The 2022 Academy Awards got a little spicy when Will Smith went up on stage and slapped comedian Chris Rock across the face. Whether you think it was staged or real, Will Smith has been banned from attending the Academy Awards for the next 10 years. Many people were outraged at his actions, others seemed to say "meh" and yet a third group felt he was standing up for his wife, albeit odd.
The "Smith slap" happened on national TV, in front of a live audience. Chris Rock showed incredible composure after it happened and as they say, "The show went on".
Later that night Smith actually won an Academy Award for his work in the movie, "King Richard". The person he was portraying, Richard Williams, felt that Will Smith's actions marred both the award and what the movie stood for overall.
So, what do you think? Let us know.
