Will Smith was ousted from the Oscars for 10 years for slapping Chris Rock

The actor will not be able to attend the Oscars for the next ten years as the American Film Academy announced the imposition of this punishment.

The nemesis after Will Smith’s impulsive act on stage at the Oscars and slapping Chris Rock for his comment on Jada Pinkett Smith’s alopecia, seems to have been slow to come.

The actor will not be able to attend the Oscars for the next ten years as the American Film Academy announced the imposition of this punishment, emphasizing that it prohibits Smith from attending any of its events, including of course the Oscar ceremony.

According to the announcement of the Academy: “The Board of Directors decided, for a period of 10 years from April 8, 2022, that Mr. Smith will not be allowed to attend events or programs of the Academy, in person or remotely, including, for example, Oscar Awards ».

“The 94th Oscars were meant to be a celebration of the many people in our community who did an incredible job last year. However, those moments were overshadowed by the unacceptable and harmful behavior we saw from Mr. Smith on stage “while he adds:” During the TV broadcast, we did not deal satisfactorily with the situation in the room. We’re sorry about that. “It was an opportunity to set a good example to our guests, the spectators and the family of the Academy around the world, and we failed, unprepared for the unprecedented.”

The decision was made at a board meeting in Los Angeles and was originally scheduled for April 18 but was made earlier due to Will Smith’s resignation from the Academy. Recall that Will Smith went on stage at the Oscars and attacked Chris Rock because of a joke made against his wife.

Specifically, Chris Rock made a joke about Jada Pinkett-Smith, that he could play in his sequel GI Jane, and Will Smith got on stage, giving him a slap that went viral immediately. Shortly afterwards, Will Smith returned to his seat and shouted at Rock not to grab his wife “in the back of his mouth.”

Will Smith then apologized for his act and is now being treated in a luxury detox clinic to “learn to manage his stress”, according to a report in the British newspaper The Sun. “Without a doubt, this is the biggest battle of his career. “It will be a luxury resort used by the richest and most famous people, and he will look for his soul and see how he will overcome it all.”

Will Smith hopes to save his career and reputation, which are currently hanging by a thread.
