The movie and his performance were critically acclaimed. Will won a Bafta, a Golden Globe, a Screen Actor’s Guild Award, and an Academy Award for Best Actor.While being a celebrity and a blockbuster movie star in Hollywood most definitely has its perks, unfortunately, it does also mean that your life is constantly under scrutiny as well. Smith began acting in the early 1990s when he starred as a fictional version of himself in the sitcom ‘The Fresh Prince of Bel Air.’ The show was critically acclaimed and ran for 6 years. He is a multi-award-winning actor, comedian, rapper, music producer, singer, songwriter, producer, and entrepreneur who is known for a whole host of different roles.

Smith’s stock began to grow, and he began making music as a solo artist, while also acting as well. He starred in hits such as Bad Boys, Men in Black, and Independence Day.
At first, Will seemed to find the joke funny, yet after a disapproving scowl from his wife, he climbed up onto the stage and slapped Rock hard across the face.

While it goes without saying that Hollywood celebrities should expect to be in the limelight a lot, the problem is that the more famous you become, the more eyes you have on you, and inevitably, the more rumors and downright lies begin to circulate.
The 2022 Academy Awards Ceremony was supposed to be one of the highlights of his career, yet an incident that took place that night is still haunting him now, nearly a year later.Smith began his career as a musician, when he formed a hip-hop duo with himself as the ‘Fresh Prince’ along with DJ Jazzy Jeff. They released five albums and had numerous top 20 hits, including ‘Summertime.’Not wanting to be typecast, Smith began taking on more serious roles and received Academy Award nominations for his roles in Ali, and The Pursuit of Happiness.On Friday, the King Richard star appeared on My Next Guest Needs No Introduction With David Letterman, where he claimed that during a trip to Peru to consume ayahuasca, he had a vision which predicted that he would lose everything in his life, including his home and career. Dhar Mann, an entrepreneur and film producer, created the fifteen-minute short skit. The film, titled Movie Star SLAPS HOST AT AWARD SHOW, What Happens Is Shocking, opens with comedian Corey anad host of the event (played by Rishi Arya) joking about actor Elijah (played by Melvin Ward) losing weight. Corey went on to imply that the weight that had been lost by the actor has been transferred to his wife Angela (played by Shaunte Massard). To Will Smith’s chagrin, his Oscars slap has become a cultural phenomenon. A slew of memes regarding the subject have surfaced online. Not only has he been a source of amusement online, but he has also taken a number of professional blows. The actor’s Netflix arrangement to create a sequel to the hit film Bright has been terminated.

Corey then delivers an improper joke about Angela in the film. As the crowd and Elijah continue to chuckle at the jokes aimed at the woman, Elijah notices that his wife is not amused.As the film unfolds, Elijah realizes the consequences of his actions and apologizes in a press conference for resorting to physical aggressiveness during the event. In his apology, Elijah states:

Bloomberg also reported that his National Geographic series Pole to Pole has also been delayed for several months following the controversial Oscars moment.
As clips from the short film began to circulate on social media platforms such as TikTok, many netizens assumed Will Smith simply enacted the role of Elijah and in a classic life-imitates-art manner slapped Chris Rock in the face during this year’s Academy Awards. This, however, is not the case. As previously stated, Dhar Mann’s short video was released after the unfortunate moment on the award stage.Elijah then gets up and makes his way towards the stage to slap Corey in the face. As Elijah returns to his seat, he exclaims “Keep my wife’s name out of your mouth, Corey!”

In the 18-second YouTube video, Garfield walks up to a group of people and mouths the words: “What the f*** are you doing?”, seemingly copying Smith’s outburst.Pending an inquiry into the incident, the actor may be expelled, suspended or otherwise sanctioned – to be decided at the Academy’s next board meeting on 18 April.

In his subsequent apology to Rock, the King Richard actor said the 57-year-old comedian’s joke about “Jada’s medical condition” was too much for him to “bear”.
