“I Would Have Slapped Him Back” : Steve Harvey Reacts To Will Smith-Oscar Slap

Published

on

Will Smith has lost his respect, according to Steve Harvey, who called his Oscars slap a “punk move.”

Will Smith and Chris Rock’s infamous encounter at the 94th Annual Academy Awards has been two months. Many celebrities have since expressed their opinions on the situation, with Harvey being the most recent to do so.

In addition to expressing his displeasure with Will Smith’s behavior at this year’s Oscars, the veteran comedian chastised the Oscar winner for delivering that slap to Chris Rock, which he called a “punk move.”

During his speech, Steve Harvey didn’t hide his feelings about the slap heard around the world.

The Family Feud host admitted that, while he is a devout Christian, he does not believe his faith would have allowed him to react rationally if he had been in Chris Rock’s shoes on Oscar night.

“I’m a Christian, but I’m very immature. I’m not particularly religious. On a scale of 1 to 10, I’d rate myself as a 2. “That’s the level of Christianity I’m comfortable with,” Harvey said. “Slap T.D. Jakes, and he’ll turn the other cheek.” Did you slap me? Jada [Will’s wife] would have to move out of the way if you sat back in your seat. That describes the kind of Christian I am.”

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, which covered the event, Steve Harvey referred to Will Smith’s slap as a “punk move,” later adding, “I lost a lot of respect for him.”

In April, the group announced that, in addition to accepting Smith’s resignation from the Academy, it had decided that the actor would be barred from attending Academy events or programs for the next ten years.

Smith’s resignation letter stated, “I have directly responded to the Academy’s disciplinary hearing notice, and I will fully accept any and all consequences for my conduct.”

“My behavior at the 94th Academy Awards ceremony was shocking, painful, and inexcusable.” Chris, his family, many of my dear friends and loved ones, all those in attendance, and global audiences at home are among those I have hurt. I betrayed the Academy’s trust.

“I denied other nominees and winners the opportunity to celebrate and be recognized for their outstanding work.” I’m devastated. I want to refocus attention on those who have earned it, and allow the Academy to return to the incredible work it does to support creativity and artistry in film. As a result, I am resigning from membership in the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and will accept any further consequences imposed by the Board. Change takes time, and I am committed to doing the work necessary to ensure that violence never again triumphs over reason.”

He Was A Controlling Partner : Johnny Depp’s Ex-Girlfriend, Ellen Barkin Testifies

Published

on

Ellen Barkin, who dated Johnny Depp in the 1990s, testified that while the two were dating, Depp tried to constantly monitor her.

Depp is suing his ex-wife, Amber Heard, for $50 million after she wrote an op-ed in the Washington Post in 2018 alleging domestic violence. Depp was not named in the article, but his lawyers claim she was referring to him indirectly, and it has harmed his career ever since.

Heard, 35, testified earlier in the trial, describing numerous instances of physical and emotional abuse by Depp, all of which Depp has denied, claiming he was the victim.

“I had a scratch on my back once that got him very, very angry because he insisted it came from me having sex with a person who wasn’t him,” Barkin, now 68, said in the video.

Barkin said Thursday that the “Pirates of the Caribbean” actor was often using drugs and/or drinking alcohol while they were together, saying it affected their relationship allegations which Heard made in the trial too.

Barkin also claimed that Depp threw a wine bottle at her while they were filming “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.” She claimed Depp threw the bottle while fighting with friends in a hotel room.

Barkin claims that her relationship with Depp lasted three to five months and was more sexual than romantic.
