New Oscar winner Will Smith slapped Chris Rock to protect his wife Jada Pinkett Smith at the Oscars, sparking heated discussions around the world, and reactions from the outside world were polarized! After the disciplinary committee held by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) to discuss, Will Smith’s punishment has also been released!
Will Smith’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, is currently bald due to alopecia, the host Chris Rock joked at the awards ceremony, mocking her to go to the “G.I. Jane”, so Will Smith rushed on stage and angrily slapped him, although he later apologized and resigned from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences membership, but still can not calm the crowd.
According to US media reports, David Rubin, president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS), and Dawn Hudson, chief executive of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS), issued a statement that although Will Smith can retain the best actor award, he will not be present or via video for 10 years from April 8. Attend any Academy event, including the Oscars, but still be able to star or produce.
The statement stated that the Oscar ceremony was held to celebrate the hard work of the film and art practitioners in the past year, but it was covered up by Will Smith’s personal “unacceptable harmful behavior”. Will Smith expressed his willingness to accept this punishment and respected the Academy’s decision.
