While Will Smith, the Chris Rock drama, seemed to be dying, a new report kept an eye on Will. As per the deadline, the Oscar-winning actor has resigned from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Will made a lengthy statement addressing his departure, noting that he was heartbroken.
“I have responded directly to the notice of the academy’s disciplinary hearing, and I will fully accept any and all consequences for my conduct. My work at the 94th Academy Awards presentation was shocking, painful and unforgivable, ”Will wrote. “The list of people I’ve hurt is long and includes Chris, his family, many of my dearest friends and loved ones, everyone in attendance, and a worldwide audience at home.”
The statement said, “I have betrayed the trust of the academy. I have deprived other nominees and winners of the opportunity to celebrate and celebrate for their extraordinary work. I’m very upset. I would like to return the focus to those who deserve attention for their achievements and let the Academy go back to the incredible work of supporting creativity and artistry in film. Therefore, I am resigning from the membership of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and will accept any further consequences if the Board deems it appropriate. “
Will promised to do what he could to ensure that no more violent incidents took place. The statement came just two days after the academy’s board of governors announced they had launched a disciplinary action against Will. As we have previously reported, the Academy stated that the Philadelphia Native Group violated the Code of Conduct. Roommates, we will keep you updated as the Board is scheduled to meet on 18th April
