Will Smith Resigns From The Academy


Will Smith submits his resignation to The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences less than a week after winning the Academy Award for Best Actor for his role in King Richard, and slapping Chris Rock during the live broadcast...

Will writes, 
I have directly responded to the Academy’s disciplinary hearing notice, and I will fully accept any and all consequences for my conduct. My actions at the 94th Academy Awards presentation were shocking, painful, and inexcusable. 
The list of those I have hurt is long and includes Chris, his family, many of my dear friends and loved ones, all those in attendance, and global audiences at home. I betrayed the trust of the Academy. I deprived other nominees and winners of their opportunity to celebrate and be celebrated for their extraordinary work. I am heartbroken. I want to put the focus back on those who deserve attention for their achievements and allow the Academy to get back to the incredible work it does to support creativity and artistry in film. So, I am resigning from membership in the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, and will accept any further consequences the Board deems appropriate. 
Change takes time and I am committed to doing the work to ensure that I never again allow violence to overtake reason.
Smith's resignation means he no longer has an Oscar vote, he can't participate in any Academy events and he will not present The Best Actress award next year, as is customary for the previous year's Best Actor winner.

The Academy’s board will again meet on April 15 to determine additional consequences as part of the formal review process.

Will Smith stole the spotlight from:

Kanye West, Clarence Thomas, Vlad Putin, Volodymyr Zelenskyy, Kamala Harris, Donald Trump, The Ukraine War, The Turpin children and The Academy Awards.

If only Chris rock would resign as a comedian. Seriously, his last couple of stand-up were not funny and why is a woman with a bald head in 2022 a big deal anyway? We've had nearly 50 of the gorgeous Grace Jones and probably thousands of alopecia sufferers for this to escalate like it has. Over 30 years of hard work and now this. Had I been in Will's position, I would've gotten my family and anybody else who cares to boo Chris off the stage. Laying down hands over words without consequences only works for yt folks.

Not until Jada has a "sit down" at the "Red Table".

At least he is taking accountability unlike some of you folks. Everyone needs forgiveness.

This week has truly been Will overload. That scientology got him fugged up. Jada is weird. Those kids are weird. Their "marriage" is weird. It's just all too much.

Do stars, athletes, politicians, musicians and even reality stars bear more responsibility to the average person, to live a life that is respectable.
Many people look up to and even emulate celebrity behaviors and lifestyles. Once the veneers fall away, the public is left with a “raw” look into “a lie lived”.
No one's life is better and comfortable. We all face problems in our daily life. So, it is about person and his perception and understanding about life. It is common to take challenges and face them to make our life more comfortable and better.

He should be allowed to keep the Oscar, as a reminder, of how he not only damaged his career, but also Chris', because that slap will always follow him. Hope Chris sues!

I'm sure Whoopie gave him a heads up. He already knew this was coming, so he did it first.
This goes to show you how he did Janet H. was vengeful. He's has a nasty streak behind that Hollyweird smile. Now it will follow him forever. His ego got the best of him.
The ppl that have been giving his production company work is talking about pulling all projects from him. Including Red Table Talk.

Classy move. Hopefully this fiasco will GO AWAY! Taking up too much space already

Will Smith successfully distracted the media at a time when the only news was Biden demanding Putin be removed from office, coincidence? Probably. Even NPR chose to headline Will Smith the next day. The media, Hollywood is sold. At least there's Twitter.

Also, Will could run butt naked sweating in the streets of downtown NYC apologizing. I doesnt change a doubt in my mind, this staged scene has a deeper meaning.

If only Jada took the joke in good faith...if only Jada respected the fact that she was at The 94th Academy Awards because of Will, not her...if only Jada pulled Will back...if only Jada didn't laugh after the slap. To date, Jada has not spoken up but has left Will 100% to take the fall. Yes, Will must take full responsibility for his actions but let's not be forgetful of his wife's role. If only Jada laughed it off, like Will did...BUT NO, she pressed her husband's sensitive buttons and destroyed his time to shine. Strange and crazy how a man's professional award can be diminished into a demonic debacle about a black woman's hair!

Jada cannot stand the fact that she choose this goofy over a man she envisioned in her life forever. She never let this MF forget that if Pac was here there would be no them. I hope this final nail in Will's Career Coffin will cause him to realize he really needs to divorce her his sanity depends on it.

THIS ENTIRE MESS
IS SHOCK8NG
and it will be crazier
When we find out it was STUNT that went too far

TRACI404 said...

Based on new camera angles..showing what happened.
I think it was a stunt, that was supposed to be funny...but it went too far.
Planned by both of them
Why would WILL SMITH blow up his career in front of the world?

You guys fell for the okie doke? Smh. Guess who sponsored the Oscars? Big Pharma. Guess whose alopecia medicine is coming out? The same Big Pharma company who sponsored the Oscars. You really think Will got mad about a simple GI Jane joke? On the happiest night of his life he'd ruin it?

I believe Chris, Will, and Jada got a Big Pharma check that's so huge they don't care what anyone thinks and can retire if they want to. Lol. Mark my word, I bet Jada becomes a spokeswoman for the new alopecia drug when it comes out. I looked at her head and I don't see a trace of alopecia,just a low cut. I don't see any scaring and she has a head full of hair follicles with absolutely no trace of traction or scaring alopecia. I think shes lying. I bet she's never even had an atibodies test. Even with her head shaved I see all of her follicles. Traction alopecia is mainly from weaves and bad hairstyling but she claims to have alopecia scaring which is the body attacking itself. Chile, no patching or shine to be found on her scalp and she hasn't even lost her eyebrows. If she had alopecia scaring she wouldn't have a head full of hair follicles. Go look at her head and then look at women with traction or scaring alopecia. Even before Jada shaved her head, her braids didn't have gaps like women with thinning do. I think she putting on for endorsements or she's seeking attention.

I smell 3 Hollywood rats. Also, Chris worked with a woman in his movie with alopecia and so he knows the pain those jokes cause. That slap wasn't even a real angry man slap, it was a stage slap. Also, why would Will turn his back after slapping another man? How do you go from hitting a dude to crying? I think they got paid and are ready to roll out. Why do you think Chris didn't respond and kept his hands behind his back? That's not even a natural reaction. That mess was a stunt. The Black Oscar producer promised excitement and we got it. 2 thirty yr Hollywood actors just fooled the world. Either they did that to save the Oscars or they got paid by big pharma who funded the Oscars. It will all come out in tne wash. Don't believe everything you see, Hollywood is an illusion.

The stunt was foolin the world as if he was really pleasing his wife. That outburst didn't prove anything except that he doesn't deserve the Academy's award. Now give it back!

Anonymous said...

I could them getting paid to push a drug. In fact we heard this from a blogger.Now if that is the case the wrong person to push. Nobody wants to see Jada or Will pushing a thing. In fact this shit went so wrong alot of mf's dont believe she even has Alopecia and where are the Alopecia people and their specialist zooming in on her scalp. Shit on pause.

It's more important things going on in the world, at the end of the day Will is still going to be rich, Chris Rock is a grown man who let another man slap him like a bitch and didn't do anything about it,and he is not going to sue because of us black people will label him a snitch and he will be blackballed in the community, we don't support each other as a race, that's why we are not respected by other races

Anonymous said...

I don't think it was a stunt based on how Jada been gas lighting this man who is on a quest to love this bitch til the end. Even if it at the expense of all he put on the line then lost so she could think - he compares to Tupac. Someone tell that idiot Chemistry is a feeling you cant research, pay for or manufacture it. Will. Your done and rightfully so been sick of his self
righteous ass. He have figured out the formula to every thing but how to make his wife respect him.

Some of these conspiracy theories are off the mental chain. I'm blessed not to know ppl that think like they belong in nut ward.

@10:54 Can't help but to notice you have your dumb @$$ on a "gossip" blog. Do you know what a gossip blog is? It's all conjecture and conspiracy. Just because some of us don't accept the narrative handed to us by Hollywierd doesn't make us irrational, it means we are critical thinkers. Only a dufus like yourself believes everything you are presented without question. I bet you have already gotten your 4th booster. Lol Because you don't have the ability to think critically, you are mad at us who can. Just remember YOU looked up a gossip blog where there is gossip, and so you are no better than anyone else here. You picked the wrong place to sit on a high horse fellow gossip monger.

@10:54, You would know because your mental diagnosis is narcissistic personality coupled with delusions of grandeur. You straight came on a gossip blog, where people gossip, and attempted to set yourself above others when you are a gossip or you wouldn't be here. Your pills and jello are waiting for you on hall 4.

@8:02, You make an interesting point because Dr. Lam said the kind of Alopecia she claims she has usually shows up in early childhood even though it's not impossible to get it later. Some women with alopecia areata said the scar she has isn't alopecia related because alopecia scars come in shiny circles, not a straight line. The doc said that too in a more polite way. He also said they are calling her hair loss the wrong thing but I don't know what that means. Maybe it's just typical hair loss? I have severe hair loss but I don't have alopecia. You can see my scalp even though I have really long hair.

I think it's obvious that Will Smith needed to do a humiliation ritual but I'm not sure who it's for. Did Will Smith's programming fail or was he programmed to do that and why? Something is really really of with this situation. Why would a man ruin his moment so catastrophically? Who financially benefits from Will Smith's humiliation sacrifice? The illuminati?! The kids have been sacrificed as well because all they do is promote Satan.

Two months ago, double board certified plastic surgeon and hair restoration doctor, Gary Linkov, who actually has Alopecia Areata himself, did an entire video on YT dispelling Jada's hair loss claims. He said that the linear scar she trying yo say is Alopecia is more akin to a cosmetic brow lift, not Alopecia
scaring. Check out his video because its so informative about the types of hair loss. He does the hair transplants and he has the condition himself. It's really an informative video and helped me understand my own scalp. Whst she most likely experienced is just common age related thinning and shedding.

^^^Exactly - natural aging.

I had a bout of alopecia after giving birth to my daughter. My beautician is the one that discover it. I was seen by a dermatologist and received some injections in my scalp. Hair grew back, I was 24 or so. Fast forward to my late thirties my hair was shedding and I have very thick hair. It started thinning in the back , so I chose to cut the perm out and have been wearing an Afro ever since. Comes to find out I was on my way to menopause. By 43 my periods had totally stopped. At 51, I am still wearing an Afro, and my eyebrows grow slowly until I started taking vitamin B12.

It should be rather obvious that hair & scalp abuse can cause hair & scalp damage and result in hair loss.

Hit dawgs will holla. I never mentioned whose comments sounded like you were hypnotized by your solar panels. You two or one of you are the same who wrote two comments back-to-back. You must be the nuts with the most outrages conspiracy comments, that make no sense whatsoever. No facts to back up anything you say. Just flapping those babel face lips of yours to make yourself sound profound (NUTS).
You have found a home here where no one knows you or likes you in real life, so you come to Snitch and throw out conspiracy lies. You make up sht in your twisted brain and called it fact. Eat Dawg food and lick your anus.

@ 11:03, I had a run-in with this same commenter (@ 11:25 & 11:32) on another thread. Yes this commenter felt that they "wrote and enforced the rules" for this blog. Attacked me for my comments.

@ 11:25 & 11:32, if you remember, I dragged you all night long on the Wendy Williams thread. If you want round two, come for me.

Jada been putting needles in her face she dont know wtf she is having injected in her scalp on top of aging and other life stresses of tormenting her living family to keep a ghost alive. Who would not lose their hair. She is lucky she has the most even fade and eyebrows for a woman in her condition. She is giving me Yolanda Hadid vibes and just like that, that bitch dont suffer from that shit no more. No relapses nothing. Could be something else fucking with them.

Seriously this was the most publicity the Oscars has received in years.

Will is now at a crossroad, he must make tough decisions in order to regain his throne. I hope he decides to finally let go of his marriage regardless of the money split. He should do this without looking back. He has options. His first wife would have him back in a NY minute.
