After what happened last weekend, the Academy of Arts and Cinematographic Sciences announced that they would be investigating Will Smith and there was the possibility that the actor had to return the Óscar that He won during the ceremony. As
The Hollywood Reporter managed to be made with the statements of Smith , where he explains why he decided to give up his membership of the Academy **:
"I have responded directly to the disciplinary audience notice of the Academy and I will accept each and every one of the consequences of my behavior. My actions in the none-fourth presentation of the Academy Awards were impressive, painful and inexcusable. The list of people that I have hurt is long, and includes Chris, the family of him, many of my dear friends and loved ones, all the attendees and the global audience at home.
I have a party left. I want to return to focus on those who deserve attention for their achievements and allow the Academy to return to the incredible work it does to support creativity and art in cinema. Therefore, I renounce my membership at the Academy of Arts and Cinematographic Sciences, and I will accept any other consequence that the Council considers appropriate. "
The fate of Smith was going to be decided on April 18, where the actor would have the opportunity to expose him with the hope of not being expelled from the Academy . It seems that the actor knew there was not much to say about what happened with Chris Rock, ** so he preferred to resign voluntarily.
Editor's note: This will definitely shake the film industry, and we are certainly living an unprecedented event. Smith's resignation will give a lot to talk about, and it sounds like something complicated that the academy is willing to forgive him, and much more, restore him membership.
