Will Smith’s shocking on-stage smack of Chris Rock at the 2022 Academy Awards earlier this month has been making headlines all over the internet this week.
Shock ensued after the comedian made a tasteless joke about the Fresh Prince actor’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith.
Saying, “Jada, I adore you.,” he compared her buzz cut to that of Jordan O’Neill in the 1977 film G.I. Jane. Excited about G.I. Jane 2!
Last year, the actress disclosed that she had shaved her head because of her experience with the hair-loss disorder alopecia. The actor is now rumoured to have entered a rehabilitation centre after being banned from the Oscars for a decade.
A Source Said that Will Smith Is at A “high-End Retreat”
After his viral altercation at the Oscars, reports say that Will Smith has entered a high-end rehabilitation centre. The impact of the criticism has hit him hard, according to Hollywood sources, therefore he has been admitted to a “high-end retreat,” as reported by The Sun.
He’s going to counselling for stress management…” A source revealed, “This is, without a doubt, the fight of his career.” He will be spending time introspecting and planning his next steps in a luxurious resort frequented by the rich and famous.
“He really wants the subject to move on so he can come back and repair his reputation and career,” they stated. The actor, however, has not commented on nor confirmed the rumours.
The Oscars Have Banned Will Smith
The Academy Awards announced this week that Will Smith has been prohibited from attending the ceremony for the next decade. As stated by the Academy Awards:
“The Board has resolved that beginning on April 8, 2022, Mr Smith will not be authorised to participate in any Academy events or activities, either in person or remotely, including but not limited to the Academy Awards.”
They claimed that the Oscars were “overshadowed by the reprehensible and damaging behaviour we saw Mr Smith demonstrate on stage,” which is a rather strong condemnation of Will Smith’s actions.
They said, “This action we are taking today in reaction to Will Smith’s actions is a step toward a wider goal of ensuring the safety of our artists and guests and rebuilding trust in the Academy.”
Will Smith, Departs from Academic Career
The Fresh Prince star decided earlier this week to leave the Academy. Chris, his family, many of my personal friends and loved ones, everyone in the room, and global audiences at home are just some of the people he stated he had injured.
Will went on: “I shattered the faith of the Academy. By not attending the party, I prevented the other nominees and winners from enjoying the spotlight. Sadness has filled my entire being.
In order to “throw the spotlight back on those who deserve praise for their achievements,” he announced his resignation from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts.
When he was done, he said, “Change takes time, and I am dedicated to doing the work to guarantee that I never again allow violence to overpower reason.”
