Will Smith Forgives Himself in First Sit-Down After ‘Horrific’ Oscars on ‘Daily Show’
Comedy CentralEight months after he shocked the world by slapping comedian Chris Rock during the Academy Awards’ live broadcast—and then winning an Oscar moments later—Will Smith finally sat down for his first substantial TV interview with The Daily Show’s Trevor Noah.Aside from a brief semi-apology video posted to his own YouTube channel over the summer, Smith has stayed mostly silent about the incident that upended his superstar career. But now that he has a new Civil War epic Emancipation premiering on Apple TV+, which could land him another Oscar nomination despite being barred from attending the ceremony for 10 years, he is back out on the press trail. And he found a sympathetic interviewer in Noah, who is in his final run of episodes before departing the host chair at the end of next week.The two men began with some small talk about Smith’s recent world travels before pivoting to the new film, which he described as a “freedom movie” as opposed to a “slave movie.” But eventually, they had to get to the questions that, until now, had still yet to be answered about what really happened on Oscar night 2022.Read more at The Daily Beast.

It’s Sickening How Many Guns Were Sold on Black Friday
Illustration by Luis G. Rendon/The Daily BeastBy the time Thanksgiving rolled around this year, the nation had witnessed 609 mass shootings but had not lost its appetite for guns. Data obtained by The Daily Beast reveals that more Americans tried to buy firearms on Black Friday than they did last year.In just the 13 days leading up to the annual post-Thanksgiving shopping orgy, there had been enough gun violence to weary any sane county. Three dead and two wounded at the University of Virginia. Five dead and 17 shot at a gay nightclub in Colorado. Six dead at a Virginia Walmart, including a 16-year-old new hire who had spent his first paycheck on a present for his mother.But come Friday, Americans flocked to buy guns just as they did for Apple AirPods and Revlon One Step hair dryers. The FBI said that its National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) conducted 192,749 background checks—up from 187,585 last year and dispiritingly close to the record of 203,086 set in 2017.Read more at The Daily Beast.
