Caitlyn also weighed in on the Will Smith-Chris Rock slapping scandal which dominated the Oscars.
‘Honestly, I saw from a distance, I didn’t see what was going on… But it was kind of a television moment… But I don’t know…’ Caitlyn, who said she knew Will and his wife Jada Pinkett Smith ‘well’, said.

‘I’ve always liked Will, he’s been a really good friend for many years,’ Caitlyn added.
While Will’s slapping incident has been dominating headlines these last few days, Kim’s relationship with her ex Kanye West has been garnering plenty of attention as well.
The couple’s drama has been playing out publicly with Kanye airing his grievances with Kim and her new boyfriend on social media.
PEOPLE reports Kim ‘has moved on’ from the many Kanye’s headline-grabbing incidents.

A source close to the reality star told the site that Kim is ‘very much over the public drama’ with the 44-year-old rapper but does keep in communication with him over their four kids – North, eight, Saint, six, Chicago, four, and Psalm, two – whom they co-parent.
The source said: ‘She makes sure that he can see the kids whenever he wants to,’ before adding that Kim ‘has moved on and is very happy.’
Relations between the former couple were strained after the SKIMs founder was romantically linked to the comedian Pete following her guest host stint of Saturday Night Live, which Kanye reacted by harassing the 28-year-old comic, which led him to being banned on Instagram for 24 hours.
Kim was reported to have found the decision from the social media app’s parent company to be ‘fair’.
A source told People: ‘Kim found the suspension to be fair, but her reaction wasn’t very dramatic. She didn’t make a big deal out of it and joked that she needed a break for a day. All of Kanye’s posts have been exhausting for her though.’
Despite the drama, Kim – who was declared legally single this month – has spoken out before about keeping it civil for the kids and being her ‘co-parent’s biggest cheerleader’.
Last month, she told Vogue: ‘You could be so hurt or angry at your ex, but I think in front of the kids, it always has to be ‘Your dad’s the best’.
‘Make sure you are your co-parent’s biggest cheerleader, no matter what you’re personally going through.’
