According to the organization’s board president, David Rubin, and executive director, Dawn Hudson, in a note, during those ten years Smith “will not be allowed to attend any Academy event or program, in person or virtually.” including but not limited to the Academy Awards.”
In a statement, the AP agency reports, the Academy called Smith’s actions “unacceptable and harmful.”
Will Smith anticipated that he will abide by the sanction
The actor said he would accept any sanction imposed on him. “I accept and respect the decision of the Academy”advanced in a statement.
The entity also apologized for its handling of the situation by allowing Smith to remain at the ceremony and receive his best actor award after punching Rock in anger over a joke the comedian had made about his wife.
“During our broadcast, we did not adequately address the situation in the room. For this we are sorry” the academy said. “This was an opportunity for us to set an example for our guests, the public and our Academy family around the world, and we let them down by not being prepared for something unprecedented,” she added.
He won’t lose his Oscar
In any case, they will not take away the Oscar for best actor won for his performance in “King Richard”.
Two days before the sanction, the “Men in Black” actor had admitted to a rehabilitation clinic to get over what happened.
According to a British medium, it would be a luxury rehabilitation clinic, “for the rich and famous” and the actor’s purpose is to “manage everything that is happening in his life”, that is, everything that happened in just under ten days, after taking the stage at the Dolby Theater and slapping Chris Rock.
The Sun would have contacted “a source close to the actor”, who would have expressed the following: “Will Smith is very affected by what happened. He is going to receive help in this rehabilitation clinic to deal with the stress and anxiety generated by the Oscars 2022”.
After all, the Hollywood star has not only suffered a moment of harsh media impact. His reputation and his work are also suffering. This could have a very serious impact on the American film industry. We will see how he ends up dealing with emotional and psychological management, key for a job like the one he does.
Also, on April 1, Smith had resigned his membership in the organizationwith which it no longer had the option of expelling or suspending him at the meeting scheduled for April 18, which was brought forward to this Friday.
