WH Says Biden Cannot Condemn Will Smith's Slap Because POTUS Has Not Seen It Yet
"I know the president was not able to watch the Oscars -- didn't see it. So I don't have anything. I don't have any official comment from him or from the White House on this," White House communications director Kate Bedingfield said when asked if the administration condemns Smith's stunt.
"Jada I love you, 'G.I. Jane 2,' can't wait to see it," Rock said moments before the incident. Ironically, Smith was seen laughing when he first heard the joke.
