I thought about killing my father - American actor, Will Smith confesses

Will Smith has been barred from attending any Academy events, including the Oscars, for 10 years after slapping comedian Chris Rock on stage for making fun of his wife Jada Pinkett Smith.

The board of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, which organizes the Oscars, made the announcement today, April 8, after meeting in Los Angeles to discuss possible sanctions.

The statement added: “The 94th Oscars were meant to be a celebration of the many individuals in our community who did incredible work this past year; however, those moments were overshadowed by the unacceptable and harmful behavior we saw Mr. Smith exhibit on stage.
