Breaking: Will Smith RESIGNS from the Academy Over Chris Rock Oscars Slap Drama

Published: Friday 1st Apr 2022 by Sam

In breaking news, Will Smith has resigned from the Academy after the slap seen across the world at the Oscars.

As widely reported, the superstar – who took home the Best Actor honor – charged to the stage and slapped  Chris Rock on the live broadcast after the comedian made a joke about wife Jada Pinkett’s appearance. It’s of note that the actress has been vocal about her struggles with alopecia.

Now, amidst a looming investigation carried out by the Academy, Smith has decided to resign of his own volition.

Full story below…

“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.”

With that, what are…

    He spent his whole marriage trying to live up to a dead man!! Now he’ll spend the rest of his career trying to live down how easily he is manipulated by a woman who even has his kids saying he can’t measure up to a man that died more than 20 years ago!!

    They’re always trying to make an example out of a ñïggå, they were going to kick his black åss out anyway so I’m glad he chose to dip. Füçk them çräçkèrs and füçk the academy, in that order.

      They were NOT going to kick him out beforehand! With that logic, how do you explain all the black people in the academy? He acted like a nig’ga and now will be treated like a n’gga. What white person has HIT an academy member LIVE on TV. NONE. Drags us all down with your DISGUSTING behavior. The world now thinks black people can’t restrain themselves…

        Correct. Sorry my black folks, y’all don’t get to play the race card on this one.

    This is the whole problem with the world. Everyone wants to make a big deal out of Nothing. Be it Politically, sêxuality, race, cancel culture. So pathetic Celebs can’t just be unapologetic in their ways when things get heated. Will has a right to express himself by slapping Whatshisname.

      No he does not!

      @Diabetes….I want to slap your gross, ugly fat face…just to express myself. Or I could stick your face in dough and make gorilla cookies, but you’d probably eat all the dough and blame ghosts or fairies

    I want the Union to expel him so he can never work on a union project ever again. He would never be able to work on a Hollywood film…

    He’s a demonic Scientologist who tried to start a charter school for that cult that got shut down. TRUE FACTS. He worships a devil alien god. He should be shot in the face. Him and Tom Cruise in a suicde pact!

      Wow! Such a hateful comment! I guess anyone who doesn’t worship ur Idol should be executed. Religious Ppl are some of the most violent Ppl (according to History) yet everyone has smoke for Will Smith.

      At least he apologizes for his “atrocious” behavior.
