DJ Jazzy Jeff is standing by his friend of nearly 40 years, Oscar winner Will Smith two weeks after the fall out from slapping Chris Rock at the Academy Awards.
During a live event in Chicago earlier this week, Jazzy Jeff discussed the controversy surrounding his “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” co-star with the host of WGCI Morning Show, Kyle Santillian, in front of an audience.
When asked about the incident, Jeff said, “it was a lapse of judgment, and I think the thing that I realized is I don’t know too many people that has had the least amount of lapse of judgment than him.”
Jeff continued to defend his childhood friend, saying, “I can name 50 times when he should’ve smacked the sh*t outta somebody, and he didn’t. So for him to have a lapse of judgment, he’s human,” he continued.
