“I don’t have a whole bunch of shit about what happened, so if you came to hear that … I had a whole show that I wrote before this weekend and I’m still kind of processing what happened “, he said.

Chris promised, “Well, eventually I’ll talk about it and it’ll be serious and fun.”

The crowd erupted again when some started chanting, “F**k Will Smith.”

PENDING PUNISHMENT?

On the same day, the academy announced that the slap was a violation of its code of conduct.

The statement continued: “Things developed in a way that we could not have foreseen. While we would like to clarify that Mr. Smith was asked to leave the ceremony and refused, we also recognize that we could have handled the situation differently.”

Another part of the statement revealed: “The Board of Governors today began disciplinary proceedings against Mr. Smith for violations of the Academy’s standards of conduct, including improper physical contact, abusive or threatening behavior and endangering the integrity of the Academy.

“Mr. Smith will be given at least 15 days’ notice of his violations and sanctions and an opportunity to be heard beforehand through a written response.”
