Will Smith Meditates In India After Oscars Incident
Hollywood news and updates tease that Will Smith stepped foot in India for spiritual purposes one month after the Academy incident.
During the 94th annual Academy Awards, Chris Rock was one of the presenters and he happened to make a joke about Jada Pinkett-Smith’s shaved head that was due to extreme hair loss or alopecia. However, the “Girls Trip” star wasn’t delighted by the statement, which led Will Smith to climb up on stage and slap the Saturday Night Live (SNL) alum in front of the crowd.
A day after the incident, the “King Richard” actor posted an apology statement on his social media account for showing “unacceptable and inexcusable” behavior at the Oscars. He publicly apologized to Chris Rock, the Williams family, his “King Richards” family, and the people behind the Academy for his wrong and “out of line” action. However, despite the public apology statement, the altercation resulted in Will Smith being banned from attending the Oscars for 10 years.

“Considering all that has happened in the last few weeks, the Smith family has been focusing on deep healing. Some of the discoveries around our healing will be shared at the table when the time calls. Until then… the table will continue offering itself to powerful, inspiring, and healing testimonies like that of our incredibly impressive first guest. Thanks for joining us,” the 50-year-old actress stated.
Will Smith – Netflix Cancels Will Smith’s ‘Bright 2’
Will Smith previously starred in the movie “Bright,” and played the role of Daryl Ward, an LAPD detective in the world, where humans and different mystical creatures coexist. Though the movie didn’t please the viewers very well, it was announced that it would be developed in the upcoming sequel.
However, four years later, it was reported that Netflix canceled the movie. Amidst the issues that the 53-year-old actor has faced these past weeks, Bloomberg reported that the Oscars incident has nothing to do with the cancellation of the sequel.
