Zoe Kravitz’s ‘Accident’ Rumors Stemmed from Controversial Remarks on Will Smith’s Oscars Incident

Netizens have gone too far by constantly backlashing Zoe Kravitz for her previous remarks.

Zoe Kravitz is back in the headlines after a user, @JozuJoestar, tweeted ‘she had one of the greatest runs of all time before that tragic accident.’

However, this focus on her supposed accident actually originates from the controversy surrounding her remarks about Will Smith’s incident at the Oscars.


  • Recent attention to Zoe Kravitz’s alleged accident originates from controversy surrounding her remarks about the Will Smith Oscars incident.
  • In 2022, Zoe passed a comment on Will Smith’s slap incident on Instagram, leading to widespread backlash.
  • After getting a lot of criticism from audience, Kravitz later wished to have handled the situation differently.

During that time, Zoe expressed her opinion criticizing the Will Smith-Chris Rock controversy on her social media, which eventually turned out against her.

Zoe Kravitz’s Scandals Resurface as ‘Tragic Accident’ That Ultimately Crashed Her Career

In 2022, following Will Smith’s slap on comedian Chris Rock at the Oscars, Zoe expressed her thoughts on the incident via Instagram, sparking intense debate and criticism.

She posted a photo on the platform (which is now deleted) with a caption criticizing the incident, stating,

“Here’s a picture of my dress at the show where we are apparently screaming profanities and assaulting people on stage now.”

This led to a swift backlash, with users bringing up allegations about Kravitz’s past behavior.

The situation caused chaos on social media, with defenders of Will Smith posting questionable tweets about Kravitz.

Kravitz later addressed the backlash, describing it as “scary,” and wished she “had handled that differently.” She added,

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. 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.

Additionally, to worsen the case, comments resurfaced where netizens claimed that Kravitz had seemingly put the moves on Smith’s son, Jaden Smith.

In 2013, Kravitz, who was 24 at the time, said,

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. He has so much personality and so much swag, he is so much cooler than I am. And he’s so handsome, I was always like, When you’re older…we’ll hang out. Nope, that’s inappropriate, you’re 14.


Her statements drew criticism for being inappropriate, especially considering Jaden’s young age at the time. Some even called her opinions and comments “predatory remarks.”

Despite Zoe Kravitz later regretting her decision to discuss both Jaden and the Oscars incident, the backlash and accusations continued to have a negative effect on her career.
