Will Smith ruined his career?

Yes, no, or maybe? What do you guys think about the slap that was heard around the world? It's all anyone can talk about. Smith's actions overshadowed the whole ceremony.

Just in case anyone hasn't seen it, here's the video:

It's quite shocking. I originally thought it was planned out, but I guess not. I'm not sure if Will Smith ruined his career, but he made Chris Rock awfully popular again.

Sad! I cannot believe that he wasn't escorted out of the Oscars by the police. I mean, come on. I see where he has resigned from the academy. I thought it was all staged at first too.

Unpopular opinion here, but I don't think it was that big a deal. Aren't those two friends? It seemed like part of the act to me.

At first I thought it was an act. I don't anymore. Too much has come out after.
I think it's ridiculous what he did. Chris Rock is a comedian.

There were a lot of possible responses, but the slap was what happened. It's great that he cares for his wife, and the joke wasn't appropriate. However, violence isn't necessarily the answer, and I don't know how it just came to that.

Honestly I thought it was a joke too. I really didn't put too much thought into it. I would not have even known the Oscars were on until I read about this the next day. I heard he was suspended for 10 years now.
