Will Smith Banned From the Oscars for 10 Years


At this year’s Oscars, history was made when Will Smith slapped Chris Rock in the face when Chris made a joke about Will’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith. This hit the internet immediately and has gotten much attention, including the Academy’s board of governors. They made a statement saying how Will Smith’s actions were unacceptable and harmful, and also apologized for how the situation was handled. The academy then said that Smith will be banned from attending the Oscars or any other academy events for a decade. Will Smith accepts the decision and resigned from the academy.
