Let me tell you one thing – the Academy is not happy with Will Smith.

Smith apologized to the academy, but it took him an entire day to apologize to Chris Rock.
However, the bigger issue now is what Will Smith did after the slap.
Apparently, Smith’s team was asked to leave the Oscars by a very high-ranking member of the Academy, and his team refused to leave… and now that the rest of the Academy is fully aware of this, they are shocked and rather dismayed and looking at their options.
“Deadline Reported that the Academy is now revealing that the now Best Actor winner was actually requested to exit the Dolby Theater after striking Rock over a crack about Jada Pinkett-Smith’s hair. A request the King Richard star distinctly declined.
“While we would like to clarify that Mr. Smith was asked to leave the ceremony and refused, we also recognize we could have handled the situation differently,” the Academy said of the disturbing incident at the Will Packer produced 94th Academy Awards.
Though Smith was seen talking with Denzel Washington, Bradley Cooper and Tyler Perry almost right after slapping and screaming at Rock, it was actually a member of the Academy’s top leadership that sought to have the former Fresh Prince exit, I hear. In a move to avoid another blow-up, the request was not made to Smith directly, but through the actor’s flacks, it seems.”
