“This action we are taking today in response to Will Smith’s behavior is a step toward a greater goal of protecting the safety of our performers and guests, and restoring trust in the Academy,” said the Academy’s president, David Rubin and CEO Dawn Hudson, said in a statement. statement. “We also hope that this can begin a time of healing and recovery for all involved and affected.”
In a brief statement in response to the sentence, Smith said, “I accept and respect the Academy’s decision.”

The US broadcast quickly cut the sound, but the international feed captured the entire interaction. Rock said, “Wow, Will Smith just terrified me.” Smith returned to his seat, where he yelled, “Keep my wife’s name out of your damn mouth!”
“Wow dude it was a GI Jane kidding,” Rock replied. Smith yelled again, “Keep my wife’s name out of your damn mouth!”
