SUICIDE SQUAD Star Will Smith Won't Face Charges For Slapping Chris Rock, But May Have To Return His Oscar!

Social media is still abuzz after the shocking events of last night's Academy Awards show, and we now have an update on potential charges Will Smith could face after slapping Chris Rock in the mush.

In one of the most shocking moments in the history of the Academy Awards broadcast, Will Smith slapped Chris Rock across the face after the comedian made a joke about Jada Pinkett Smith. Many believed it must be some sort of stunt at first, but the aftermath seemingly made it clear that the whole thing was very real.

The incident arose from Rock quipping, “Jada, I love ya. GI Jane 2 — can’t wait to see it,” while presenting Best Documentary Feature. The Matrix Resurrections actress, who has previously spoken publicly about her alopecia, was not impressed, and despite laughing at the joke initially, her husband then left his seat and struck Rock across the face.

The Suicide Squad star later won Best Actor for his performance in King Richard, and although he did apologize to the Academy and his fellow nominees, he didn't so much as mention Rock.

Smith could potentially face up to six months in prison and/or a hefty fine if Rock presses charges, but, for now, the Fargo actor has chosen not to pursue legal action.

“LAPD investigative entities are aware of an incident between two individuals during the Academy Awards program,” the Los Angeles Police Department said in a statement via Deadline. “The incident involved one individual slapping another. The individual involved has declined to file a police report. If the involved party desires a police report at a later date, LAPD will be available to complete an investigative report.”

Rock has six months to file a report, but even if he doesn't, Smith may still face repercussions as Insiders believe he might be asked to return his Oscar for violating The Academy's code of conduct.
