Smith will also call on the Oscar winners “for the next 24 hours” to support his case – before the panel later this month.

An Oscar attendant who said

One Oscar attendant said Smith’s dance after the Vanity Fair party (pictured) did not help his purpose. “It does not say exactly, ‘I’m sorry for what I did and I’m ashamed.’ It’s more, “I do not care.” Smith apologized for the slap 24 hours later.

“Things are hanging in the balance. “He will write an official letter to apologize and essentially beg them for forgiveness,” the source close to the actor told the Sun.

“April 18 is D-Day, however – he will find out if he still has an Oscar, and most likely a career,” they continued.

The other works of the actor in the box, such as Bad Boys 4 and Apple’s slave drama, Emancipation, are now on the air as the studio leaders refuse to “choose a side too early”.

Smith injured the injury by defending the slap in the Best Actor speech and dancing with his family at the Vanity Fair party.

One of the Oscar attendees told the newspaper: “It does not say exactly, ‘I’m sorry for what I have done and I’m ashamed.’ It’s more, “I do not care.”

The dramatic development follows the revelation that Chris Rock refused to arrest Will Smith.

Oscar-winning producer Will Packer said Rock was asked if he wanted to remove Smith and bite him for a battery.

Packer says that the cops told Rock: “We’re going to get him, we’re ready to get him right now. You can push charges. We can arrest him, “said Good Morning America.

But Rock turned down the offer and replied: “No, I’m fine. “No, no, no,” Packer said.

Academy director Whoopi Goldberg insisted that Smith was asked to leave, but there were fears he was “manic” and would make a scene if security tried to physically escort him outside.

“I think he was asked to leave,” Goldberg told The View.

“Picture – returning from the break, now if [Smith] he is in a situation and he is having a hard time and you are trying to get him out the door and he is still on camera “.

He added that the producers and organizers of the Oscars even considered the possibility that Smith was going through “a manic moment, because it is not what he is known for, slapping people and more”.

Goldberg was not present at the Oscars and stressed that she was not speaking on behalf of the Academy’s board.

Chris Rock declined to comment, but the LAPD confirmed Sunday that it could still request a full police investigation.

Smith, meanwhile, is now facing formal disciplinary action with the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS).

He could face “suspension, expulsion or other sanctions” from AMPAS – including the removal of his Oscar.

The Academy wrote Wednesday: “In accordance with the Academy’s Code of Conduct, as well as California law, Mr. Smith is given at least 15 days’ notice to vote on his violations and sanctions and the opportunity to be heard in advance. by means of a written reply “.

Packer’s interview, which airs Friday at 7 a.m. on ABC, is coming According to intelligence sources, Rock, 57, was never asked if Smith should leave the ceremony after the attack.

“No one ever asked Chris if Will had to leave. They never consulted him. “It was Oscar producer Will Packer who made the final decision to let Will stay,” said one New York Post expert.

Witnesses claim that Packer approached the actor and said: “We do not want you to leave.”

Other experts reiterated that the producer was “the key” to allowing Smith to remain for the rest of the show.

Despite these allegations, Packer told the GMA that he did not speak directly with Smith at the Oscars.

Reports also claimed that Oscar President David Rubin and CEO Down Hudson had asked the actor in the Black Man to leave the ceremony after the emotional outburst.

The 53-year-old took to the stage at the Oscars on Sunday and hit the Rock presenter after the comedian told a joke about Pinkett Smith.

Rock’s wisecrack targeted Pinkett Smith’s buzzcut, a style he has embraced since being diagnosed with alopecia.

“Janta, I love you. “‘GI Jane 2, I look forward to seeing it,'” Rock told Pinkett Smith, whose shaved head resembled that of Demi Moore in the 1997 film Best Documentary Award.

It was believed that Packer told Smith

It was believed that Packer told Smith “We do not want you to leave”, but he has since said that the decision was in Rock.

Whether Rock knew Pinkett Smith was suffering from a hair loss condition is still unknown, but Smith responded with a smile and an angry warning “keep my wife’s name out of your mouth!”

Shortly afterwards, Smith was announced the winner of the Best Actor award and went up to pick up his statuette with standing ovations from many of his peers.

In his opening remarks, Smith apologized to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences – whose members vote on the awards and host the ceremony – but did not apologize to Rock.

Smith initially laughed at the attack, writing on Instagram Sunday night: “You can not invite people from Philly or Baltimore anywhere!”

However, as the seriousness of the situation became clear, Smith posted a public apology on Instagram 24 hours after the ceremony, saying he felt sorry for Rock. He said his behavior was “unacceptable and unjustified” and left him “ashamed”.

“I would like to apologize publicly to you, Chris,” he wrote. “I was out of line and I was wrong. I am ashamed and my actions were not indicative of the man I want to be. “There is no room for violence in a world of love and kindness.”

Pinkett Smith’s first public comment came in an Instagram post on Tuesday in which she said: “This is a time for healing and I’m here for it.”
