The Academy of motion picture, Arts and sciences has announced its disciplinary actions against actor, Will Smith over his Oscars slap.
The actor will not be permitted to attend the awards ceremony or any other Academy related event for the duration of his ban.
In a statement, the Academy’s board of Governors confirmed that the actor has now been ban for 10 years.
The ban restricts Smith from attending the Oscars or associated events either in person or virtually.
The Academy’s verdict follows Smith’s resignation after the event that saw him physically assault Chris Rock over a joke the comedian made about his wife’s bald head at the Oscars.
According to multiple Hollywood media outlets, Netflix, earlier this week, pulled out of its ‘Fast and Loose’ thriller project which would have had Smith in its lead role.
