Will Smith Oscar for King Williams, but he slaps Chris Rock!

Will Smith's slap on the stage of the 2022 Academy Awards ceremony, 94th edition ever, to Chris Rock caused a veritable tsunami of controversy, after Rock made an unhappy joke on the alopecia of the Smith's wife, Jada Pinkett Smith.

According to New York Post, there is a possibility that the Academy may remove the recognition from the actor under the rules. Academy said he does not condone the violence in any way but for the moment there is no confirmation on the possible decision to remove the Oscar just given to Will Smith for his performance in King Richard.

The Academy has quite strict rules regarding these situations and among the comments of colleagues the harsh reaction of Judd Apatow stands out: "He could have killed him, it's pure rage and rage out of control.

They've heard a million jokes about them in the last three decades. I'm not a freshman in the world of Hollywood and comedy. He's lost his mind." A source from Hollywood told the American newspaper: "It's basically an assault, everyone was so shocked in the hall, there was really unease.

I think Will doesn't want to return the Oscar but he who knows what will happen now." The story of the Williams family has reached the cinema. In January of this year, King Richard arrived on cinemas: it is the story of the father and coach Richard Williams, ready to bring his two daughters, Venus and Serena, to the glory of women's tennis.

The film, which focuses on the training of two of the most successful tennis players in the history of this sport, has been very successful. Not only at the box office, but also by critics: King Richard is nominated for the Golden Globes and, above all, for the Oscars.

The film is featured in numerous categories: Best Film, Best Actor (Will Smith), Best Supporting Actress (Aunjanue Ellis), Best Original Screenplay, Best Editing and Best Original Song (Be Alive, by ​​Beyoncé Knowles- Carter & Darius Scott).
