The Academy Bans Will Smith for Ten Years

Two weeks ago Will Smith stunned viewers after slapping comedian Chris Rock during the live broadcast of the Academy Awards after Chris made a joke about Jada Pinkett-Smith's bald head [click here if you missed that]. 

The Academy has handed down their ruling on Will's behavior...

Today, the Board of Governors convened a meeting to discuss how best to respond to Will Smith’s actions at the Oscars, in addition to accepting his resignation. The Board has decided, 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.

Smith will be allowed to keep his Oscar for Best Actor.

The Grammys I mean the oscars are boring. No one watches them anymore. Lowest ratings since it’s debut. Will will be fine!

Hind Sight is 20/20, I am sure that he wishes that things didn't happen, that night at the Oscars. Living with the Shame Of His Behavior that night is Worse than any Punishment that the Academy could have given him.

What's crazy is that for years he practically begged for an Oscar especially during his Ali era and then again when he made that concussion movie. Jada even pretended to boycott during Oscar's so white because of racism but she was just mad Will wasn't nominated for Concussion. Now the year everyone knew he would win he does this. People keep saying how he'll be fine and he will but he wanted the award and recognition more than you think. He divided his fan base and damaged his reputation for an inoffensive joke.

This was some embarrassing sh*t. I'm sure he will learn from this and maybe get out of that toxic marriage.

Its a bold face lie! Real slap, fake storyline.

Oh well! Such a little punishment. He was all fine and dandy until all of his validation team and fans died down. Now take your lil punishment and sit your lil tail down and think about what you did. Alone. Jada bout to leave that azz.

That old malignant narcissist still has flesh to pick from his carcass, first. She's not finished destroying him and his career. Perhaps this is a signal for ALL of those Smith weirdos to take a stay-cation...as in stay the hell off of social media, print media, stage, screen and airwaves.

If Jada made that statement about she wouldn't have done it, smh.... Will will be alright on the Oscar shyt.

WHO CARES he got his Oscar

Wow, this is so wrong, he committed a crime = assault!

That's why I don't think it was staged. Will gets banned for 10 years, and Chris Rock didn't benefit from it as he has not been using this incident as material for his current shows and pretty much refuses to talk about it.

^^^you better believe Chris gonna get Paid!
I think 10yrs is too harsh & black ppl with the outrage is overboard.

Embrace him, and give him the love he deserves.
SOMETHING IS TOTALLY OFF.
I am praying for him.
I don't want to hear a crazy Hollywood story that he did a Robin Williams or a Chef Anthony Bourdain OR Something shocking like this.

He should have made it worth his while and gave that Stepn' fetchit that two piece spicy. Lifetime boycott of the Oscars. Start the momentum.

Quick question, was Will Smith's acting in King Richard really good? Like I Am Legend, Pursuit of Happiness good? Or was the Oscar handed to him? Sadly, I don't like watching biographies about the living.

Jada Pinkett Smith recalls 'crying down the freaking aisle' at 'horrible' shotgun wedding to Will Smith and says she 'didn't wanna get married' in resurfaced Red Table Talk clip

Anthony Bourdain did not commit suicide. He was murdered after speaking out about the evils of Hollywood.

Who still watches the Oscars? I haven't watched that mess in 10 years, and don't plan to ever watch that tired ass bunch of circle jerk.

Chris Rock quipped onstage Friday night that he 'got my hearing back' after Will Smith slapped him onstage at the Oscars over a joke.
'Life is good,' he told the audience at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in California's Coachella Valley, according to the local newspaper the Desert Sun.
However he refused to address the incident further, saying: 'I'm OK, I have a whole show and I'm not talking about that until I get paid.'

100. ENTERTAINMENT LAWYER 04/08 **2**
This A+/A list mostly movie actor (Will Smith/Jada Pinkett Smith) is in the same position as another actor (John Travolta/Kelly Preston) who belonged to the same organization (Scientology). They have their secrets, but can't get out because their wives know the secrets and are devoted to the organization. The latter actor had his wife die and was able to break free. Our other actor will be in the same miserable situation for decades. Will Smith/Jada Pinkett Smith/John Travolta/Kelly Preston/Scientology
