After his wife Jada Pinkett posted a powerful message about the Oscars and black actors, her husband has finally spoken.

Famed actor Will Smith has decided to skip the Oscars according to KTLA TV. Smith said on ‘Good Morning America’:

“Diversity is the American superpower. That’s why we’re great.

…This is so deeply not about me. This is about children that are gonna sit down, and they’re gonna watch this show, and they’re not going to see themselves represented.”

When asked if he knew Jada was posting that video, he states he had no idea but was proud of her.

“I was out of the country at the time.

I was knocked over, you know? I was happy to be married to that woman.

But for Jada, had I been nominated and no other people of color were, she would have made the video anyway. We’d still be here having this conversation”

KTLA TV reported: “(Will) Smith, the star of the drama “Concussion,” was in the running for a best actor nomination this year, but didn’t get one. For the second year in a row, none of the nominees in the top categories are minorities, which has spurred a week of outrage and tinsel town soul-searching.”
