Harry Lennix Suggests Will Smith Return His Oscar

Actor Harry Lennix openly suggested Will Smith to return his Oscar which he just won some time ago. According to him, this is a form of respect for the Oscar 2022 event which has been messed up by Will Smith.

The aftermath of Will Smith’s slapping action against Chris Rock on the 94th Oscar 2022 stage has become increasingly widespread, guys. After being suspended for 10 years from the Oscars, Will Smith is now required to return his Oscar.

Some parties also agree with the discourse, so the possibility of returning Will Smith’s Oscar trophy is very possible.

“At this point, the only person who can redeem Oscar’s integrity is (Will) Smith himself,” said Harry Lennix.

“He must understand the gravity of the offense he committed: slapping [Chris] Rock in a live broadcast on March 27 in front of millions of people on the Academy Awards stage.”

At its peak, Harry Lennix suggested Will Smith to return his Oscar to The Academy, as a form of respect for the biggest award event for all filmmakers in the world.

“Smith needs to send his gold trophy back to The Academy and publicly state something like this: ‘In honor of the 94 years of honor given to this award, I don’t feel worthy to be its custodian’,” said Lennix.

“Stains on the Motion Picture Academy can’t be fixed easily. The only hope for it to be returned properly would have to involve Smith voluntarily returning his award for best actor.”

Currently, Will Smith himself has been sanctioned by The Academy in the form of a ban from attending the Oscars both online and offline, the sentence is valid for the next 10 years.

“The Academy has decided that for a period of 10 years from April 8, 2022, Mr Smith will not be permitted to attend any academy events or programs, in person or virtually, including at the Academy Awards,” The Academy said in a statement.

“The 94th Oscars are meant to be a celebration of the many individuals in our community who did an outstanding job last year; however, those moments were overshadowed by the unacceptable and dangerous behavior we saw Mr. Smith shows on stage.” continued the announcement.
