The Academy has launched disciplinary proceedings against Will Smith
Vita gazette – The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has launched disciplinary proceedings against actor Will Smith for punching comedian Chris Rock at the Oscars.
In a statement from the academy, the investigation started on the grounds that the actor “made inappropriate physical contact, acted aggressively and threateningly, and violated the core principles of the American Film Academy.”
According to the statement, after the event where the statuettes were presented, organizers asked Smith to leave the Dolby theatre, but the actor refused.
The Board will meet again on April 18.
