Hollywood is actually implementing a repercussion for bad behavior, even if it is due to public outrage leaving them with very little choice. Will Smith has been banned from attending the Academy Awards ceremony for ten years as punishment for slapping comedian Chris Rock.

The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences made the announcement Friday, following the slap nearly two weeks ago during the Oscars awards ceremony. Smith won the Oscar for his performance in King Richard, shortly after his outburst against Rock.

When Smith took stage to accept the award, he apologized to the Academy, though not to Rock. Even more disgusting, the entire crowd gave him a standing ovation. After the slap sparked public outrage, the Academy was pressured to act.

Nearly two weeks later, the Academy’s Board of Governors met on Friday to vote on a course of action. The Oscars were “overshadowed by the unacceptable and harmful behavior we saw Mr. Smith exhibit on stage,” Academy president David Rubin and CEO Dawn Hudson said in a statement.

“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.”

Will Smith reacted to a joke Rock had made about Smith’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, who said “Jada, I love you. G.I. Jane 2, can’t wait to see it.” Smith then walked up on stage and slapped Rock across the face. Once he got back to his seat, Smith shouted at Rock twice, telling him to keep “my wife’s name out your f***ing mouth.”

    Not only that, he then attended the official party where he was dancing, dining and drinking all night like a winner. To date people are unaware of this year’s Oscar’s winners. A shame.

    Just another fact of the “black ” life: fighting for NOTHING!
    No wonder chicago and new york have murder by fire arm rising! Them people cannot think calmly!
    I know my words are considered racist, but let’s be frank: What are the percentages on shows like COPS of seeing a black person committing the crime and LYING about it?
    Facts of life are just a bitch, aren’t they?
    When one can profile and be right 90% of the time!

Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey and Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry made headway in countering federal agents involved in suppressing what liberal tech labeled “misinformation” on social media.

The Attorneys General moved to release testimony from five Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) employees after learning of their participation in the Biden administration’s counter-“disinformation” efforts. On Wednesday, a Louisiana judge ordered the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to release the files.

Court documents dated Jan. 19 show  the agents participated. The judge’s motion Wednesday could shed light on a “switchboarding” tactic employed during the 2020 election, according to the order.

The lawsuit alleges that the defendants, which include the named individuals as well as President Joe Biden and top officials from a variety of federal agencies, “colluded and/or coerced social media companies to suppress disfavored speakers, viewpoints, and content on social media platforms by labeling the content “dis-information,” “mis-information,” and “mal-formation.”

The Daily Caller reports that the five CISA employees allegedly served as a “switchboard” to route requests from federal agencies to censor disinformation to various social media companies, according to the documents.

Switchboard work employed “an audit official to identify something on social media they deemed to be disinformation aimed at their jurisdiction,” top CISA election security agent Brian Skully testified in a deposition released Thursday.

“They couldforward that to CISA and CISA would share that with the appropriate social mediacompanies.”
