The idiots who run the Oscars gave Will Smith an amazing gift on Friday.
for Comedian Chris Rock violently assaulted Taking to the stage in front of millions of viewers after Rock made a joke about Smith’s wife Jada Pinkett Smith was the 53-year-old actor banned for the next 10 years the Oscars.
We should all be so lucky!
Smith, who covered a glamorous primetime show like 2 A.M. in a Street Bar in Wichita, is egregiously getting to keep the gleaming best actor statuette he won for “King Richard,” which is now safe on the shelf alongside his hard-fought 10 Children can choose awards.
No criminal charges A complaint was filed against the actor for rushing at another man, hitting him so hard it made a noise in a 3,400-seat theater, and then yelling, “Knock my wife’s name out of your friggin’ mouth!” in live tv
And if it current inactivity is an indication of thisthe FCC will leave him in peace.
Imagine how difficult this situation must be for this poor A-lister. Smith’s net worth is $350 million and he is nursing his emotional wounds at one $42 million mansion in Calabasas, California. The 1,500-thread-count Egyptian cotton sheets are certainly tear-stained. And Krug must be running out, too exhausted to ask his personal assistant to buy more. These are difficulties that you and I can scarcely fathom.
And now, Smith’s only consequence from the academy for a crime that would earn almost anyone else in the world a visit from a cop and his employer’s ax is that he can’t attend the Oscars for a decade. (Smith himself chose to resign from the Academy.)
This…is a punishment?
Keep in mind that Smith isn’t exactly Meryl Streep, with a reserved seat at the Oscars like it’s a bar table at Rao’s. King Richard was his first Oscar nomination since 2007’s The Pursuit of Happyness 15 years ago. The only photographic evidence that Smith had attended the Academy Awards for some reason since 2010 was when he was presenter in 2014.
You see, banning Will Smith from the Oscars is like banning me from the gym: I wasn’t planning on going there anyway. The gym is boring and pushes me to my limits. So does the Oscars. Smith does prestige films as often as I do push-ups, and he probably never would have been nominated again. This ban is completely pointless.
But what did we expect from our hypocritical Hollywood overlords?
Isn’t it so typical how filmmakers, when they’re not violently attacking comedians or committing heinous #MeToo crimes, lecture us ad nauseam about our behavior and our beliefs and our responsibilities in our normal world that they despise so much when they treat their own hugely unstable community like a kindergarten full of toddlers who can’t tie their shoes yet? Today they sent the tearful Little Willy to the time-out corner. That’s it.
If you need more proof that celebrities don’t believe they are bound by the same ground rules as you and I, here it is folks!
Now, Will Smith will have the pleasure of doing what most Americans already do: not watching the Oscars.
