Will Smith has been banned by the Oscar Academy for 10 Years for slapping Chris Rock! Is this a punishment for someone who not only achieved his first Oscar for his long and stellar career, but to someone who “quit” the academy, how does this hurt him, if he truly decides to not come back? Sure, he will forever be a great actor that achieved success and had a great career, but what does this mean for Will Smith, The Academy and Chris Rock? Is this justice for Chris Rock? Academy President David Ruben & CEO Dawn Hudson said in a statement, “for a period of 10 years from April 8, 2022, Mr. Smith shall not be permitted to attend any Academy events or programs, in person or virtually, including but not limited to the Academy Awards.” “This action we are taking today in response to Will Smith’s behavior is a step toward a larger goal of protecting the safety of our performers and guests and restoring trust in the Academy. We also hope this can begin a time of healing and restoration for all involved and impacted.” Will Smith responded by saying, “I accept and respect the Academy’s decision.” What do you think? Let us know?
