'The Academy condemns the actions of Mr. Smith at last night's show': Will Smith faces losing his Oscar for assaulting Chris Rock during live broadcast as Academy launches formal review


The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has launched a formal review into Will Smith's slap of Chris Rock at the Oscars and says it 'condemns the actions of Mr. Smith at last night's show.'

The organization released the statement Monday afternoon, according to Variety, after facing backlash over not naming Smith when initially addressing the incident.

'The Academy condemns the actions of Mr. Smith at last night's show,' a spokesperson for the organization said. 'We have officially started a formal review around the incident and will explore further action and consequences in accordance with our Bylaws, Standards of Conduct and California law.'

Smith could face some type of disciplinary action or sanction, but it's unlikely he would be made to hand over his award, Variety reported.

The organization held emergency talks over Zoom about possibly stripping Smith of his Best Actor gong for smacking Chris Rock across the face for cracking a joke about his wife Jada Pinkett-Smith, it was revealed on Monday, as Hollywood's hypocritical woke elite still scrambled to party with him through the night.

Oscar bosses were said to be split over whether to take the actor's trophy for his role in 'King Richard' because the assault breaks a new code of conduct drawn up by The Academy in the wake of #MeToo movement and the appalling crimes of Harvey Weinstein.

Members, including Smith himself, have agreed to behave in a way that never violates 'the integrity of the Academy by their actions' or face suspension or expulsion. Critics are clear that the actor's live TV attack meets that definition - but his supporters insist he 'should be able to hold on to it'.

A source told The Sun: 'Once the ceremony was over they called in key members to hold an emergency meeting about what action they should take.

'There have been calls to have Will stripped of his Best Actor gong. They cannot be seen to be condoning violence in any way and there are some people in the Academy who believe they should remove the award from him to make a point. Others, however, believe he should be allowed to hold on to it'.

Chris Rock, who has not been seen since the attack, has been offered a 'package of after care' including a counsellor if he needs one, the insider said. The comedian has told the Los Angeles Police Department that he does not want to press charges.

All I see that happened there was purely a Staged Coded Satanic ritual.

First of all Mr. Smith moved up there with the hidden hand Sign/symbol ( If you know u know). And when u see the stage of the Oscars, it's all decorated with the illuminanti symbols.

Don't be Deceived by them. It's all a distraction. A Distraction to Distract the world from what is Needful and to engage the world Inhabitants in non essentials.

Of course it was real.

Everytime I remember the incident and see the picture, I cringe. Will was provoked, and rightly so, but he should have used words to slay Chris, not violence. Words are capable of causing more damage than violence ever can because they can break the spirit.

He crossed a line and he deserves to have his award stripped. Disgraceful behaviour.

Let him lose it. Black man and misbehaviour everywhere. It's in the DNA. Some migrated to the USA over 300 years ago yet, that black man's character has never eluded them...DNA is so strong my people. If you go to the USA, in spite of their exposure and the fact that many of them have never been to Africa in their entire life since their great-great grannies migrated as a result of slavery to the USA, they still behave like Africans.

No white man wouid behave like will Smith had done. He'd just walk away to avoid embarrassment. Their name means a lot to them so, they guide it jealously. I wish Smith could lose the Oscar to serve as a deterrent to others.

Will Smith, once a happy and energetic actor that fits different category of movies like romance, action and comedy

It is funny seeing how such a thespian legend has been broken to a thousand pieces due to marriage

He has shown that he is a loyal man who married a bad manipulative woman who

Jada Pinketh always jump at the opportunity to disgrace Will Smith at any given opportunity, yet the young man still have to fight publicly for her

I pray they don't strip him if his award because it will be a double joepardy considering what the young man have suffered for the past few years to stay in marriage

The young man has been giving us memes back to back

I heard several of his friends slept with his wife, he didn't hit them. He had to hit someone over a mere joke.

Seriously, you need psychological evaluation. You prove daily with your comments that you're mentally unstable. Sorry to say, you need to be confined in an asylum before this your condition worsens.

If he felt disrespected by Rock words, why didn’t he slap his wife for disrespecting herself for having an “entanglement” with August. Will Smith should be awarded “The SIMPson’s” award for biggest SIMP. His wife is so manipulative.

If this is done, I support it 100%. Black men should learn to comport themselves in public. Will Smith is a utter disgrace for becoming less of a man over his unadorable wife
