Will Smith Responded To A 10-year Ban From The Academy After The Oscar Slap

After being reprimanded for slapping actor Chris Rock in the middle of a gala evening in late March, the Academy of the Oscars determined on Friday that Will Smith would be barred from attending any event or function for up to 10 years.

It has been provided People at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences said in a statement that Will Smith can’t be a part of their events, whether they’re Oscar or not.

I appreciate and respect the academy’s decision.

Will Smith’s resignation was accepted by the Academy last week, but he was not stripped of his Best Actor Oscar for The Williams Method, which he won last month. In a short written statement, Will Smith said, “I accept and appreciate the Academy’s choice.”

The Academy’s board of directors meeting on Friday morning, which was attended by stars like Steven Spielberg and Whoopi Goldberg, was part of the actor’s disciplinary procedure following his smack at the Oscar ceremony in the midst of the evening.

“Under the shadow of Will Smith’s inexcusable and dangerous behavior on stage,” the event reads.

We did not react appropriately to the issue during our television broadcasts. “We apologize,” Academy President David Rubin said on Friday. Dawn Hudson is the executive director.
