Will Smith

Nearly two weeks after Will Smith slapped the hell out of Chris Rock for not keeping his wife's name out of his mouth, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has finally decided how it will punish the actor for his unprecedented actions.

Will Smith made a grave mistake when he physically attacked Chris Rock at the 2022 Oscars, and his "moment in the sun" may be coming to a premature & unfortunate close. But Whoopi Goldberg thinks everything will be okay — just give it time.

"It is kind of crazy to think that this one incident could wipe away so many decades of goodwill. But it was so public, it was so outside of the box. One agent we talked to called it a 'stunning act of narcissism'. The movie star brand for Will Smith is badly tarnished." - The Wrap's Editor-in-Chief Sharon Waxman to the BBC

It's beginning to look like what was supposed to be the biggest night of Will Smith's entire career might be the worst night of his life since becoming an actor. 

"Put on the full armor of God, so that you can make your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this world’s darkness, and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms." - Ephesians 6:11-12

Will Smith wants to put "the slap" behind him and move on with his life based on his decision, and we don't blame him.

"We're not leaving. We're not f**king leaving! The show goes on! This is our home! They're gonna need a f**king wrecking ball to take us out of here! They're gonna have to send in the National Guard and f**king SWAT teams..." Leonardo DiCaprio as Jordan Belfort in "The Wolf of Wall Street"

Everyone and their momma have decided to share their opinions on Will Smith slapping Chris Rock during The Oscars, subsequently leading to them having their receipts pulled on Twitter. Outside of Will Smith, and his wife Jada Pinkett, it has been radio silence from the person who got his chin checked until now, well, sort of. 

Bel-Air's first season is about to wrap with the upcoming season finale, and outside of it being a hit, one thing is obvious, the decision to cast Jabari Banks as Will was a perfect one.
