrong. I am embarrassed and my actions are not indicative of the man I want to be. There is no place for violence in a world of love and kindness.”
