On Friday, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences announced Will Smith's fate for slapping comedian Chris Rock during the Oscars in March.
The verdict is: Smith is banned from the Awards for the next ten years.
"The Board has decided, for a period of 10 years from April 8, 2022, Mr. Smith shall not be permitted to attend any Academy events or programs, in person or virtually, including but not limited to the Academy Awards," said Academy President David Rubin and CEO Dawn Hudson.
After the announcement, many people began blasting the Academy for banning Smith but still allowing child rapists and pedophiles to attend.
English broadcaster and television personality Piers Morgan tweeted, "Will Smith banned by the Hollywood Academy, 12 days after he slapped Chris Rock. It took the same Academy 40 years to ban Roman Polanski after he was convicted of raping a child."

"Will Smith being banned from the Oscars for 10 years is astounding. They really kept giving awards to known sexual abusers and pedophiles, but a slap is really where they’re going to start banning people," wrote user Natalie Dallas.

So....pedos, sexual assaulters, and actors with allegations....they can stay. But Will Smith does a slap and he's banned for 10 years? Sure.....
I don't condone violence and I think that Will shouldn't have slapped Chris Rock, but this is ridiculous. https://t.co/5l6UUNItv4

will smith being banned from the Oscars for 10 YEARS for slapping a man who disrespected his wife is crazy when in the same breath they’ll allow rapists, child predators, racists, and abusers in just fine.
The Academy is a sick joke and they have the racism to show for it.
