The Academy of Motion Pictures Issues Its Punishment For Will Smith Following Oscars Slap

The board of governors of the Academy of Motion Pictures has decided the punishment it wants to dish out to Will Smith, and it's a pretty painful one. Will has been banned from attending any academy programs or events for the next 10 years.

The statement begins, "The Board [of Governors] 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."

The statement continues, "During our telecast, we did not adequately address the situation in the room. For this we are sorry. This was an opportunity for us to set an example for our guests, viewers, and our Academy family around the world, and we fell short — unprepared for the unprecedented."

The board also thanked Chris Rock, noting, "We want to express our deep gratitude to Mr. Rock for maintaining his composure under extraordinary circumstances."

It's unknown what lies ahead for Will following the incident, but a few possibilities are explored in the video.
