Following the Oscars slap, the NBC comedic series is permanently banning the actor, according to aceshowbiz.com.
The “King Richard” actor won’t ever be welcomed back to “SNL” because of what he did to Rock at the March event, claims Radar Online. Since he was a star of the program from 1990 to 1993, the comic was once a significant component of it.
After what he did to Chris, “Smith will never be asked back to ‘SNL,'” a source reportedly informed the website. No one wants the comedian from the temple around anymore because of the show.
The producers of the program are reportedly also concerned that if Smith returns, other notable celebrities would decide not to appear in the future. The source claims that if Will Smith was welcomed back, “SNL” would never again host a major star. If he was allowed into Studio 8H, stars would understandably stop watching the program. At the 2022 Academy Awards in March, Smith smacked Rock for his joke about Jada Pinkett Smith’s shorn head.
Then he again yelled at the comedian who was performing on stage to “keep the name of my wife out of your f**king mouth!”
Smith has expressed regret for his actions during the live event several times.
The actor stated in a video released in July, “Everything is hazy. I’ll tell you, Chris, that I’m sorry. I regret my actions, and I’m willing to talk about them whenever you’d like.”
“I detest disappointing people. Knowing that I didn’t live up to people’s expectations of me affects me mentally and emotionally.”
I am sorry, and I’m working on being sorry without feeling embarrassed of myself, He went on. “I’m making an effort to stop considering myself to be a piece of crap.” “I’m human, and I made a mistake.”
Rock, however, didn’t appear to accept the apology since earlier this month, during his stand-up performance at London’s O2 Arena, he uttered the following: “F**k your hostage video.”
The Oscar-winning actor was further criticized by the speaker, who claimed that Smith had managed to portray a “perfect guy” for 30 years before revealing that he is “just as ugly as the rest of us.”
