The fallout from the Oscar slap
The repercussions for Will Smith have been immense so far. The Best Actor winner announced his resignation from the Academy Awards on Friday.
The actor said his actions eclipsed Hollywood’s glam night of the year and were “shocking, painful and inexcusable”.
“The list of those I have hurt is long and includes Chris, his family, many of my dear friends and loved ones, all in attendance and a global audience at home,” Smith said in a statement.
“I betrayed the trust of the Academy. I deprived the other nominees and winners of their opportunity to celebrate and be celebrated for their extraordinary work. My heart is broken.”
Will Smith’s behavior ‘deeply shocking’
The Oscars released a scathing statement Thursday that Smith’s behavior was a “deeply shocking and traumatic event to witness in person and on television.”
A disciplinary procedure has been opened against the actor who is exposed to all other sanctions authorized by the rules of procedure and the sanctions of the Academy.
Smith and the Academy have publicly apologized to Rock, who says he is still processing the events of March 27.
