It's been a couple of days since Will Smith and Chris Rock's shocking altercation at the 94th Academy Awards but it seems like the issue isn't going to die down anytime soon. In fact, fans and celebrities continue to air their respective sentiments regarding "the slap that was heard around the world" and surprisingly enough, a lot of people are siding with Rock.
One of the celebrities who condoned Smith's behavior was actress Zoë Kravitz, who fresh off The Batman's box office triumph has become one of the most talked-about stars in Hollywood.
On Instagram, Kravitz posted a photo of herself during the red carpet captioned with a massive shade thrown at Smith for "assaulting" Rock. In a subsequent post, the 33-year-old posted her after-party look from the spectacle captioned: "and here is a picture of my dress at the party after the award show - where we are apparently assaulting people on stage now."
However, despite taking a stand regarding the issue, Zoë's shady remarks ultimately backfired as fans unearthed an old interview where she made "inappropriate" comments about a then 14-year-old Jaden Smith, Will's son. In a 2013 interview with V Magazine, Zoë, who has 24 at the time made several suggestive comments about a teenage Jaden.
During one part of the interview, she says: "There were moments that I was hanging out with Jaden and thinking, 'I can’t believe you’re 14, I have to check myself, like what I say to you.'"

Naturally, her old comments put the rising actress in hot water with a lot of fans labeling her as a "predator". As it stands, Kravitz has yet to address the matter but I'm pretty sure she'll have no choice but to talk about it soon, especially now that her name is being dragged all over social media.
Meanwhile, The Batman is still showing in cinemas worldwide.
