Will Smith Banned for 10 Years From Oscars and Academy Events

Nearly two weeks after "The Slap," actor Will Smith is officially facing consequences for striking Chris Rock on the Oscars stage. After the Board of Governors for the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences met Friday morning to discuss the situation, the Academy released an official statement announcing that Smith is receiving a 10-year ban from Academy events. This also comes after the Board recently accepted Smith’s resignation from the Academy, a move which left sanctions as one of the few remaining disciplinary actions.

It’s a resolution of sorts to an incident that made instant international news and has since dominated entertainment conversation. It all kicked off after Rock made a joke on stage about Jada Pinkett Smith’s hair while presenting an award. She’s publicly spoken about her struggle with alopecia and upon hearing the joke, Will stormed on stage and slapped Rock. Afterward, he yelled at Rock from his seat, outraged at the remarks about his wife. The backlash from voices around the industry was immediate with some even calling for Smith to be stripped of his Oscar, but there’s no precedent nor legal authority for the Academy to take such actions. Since the incident, Smith has also issued multiple apologies to Rock and to the Academy.
