Will Smith Gets 10-Year Oscars Ban Over Chris Rock Slap At the Oscar Awards 2022 CeremonyWill
Smith
Gets
10-Year
Oscars
Ban
Over
Chris
Rock
Slap
At
the
Oscar
Awards
2022
Ceremony

The
Tony
Award
organisers
on
Friday
(April
22)
released
a
letter
informing
attendees
that
they
have
a
“strict
no
violence
policy”.
The
letter
added
that
any
“perpetrator” will
be
immediately
removed
from
the
ceremony
if
any
incident
takes
place.
The
letter
also
mentioned
several
other
rules
including
a
dress
code
and
COVID-19
policies,
which
require
attendees
to
be
fully
vaccinated.

The
letter
came
after
Will
Smith
slapped
Chris
Rock
on
stage
for
a
joke
referencing
Smith’s
wife
Jada
Pinkett
Smith.
Chris
suggested
Pinkett’s
bald
look
felt
like
she
was
preparing
for
a
sequel
to

G.I.
Jane.

The
joke
did
not
go
down
well
with
Will
and
his
wife
Jada
who
suffered
from
hair
loss
due
to
alopecia.
Smith
also
swore
at
Chris
after
returning
to
his
seat
and
screamed
at
Chris
to
keep
his
wife’s
name
out
of
his
“f*****
mouth.”

Tony
Awards
also
delayed
its
nominations
announcement
by
a
week
from
May
2
to
May
9
citing
changes
among
Broadway
releases.
The
eligibility
cutoff
date
for
the
2021-2022
season
was
delayed
to
May
4.
