We’re all aware of the Will Smith / Chris Rock situation that happened at the oscars. Right after the incident, Will Smith had to be admitted to a rehab clinic. The Oscar winner said, “I was under a lot of stress”.
The American actor was the star of the Oscars night when he slapped Chris Rock, because apparently, Rock was making fun of his wife, Jada Pinketh Smith. While he was cracking jokes (on which Smith himself was laughing), we couldn’t understand what took over him and he (literally) stood up and slapped Chris.
Many people on the Internet supported him saying, “that’s a great alpha man”, “defend your wife just like that!”. But can we really call it “defending your wife”? Will a great alpha man ever hit someone in front of the whole wide world? Or that’s okay because Chris wasn’t being respectful to his wife?

However, coming back to the subject, British Newspaper, The Sun reported: “The impact of the backlash has hit Will hard, so he will be getting help on dealing with stress.”
“It will be a high-level retreat”
“This is unquestionably the battle of his career. It will be a high-end retreat used by the rich and famous and he will be doing a lot of soul searching and working out how he can move forward,” continued telling’ The Sun’.
Will Smith hopes, according to the newspaper’s source, to return in time to save his career and reputation. Recall that, after the official apology, the actor has already been dismissed from the Academy of Motion Picture Oscars after the assault.

What was Will Smith’s reaction towards him being banned?
“I resign my membership in the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and will accept any other consequences that management deems appropriate,” Will Smith said in a statement.
Has Will Smith been cancelled?
Marca.com reports, “Will Smith may have won the Best Actor prize at the Oscar for his performance in ‘King Richard’, but there is going to be a meeting on Friday by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to determine whether it should be stripped from him following the debacle involving Chris Rock at the Oscars ceremony.”
“In fact, the last time that the Academy decided to rescind an award was over 50 years ago, as the documentary ‘Young Americans’ won an award in 1969 but had actually been released in 1967. It is also worth bearing in mind that Will Smith has already resigned from the Academy.”
His brand is currently damaged goods worldwide,” public relations expert Mike Paul told The New York Times when asked about Will Smith. It could be a while before we see Will Smith appearing in another film.
