Will Smith Banned from Oscars 10 Years

Will Smith has been banned from the Oscars for ten years after the American actor slapped comedian Chris Rock on stage at the awards show in late March.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences announced the 10-year ban in a statement released on Friday

“I accept and respect the Academy’s decision,” Smith stated to CNN.

Even with the ban in place, Smith can still be nominated for and even win an Oscar in the future, but he cannot attend the event.

Smith hit Rock in the face on stage at the Oscars on Sunday evening after the comic made a joke about the actor’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith.

Smith walked up on stage and appeared to strike Rock before returning to his seat and shouting: “Keep my wife’s name out of your…mouth.”
