Will Smith refused to leave Oscars after Chris Rock slap, Academy reveals as it considers expelling actor

The Independent says It has been revealed that Will Smith was asked to leave the Oscars after breaking the Academy’s code of conduct, but refused.

The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences has now begun “disciplinary proceedings” against Smith after he slapped comedian Chris Rock during the ceremony in Los Angeles on March 27.

“The Board of Governors today initiated disciplinary proceedings against Mr Smith for violations of the Academy’s Standards of Conduct, including inappropriate physical contact, abusive or threatening behaviour, and compromising the integrity of the Academy,” said a new statement. “At the next board meeting on April 18, the Academy may take any disciplinary action, which may include suspension, expulsion, or other sanctions.”
