    What Will Smith did was unacceptable but to hear the word TRAUMATIZING being thrown around by these white celebrities is lowkey a reaffirmation of white privilege for me. People dying in Ukraine is traumatising, slavery is traumatising, the effects of the pandemic are traumatising, Harvey Weinstein actions were traumatising but Will Smith slapping someone on stage is no way traumatising. shocking, absolutely, sickening , yes ( briefly) but traumatising? Come on now. I am not defending him but lets not get overdramatic. Its not like this the first time someone has ever slapped anyone, the only difference is that this happened on TV. I will say this again, what he did reinforces black stereotypes and thats what pissed me off the most.

    Yep, the response has been way over the top. You’d think he’d beaten him to a bloody pulp or pulled a knife on him judging by some of the responses. Sorry, but if you’re going to joke about people’s health problems in an ableist fashion or go below the belt and mock a black woman’s appearance you deserve what’s coming to you. That’s all I’ll say.

    Going forward the Oscars need to keep the personal jokes to a minimum. It’s clear that the caustic discourse of everyday life and social media sludge on a daily basis has made jokes like this more hurtful. When everything is going below the belt and personal attacks are more common due to the internet age I think the Academy needs to set an example and just focus on honoring film. The Jada joke was tasteless and would’ve been taken more seriously if it was aimed at a white woman with alopecia. It’s quite clear the Kirsten Dunst seat filler joke didn’t land either. Film Twitter complained about jabs at TPOTD and Last Duel. Just quit with these terrible unfunny jokes.

    Boycott her as well. Leave it to them to find themselves in yet another entanlgement and laugh and party about it. She can’t act and he is a moron that can….let’s see how their careers go down the tubes now….dersrvadly so.

    Jada is actually a really good actress. What are you talking about?

    Smith just resigned his Academy membership, before he could be suspended or expelled by BOG.

    I find it admirable of him to resign and since he’s willing to accept any other consequences if the Academy decides so. Plus, he got his Oscar already and I think he’s content with that.

    I honestly think its about that time he start directing ala Denzel Washington/Clint Eastwood/Robert Redford. I can totally see him doing down that path.

    If only he had controlled himself. We were all rooting for him but his arrogance got the best of him.

    However it was a very smart move to resign and there is not much that the Academy can do now other than banning him from future ceremonies. The award is his, fair and square, and if the Academy attempts to take it away they will dig themselves a deep hole.

    Another thing AMPAS could do is ban him from being nominated for future Oscars for a specified period of time, or forever, with the opportunity to apply at a future date for future eligibility, if the Board of Governors so chooses.

    Yeah that would be some bullshit. The Academy would look tyrannical if they ban him from future nominations.  Most members are not going to vote for him anymore by default after this so there is no need for a ban.

    Either way this is lose-lose situation for everyone.
