His mother, while sharing her parenting tips in WPDE ABC 15, said she raised ten children, seven birthed and three given children, who all went on to be very very successful. 

She said she has three things she says to her parents, and they are :

1. It's easier to build a child than to repair an adult.

2. You only get one chance to raise a good child. It starts at birth. 

3. The message you sent out to the world should be a good message.

She doesn't have to put degrees behind her name, and when she leaves, she wants her children to carry on her legacy.

His mother spoke about the Oscar slap incident and said when he slapped Chris, he really slapped me

His mother was watching her son hosting the 2022 Academy Awards from her home when all of a sudden, she was stunned to see her son getting a slap from actor Will Smith, which she at first thought to be planned until the censors pitched in and Will Smith began swearing at Chris

During an interview with the NBC affiliate show Soda City Live, she spoke about the incident where she said when he slapped Chris, he slapped all of us, he really slapped me, explaining that when you hurt my child, you hurt me. 

She also said that she was proud of her son for the way he handled the whole situation, and the only thing she could do at the time was to reach out to her son and say to him she was proud of him. 

When asked what would she say if she were able to have a conversation with Will Smith, she said she doesn’t know what she would say other than “What in the world were you thinking”? explaining that many things could have happened. 

Chris could have stepped back and fallen, and Smith could have been taken out in handcuffs.

During the ceremony, Rock cracked a joke about his wife Jada Pinkett Smith’s shaved head, who is suffering from alopecia, the condition where one loses hair. 

Smith could not take it after which he walked up to the stage and slapped him hard. He even scolded him, asking him to keep his wife’s name out of his mouth. 

The following day, Smith publicly apologized for his deeds via his Instagram post that read that 

My behavior at last night’s Academy Awards was unacceptable and inexcusable. Jokes at my expense are a part of the job, but a joke about Jada’s medical condition was too much for him to bear, and I reacted emotionally. 

He also apologized to Chris, the Academy, the producers of the show, all the attendees, and everyone who watched it around the world. 

He also apologized to “the Williams Family and my King Richards Family.”

Smith resigned from the Oscar Academy, stating that his actions at the 94th Academy Awards presentation were shocking, painful, and inexcusable.

While speaking about the Academy’s year ban from the ceremony as a punishment, she said it’s funny because Smith doesn’t go every year. 

They boycotted the year they weren’t even invited, she added. 

She was also not impressed by Smith’s apology, saying that his (Smith) people wrote up a piece saying I apologize to Chris Rock, but something like that is personal, you reach out. 

At the same time, her other son, Tony Rock, also said he didn’t approve of Smith’s Instagram apology.
