Will Smith Banned From Oscars

A decision has been made! Will Smith has been banned from the Oscars for the next ten years, TVGrapevine has learned. The news comes just a few days after the Men in Black alum resigned from the Academy.

As previously reported, the King Richard star slapped Chris Rock after the comedian made a joke about Jada Pinkett Smith during the Oscars telecast earlier this month.

The following statement has been released regarding the decision:

“This action we are taking today in response to Will Smith’s behavior is a step toward a larger goal of protecting the safety of our performers and guests, and restoring trust in the Academy,” the Academy’s president David Rubin and CEO Dawn Hudson said in a statement. “We also hope this can begin a time of healing and restoration for all involved and impacted.”

More news will be released as it becomes available.
