It’s been five months since we’ve all seen an internet-breaking moment streamed on live national television. From left to right, the internet came crashing in after The Will Smith and Chris Rock Oscar slap aired for all of the world to see, and it’s safe to say that the slap pretty much stunned the nation and tarnished the careers of actors and actresses we all know and love.

Since ‘the slap,’ Kravitz recently spoke up about her “cancellation status” during a sit-down interview with The Wall Street Journal. She also discussed her provocative directorial debut of “Pussy Island,” which stars Naomi Ackie and Channing Tatum, her current boyfriend.

She wishes that she handled her commentary on the Oscar slap differently.

Despite being cast aside by the internet shortly after posting a now-deleted photo of herself at the 2022 Vanity Fair Oscars party with the caption, “Here’s a picture of my dress at the award show where we are apparently assaulting people on stage now,” she wrote on Mar. 29,  Kravitz recently spoke out to WSJ saying ” I wish I would have handled it differently.” The actress also stated that it’s a scary time to have an opinion due to a fear of being snuffed out by the internet.

“It’s a scary time to have an opinion or to say the wrong thing or to make controversial art or statements or thoughts or anything,” she continued. “It’s mostly scary because art is about conversation. That should, in my opinion, always be the point. The internet is the opposite of conversation. The internet is people putting things out and not taking anything in.”

Shortly after the Oscars slap commentary on Kravitz’s Instagram page, cancel culture quickly attacked her stating that her behavior was hypocritical due to her past relationship with her ex, Ezra Miller from DC’s ‘The Flash.’

Miller was accused of sexual abuse not too long ago and recently claimed that his series of precarious behavior is because of a long line of complex mental health issues he’s faced and is currently facing.

Comments targeted Kravitz’s “friendship” with Jaden Smith when he was underage.

According to the Root, comments under Kravitz’s Vanity Fair party photo addressed “a friendship” the actress had with Smith’s son, Jaden, when he was underage,” as reported by The Root.  “I’m torn about what to say right now, because I’m supposed to just talk about it; I have very complicated feelings around it,” Kravitz said. “I wish I had handled that differently. And that’s okay.”

Since the Oscars, she’s solely been focusing on her creativity.

All matters aside, Kravitz wants to solely focus on her craft after the Oscars and is using her directorial debut of “Pussy Island” as a way to express her art through creativity over commentary.

“I think I’m in a place right now where I don’t want to express myself through a caption or a tweet. I want to express myself through art, ”said Kravitz to WSJ.
