First time Oscar producer Will Packer took to social media to comment on his entry into doing the televised award show. Without directly mentioning the Will Smith/Chris Rock fiasco, he did admit that it “was a very painful moment for me.”

With Sunday’s telecast, movie and television producer Will Packer made history when he led the first all-Black production team in Oscars history. Sadly, that will just be a footnote as everyone continues to talk about Smith slapping Rock in the face on stage at the Academy Awards presentation.

Packer did acknowledge on his Twitter account the day after the airing, that he did assure us that the show wouldn’t be boring. And it wasn’t.

After the producer sent out that tweet, a Twitter user, Jonathan Jewel tried to admonish him for sending that out and making sure the “assault” witnessed was mentioned in his response.

Which led Packer to directly respond to the user and express how painful the moment was for him.

Despite the attention being given to what transpired at the Academy Awards presentation, Packer was still proud of the achievement that was accomplished with a Black producer taking over the realm.
