ABC Made Attempt to Censor the Will Smith Oscars Slap

It was the slap heard around the world as viewers watched wondering if superstar actor Will Smith slapped comedian Chris Rock across the face as part of a bizarre comedic or acting bit; one that nobody could understand.

Smith has issued a public apology which took well over 24 hours to release, and the Oscars officially opened a “review” on the matter, all indicating the slap was in fact Smith’s inability to control his anger.

Not only did we learn the slap was real, but also that ABC did its very best to censor the shocking event in real time. “Due to a tape delay that dropped nearly 20 seconds of audio from the broadcast, none could hear a stunned Rock tell the equally stunned audience, ‘Will Smith just smacked the s— out of me!’

Smith’s two f-bombs that immediately followed also were unheard. Tape delays help producers to prevent fiascos by giving them time to silence, bleep or blur content in live broadcasts and “content that could draw a Federal Communications Commission (FCC) fine on domestic broadcasts.”

But that did not stop international audiences from seeing and hearing the whole event, and plastering it all over the internet.  David Mack was watching the awards show in Australia when he noticed his American friends were complaining on social medial. “I realized I had seen and heard what they had not” said Mack who was able to see the unedited version.

Mack rewound and recorded the missing clip to post to social media, where it quickly went viral. Jim Hatcher, chief technology officer at Human Circuit, an engineering firm that designs broadcast systems explained, “you’ve got commercial [stations] broadcasting under a certain set of rules and social media using another set, and you can see how easily you can get to the cut content by going on social media.”

“How a traditional broadcast is going to compete with that, I don’t know. And I don’t know how the FCC will address that either” said Mack. One radio producer for the BBC said, “Americans can be a bit more puritanical and outraged by these things.” The producer spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak officially on broadcast standards, reports the Stamford Advocate.

    Will Smith actually laughed at what Chris Rock said(jokingly) as we did NOT KNOW Jada had any health issues as hairdo’s are wild these days. First off, when Will looked at that face on Jada he then knew HE was in trouble for laughing…and approached the stage to ‘defend his wife, he did NOT originally.’ He is taking his “macho roles a bit TOO SERIOUS”(and has slapped a reporter before as we’ve all seen) Notice that Will after the ‘fake apology before the cameras, was also on video later Dancing and Laughing it up, so I feel HIS apology to the academy to ‘protect his career’…DID NOT INCLUDE AN APOLOGY TO CHRIS ROCK-WHO IS A COMMEDIENE AND IT WAS A REFERENCE TO ‘GI JANE-(Demi Moore) and NOT VULGAR….as we’ve certainly heard in the past from ‘Whoopie’ who is speaking out about Holly-WoodHead Elites…She’s a Hypocrite…as we ALL recall her stand up w/Billy Crystal and Robin Williams..She’s outraged, but she’s a Fake and a Hypocrite…who always looks like a Bag Lady!!!

The president of Shiraz University in Iran offered free tuition for any of the American pro-Hamas students causing disruption on college campuses if their actions resulted in expulsion.

“Students and even professors who have been expelled or threatened with expulsion can continue their studies at Shiraz University, and I think that other universities in Shiraz, as well as Fars Province, are also prepared,” Mohammad Moazzeni, the school’s leader, told the state-owned Press TV.

The Associated Press reported that more than 2,000 individuals have been arrested at various college locations throughout the U.S. in recent demonstrations against Israel’s military operations in Gaza.

Several other universities in Iran have reportedly joined the endeavor. Shahid Beheshti University’s president, Mahmoud Aghamiri, said that his institution has “considered scholarships for these students and will fully pay for their education, dormitory, and stay.”

Foreign Desk News reports that notable violent incidents have occurred at Brown University, Columbia University, California State Polytechnic University, Emerson College, Emory University, George Washington University, New York University, the University of North Carolina, Portland State University, Yale University, and the University of California at Los Angeles.

Pro-Islamic Republic regime-controlled media outlets in Iran broadcasted live images of Thursday’s confrontations between police and anti-Israel agitators at UCLA, where at least 200 arrests were made.
