Tatyana Ali is standing up for Will Smith in a new Twitter post.
She played Ashley Banks on the NBC sitcom “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” from 1990 to 1996.
She began her post by saying, “I love #WillSmith very much.”
However, she admitted that Chris Rock “didn’t deserve to be hit. Period.”
“My heart aches for what has happened,” she continued.
“I don’t know what caused that chaos & confusion, but I do know that Will has a big heart,” she added.
She said she’s “seen him many times try his best to do what is right.”
She concluded her message, saying, “I believe in him.”
Fans were divided as to whether or not Will Smith should be forgiven.
