Chris donned Adidas track bottoms with a green long-sleeved top, adding sneakers, sunglasses and a baseball cap.

The outlet reported that the funnyman had ‘moved on’ from the incident and ‘doesn’t need to talk.’

‘This is clearly something that bothers Will more than Chris. Will needs to deal with his issues. Chris is fine,’ the insider added.

‘The fact that he is making jokes about it already is a good thing. That means he is assessing it. But the stress of the slap and the aftermath has not taken over his life. Quite the opposite,’ the source said.

Will, 53, shared his apology video on Friday to his Instagram account.

He stated he had made aware of his fans reaction to the incident at the Oscars ceremony.

The actor said: ‘Over the last few months, I’ve been doing a lot of thinking and personal work… you asked a lot of fair questions that I wanted to take some time to answer.’

Will then went on to issue a personal apology to Chris.

‘Chris, I apologize to you. My behavior was unacceptable and I’m here whenever you are ready to talk,’ Will said.

Will said he had ‘fogged out’ when he attacked the comedian, and that his recollection of the entire incident was ‘fuzzy.’

He also expressed he was personally affected by the public’s reaction to his past actions.

Adding: ‘Disappointing people is my central trauma. I hate when I let people down, so it hurts.’

‘If you hang on I promise we’ll be able to be friends again,’ he said.

Will previously apologized to Chris via a message he shared on Instagram account in March.

‘I’ve reached out to Chris and the message that came back is that he’s not ready to talk, and when he is he will reach out. So I will say to you, Chris, I apologize to you. My behavior was unacceptable, and I’m here whenever you’re ready to talk.’

He wrote: ‘I was out of line and I was wrong. I am embarrassed and my actions were not indicative of the man I want to be.’ 

Hours after Will’s groveling apology video, Chris had a show and joked about his famous interaction with Will.

‘Everyone is trying to be a f*****g victim. If everybody claims to be a victim, then nobody will hear the real victims,’ Chris said at his show, via CNN.

He then expressed that going through the experience of ‘getting smacked by Suge Smith’ was something that he had to work through quickly.

He said that after getting slapped he ‘went to work the next day. I got kids.’

Adding: ‘Anyone who says words hurt has never been punched in the face.’ 

Another People report claimed that Will is doing ‘a lot of thinking and personal work,’ with the actor feeling ‘deeply remorseful’ for his actions.

‘From a person who has never displayed anything like [the slap], he’s very aware that isn’t someone he will ever be again. He’s deeply remorseful, he is still doing a lot of work and he’s also human and made a mistake. He’s going to move forward with the same positivity that he always had.’
