About ten seconds after Chris Rock joked that Jada Pinkett Smith was going to be in GI Jane 2 at the 2022 Oscars, the energy of the ceremony changed. Will Smith took the stage and slapped Rock in the face, sending a shocking wave of silence across the room and onto social media in a frenzy. Smith later won the Best Actor trophy for his work King Richard, but until that happens? Most people were confused. What. Just. Did it happen?
Until the next morning, it was obvious: the echoes of this slap were going to flow in Hollywood for quite some time to come. And not just in the form of essays and statements. Last Friday, Smith announced that he was resigning from the Academy, adding:
“My actions at the 94th Academy Awards were shocking, painful and unforgivable. The list of those I have hurt is long and includes Chris, his family, many of my best friends and loved ones, all in attendance and global audience at home. “
And now, with the incident officially a week behind, Smith is beginning to see tangible effects after his actions at the Oscars – as well as those that are going to hurt his results. Smith’s upcoming movie on Netflix Fast and relaxed reportedly has slowed production, per The Hollywood Reporter. The film, which had already lost its director before the Smiths quarrel, is supposed to have been re-prioritized after the Oscars. (It is not difficult to imagine that it would have a ramp up Priority was given to the night without Smith’s outburst.) Smith was to star in the film, which tells “the story of a crime boss who loses his memory after an attack.”
This news comes after another derailment of Smith’s work. Also according to The Hollywood ReporterSmith The first 40 pages of the script for Bad Boys 4but this production has also slowed for the time being.
Smith has had a productive career spanning four different decades. His name, for the longest time, was that of the undeniably “good guy”. The news that followed Sunday’s brawl proves that this, at least, will be a major blow to Smith’s path. “Its brand is currently the world’s most damaged product,” said public relations expert Mike Paul The New York Times. If and when Smith works again — this city loves coming back! —The road to redemption will be long.
