It takes 20 years to build great reputation and 20 seconds to ruin it
Chris overstepped, and Will is a person just as much as us: he has feelings, he can be stressed, he can overreact and he can make mistakes. We all do. Will has already apologised for his action, and I am a 100% certain Will really regrets what happened. Now we should leave what has happened in the past, and not insert ourselves in other peoples business.
I can only imagine the emotional trauma of being physically assaulted, publicly, while millions of people watch.
2、The Academy发布了一份声明，表示谴责威尔史密斯在周日晚上的奥斯卡颁奖典礼上的行为，并将正式审查他对主持人Chris Rock的掌掴，最坏结果是开除他的会籍。
5、一位接近Chris Rock的消息人士告诉TMZ（美国在线旗下的一个娱乐新闻网站：Thirty Mile Zone），克里斯·洛克并不知道Jada Pinkett Smith（史密斯妻子）患有脱发症。
Also the, “more men need to be like this”. This is a broken man trying to prove something and ended up ruining one of the biggest nights of his life. No real women would want that for her man.
Actually this ban on Will May be a blessing in disguise, its obvious to everyone it’s time for him to seek help and whatever he is going through is not healthy and needs to be addressed.
The moment of Chris Rock’s reaction was the moment he outclassed the entire film industry. The joke will be forgotten. The name of the movie will be forgotten. Chris Rock took an intense moment and turned it into comedy while still maintaining a lot of professionalism and moving on from it. Mr. Rock’s composure and grace under pressure will be remembered. Chris managed the whole situation with such a dignity, profesionality and class, admiring him for that!
