    Smith Resigns From Oscars Academy

    Will Smith has resigned from the body that awards the Oscars, five days after he assaulted comedian Chris Rock during a live global broadcast.

    The actor said his actions, which overshadowed Hollywood’s glitziest night of the year, were “shocking, painful and inexcusable.”

    “The list of those I have hurt is long and includes Chris, his family, many of my dear friends and loved ones, all those in attendance, and global audiences at home,” Smith said.

    “I betrayed the trust of the Academy.  |I deprived other nominees and winners of their opportunity to celebrate and be celebrated for their extraordinary work. I am heartbroken.”

    After making a joke about Rock’s close-cropped hair, Smith stormed the stage and slapped him across the face in front of the Dolby Theatre audience, leaving them all speechless.

    Jada Pinkett Smith suffers from alopecia, a hair-loss disorder.

    Upon returning to his seat, he unleashed a torrent of foul-mouthed abuse at Rock, who had been universally commended for his cool demeanor and ability to restore order.

    In less than half an hour following the shocking incident, Smith was given the best actor Oscar for his performance in the sports biography “King Richard.”

    There have been conflicting reports in recent days over whether Smith was asked to leave the ceremony, with the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences saying he refused to go.

    The group said this week it was starting disciplinary action against Smith — only the fifth Black man to win the movie world’s higest individual award for a man — and warned he could face a rare expulsion.

    But on Friday, Smith pre-empted that punishment.

    “I am resigning from membership in the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, and will accept any further consequences the Board deems appropriate.

    “I want to put the focus back on those who deserve attention for their achievements and allow the Academy to get back to the incredible work it does to support creativity and artistry in film.”
