The Issue: The Academy’s formal overview of Will Smith after he slapped Chris Rock at the Oscars.

Chris Rock can also be at fault and ought to be banned from the Academy Awards (“Oscar Wild,” March 29).

So he’s a comic. I watched the program, and I didn’t assume something in it was humorous in any respect. I don’t know who wrote the script for this present and the way a lot they obtained paid for this, however it was horrendous.

Both events are at fault: Rock for saying one thing that was not in the script, and Will Smith for his responses. He ought to have included everybody in his apology, together with Rock. The world had to wait 24 hours later to see the apology to Rock. Too late.

What’s occurring on the streets — no penalties for critical crimes — is now occurring on the stage.

A celeb offended by a innocent joke can a slap a comic in full view of hundreds of thousands and swagger again to his seat with out worry of reprisals.

Be cautious, Academy (and America): It’s a slippery slope to utter anarchy.

I need to take the time to applaud Smith for defending his spouse, Jada Pinkett Smith, as the butt of the joke in Rock’s current monologue at the Oscars present.

Rock was fallacious to make enjoyable of the well being situation of anybody. With the world being PC about every thing, a well being situation ought to be at the high of the checklist.

Although violence is fallacious, as a spectator, I obtained offended myself. I can solely think about the anger that Will felt.

His motion doesn’t take away from his work. Therefore, his Oscar shouldn’t be taken away.

One factor nobody has talked about: Smith would by no means have slapped a person who was youthful and greater than him. If Jason Mamoa or Channing Tatum made the GI Jane joke, Will would have remained seated.

That is the basic instance of a bully and a coward. As we used to hear all the time: “Pick on someone your own size!”

His award ought to be revoked and he ought to have been taken out of the ceremony instantly.

Patricia Keane

After Smith’s psycho assault on Rock over his considerably insensitive however largely innocent joke, can we count on cancel tradition to rear its ugly head and destroy Smith’s profession? It definitely ought to if we’re to imagine everyone seems to be held to the identical normal.

For that matter, Smith ought to have been escorted off the ground instantly after slapping Rock and arrested for assault, whether or not Rock selected to press prices or not.

Finally, the Academy wants to present some semblance of integrity and take again Smith’s award.

The Academy’s inaction, apart from stating it doesn’t condone violence, is tantamount to excusing Smith’s inexcusable conduct. It simply goes to present there’s a double normal in Hollywood.

Bert Wedemeyer

Bensonhurst

The Academy ought to conduct a proper overview of Rock in addition to Smith. Rock began the downside together with his hurtful, crude and inconsiderate ridiculing remarks about Smith’s spouse’s medical situation.

Rock mustn’t get a free cross, and he mustn’t symbolize the Academy once more. That was not comedy.

During the Oscars spectacle and past, Rock carried on and remained composed, as onerous as that should have been.

Rock is the higher man and the lone skilled right here. Smith is an sudden title added to my private “never watch” checklist.

First, I imagine that entire slap state of affairs was a publicity stunt as a result of no one is watching the Oscars anymore — however after the slap, lots of people are speaking about the present.

Second, one factor has nothing to do with one other. If Smith acquired the award due to his efficiency, then he deserves it. Period.
