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.

trump twitter clash

Sorry left wing freedom of speech haters, Elon Musk says he is more than willing to have former President Donald Trump back on Twitter.

During an exclusive interview with the Financial Times Live’s Future of the Car conference, the Tesla and SpaceX billionaire spoke to Peter Campbell about his ambitions for Tesla and his desire to become the world’s largest carmaker by 2030.

Musk also emphatically stated he would reverse the “morally wrong” and “flat out stupid” ban Twitter imposed upon Trump after the January 6th Capitol riots.

“Permanent bans should be extremely rare and really reserved for accounts that are bots, or scam, spam accounts . . . I do think it was not correct to ban Donald Trump,” Musk said.

“I think that was a mistake, because it alienated a large part of the country and did not ultimately result in Donald Trump not having a voice.”
