Do you need a break? Hollywood punishes Will Smith for 'the slap,'"
The world froze for three seconds when Will Smith punched Chris Rock in the face in front of everyone at the 2022 Academy Awards.
Everyone then immediately realised that there would be repercussions. And that's exactly what's happened.
Will Smith won the Best Actor Oscar for 'King Richard' despite this incident, so it's reasonable to assume that it's now just a sour memory.
You only have to look at Will Smith's new demeanour to see the shift. The next day, he apologised to Chris Rock, but not in his Oscars acceptance speech.
Will Smith has already begun to pay the price for his two blunders: attacking a coworker live on air and cursing on television, both of which are strictly prohibited.
Because Chris Rock declined to press charges, Will Smith was spared the consequences of his retaliatory kiss.
