What looked like an innocent sketch with humorous notes by comedian Chris Rock and which was initially interpreted as such by those present and those who attended the ceremony, turned from an unpleasant incident, into an act of violence.
Will Smith, did not swallow the joke about his wife’s hair, which suffers from an autoimmune disease that causes them to fall out. The actor addressed the stage and did not resist the temptation to give a strong slap to Rock when the latter was presenting the winner for the documentary category.
The academy is investigating everything that happened to give the actor the punishment he deserved, while family members have informed “Entertainment Tonight” that they are thinking that Will should give up acting right now.
They think he should take a break, give himself some time after what happened and go to therapy. Smith’s decision is not yet known, while as for Jada, she feels calm and has already left behind what happened.
Some of the future projects of the famous actor Will Smith have been interrupted, after the unusual incident that happened between him and the comedian Chris Rock on the stage of ‘Oscars’.
Recently, he took his fans by surprise after he announced that he’s done with his acting career through an Instagram live session.
After slapping Chris, Will took to the stage to receive the Best Actor Award for his role as Richard Williams in the film, ‘King Richard’.
The actor, who made everyone talk and grabbed the most attention at the ‘Oscars 2022’, has a movie on Netflix and a movie about Sony, which have been put on hold according to ‘The Hollywood Reporter. THR said:
Netflix was in the process of finding a new director for “Fast and Loose” after David Leitch withdrew from the project before the Academy awards ceremony.
On April 1, we recall that Smith resigned from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Through a statement, he said:
The list of those I have hurt is long and includes Chris, his family, many of my dear friends and loved ones, all in attendance, and the global audience.
