Are the masses ready to support Will Smith again after he slapped Chris Rock at the Oscars in March of this year?

That'll be determined in a few days since his new film Emancipation is scheduled for a December 2 release.

The rapper-turned-actor is now promoting the project, and he stopped by The Daily Show with Trevor Noah to discuss it. Of course, he also talked about the slap. [Jump to the 10:23-mark]

“That was a horrific night, as you can imagine,” said Will. “There’s many nuances and complexities to it but at the end of the day, I just, I lost it. I guess what I would say, you just never know what somebody’s going through ... I was going through something that night. Not that that justifies my behavior at all. I would just say, you’re asking what did I learn, it’s that we just gotta be nice to each other, man ... And I guess the thing that was most painful for me is, I took my heart and I made it hard for other people. It’s like, I understood the idea that hurt people hurt people.”

Do you think Will's career will ever be the same as it was pre-slap?
