    I lost all respect for him will never watch any of his shows or movies again. Nobody touches my Rock. It was a joke and will even laughed. Very violent man

    So you joined this board just to let us know that you will never watch his movies again? :lookaround:

  2. I think him resigning from the Academy is the right thing to do. It doesn’t really mean much to be part of it. It’s not that important to his career.

    I don’t think his career is over. It will take some time for people to forget about this. The video and the incident will probably keep popping up for the rest of his career. The only way for this entire issue to be over is to have a conversation with Chris Rock. It doesn’t have to be in front of cameras. Just talk privately and clear the air.

    it's a true tragedy that today marks the 35th anniversary of jjfp's rock the house and everyone is talking about the oscar fiasco

    According to Wikipedia it was released on April 7. So that’s still a couple of days.

    It would be great if Will or Jazz made a post about it. Or if we got a remastered edition or some unreleased tracks. But I guess it will just go by unnoticed. 

  4. Don’t know what to think about this. I’m not surprised they are doing a Red Table talk about it, kinda saw it coming. I wonder how it will play out. The only way this could really work is if they invited Chris Rock, sit down and have a openminded conversation. But then again, is it really necessary to do that publicly? Maybe they should handle it in private. But I guess that’s what society has come to.

  5. I read his book and I think he’s growing as a man. He’s letting go of that military discipline because maybe he just wants to be himself. Maybe he was sick of living like that and he realized that he was putting up an act, both on and off screen. If you ask me he’s searching for his true self. He said it in his apology: I am a work in progress.  

    I’ve been thinking about the incident for some time now and In all honesty, who are we to judge the guy really? He bitchslapped a guy because he was talking **** about his wife. I’m not saying it’s the right thing to do or that violence is the answer, but I guess some of us wouldn’t let that **** fly if they were talking about someone we loved. Sure, he did it on one of the biggest stages in the world. It got blown up by every media outlet in the world. It’s a bad example for kids and teens. Plus what makes it even worse is that everyone on social media gets the chance to give their opinion about it. Including us. We all have different opinions. We are all life long supporters of Will and we never ever thought he would be capable of doing something like this. That’s why our reactions are the way they are. But he apologized for it. And I can live with that. I hope he will talk about it on camera soon to put a stop to it and move on.

    I can see why people are losing respect for him and I totally understand if they put him in a different perspective. I’ll keep supporting him, listening to his music, watch his movies and shows. We all evolve and change. Will is doing the same. And I’m glad he is.

    I don’t see him doing music right away but it would be a great way to find himself. So I agree with @JumpinJack AJthat people might not want to see Will the actor, they want the Fresh Prince on the mic. It could be a great way for him to express himself. Who knows!

    I wish Will had done his apology as a video - it just reads like a PR statement cooked up by a publicist to me.

    I totally agree. He has been posting these inspirational videos for years but when it comes to apologizing for one of the biggest media storms in years he just puts up some text? Not enough if you ask me.

    p.s.  You know y'all can can contribute to this forum when things aren't crazy, right?  :sFun_doh2:

    Yeah, I check the forum on a daily basis. All it took for people to come back and start posting again was Will slapping Chris Rock. :biggrin: Anyway, it’s great to see some old heads back!

    I read the Puffy article a couple hours ago. He was also the first one to try and get them together at an after party. He mentioned it on stage.

    It’s been a weird day. Being a Will Smith, a lot of people have been texting me and asking for my opinion. I still can’t fully wrap my mind around it. I’m waiting on a statement from Will. I really hope he talks about soon.

  8. Glad to see some old names on this forum again. Too bad it took Will bitchslapping Chris Rock to get y'all back here! :-)

    I'm glad he finally won his Oscar. We all know that he deserves that Oscar. King Richard is a great movie and Will was amazing in it. It's just messed up that people will always remember him slapping Chris Rock. The thing is, if he didn't have this nice guy image all the time people wouldn't be so shocked about it. I'm not defending his actions, violence is never a good idea, but I guess he just lost it. He has been taking a lot of **** lately (might be his own fault because he's sharing everything with people these days) but there's just as much a guy can take. Should he have talked to Chris privately after the show? Maybe. Should he have mentioned it during his speech? Maybe. Should he have slapped him on one of the biggest stages in the word? NO! 

    We can't turn back time, it happened. Just wondering if he will make a statement about it. 

  9. I've been reading this book for a while now. I love all the music stuff. Too bad he didn't focus on Code Red at all. I love the story about him creating Summertime. 

    I'm almost finished with the book. I must admit that the later chapters are not as good as the first ones. Not my cup of tea.

    Heading to London soon to make sure we get there in plenty of time for the show. Will is already in London and Jeff has confirmed he is on his way. Should be a great show! I'll get some pictures and upload them on here :-)

    Have a great time! Looking forward to your pictures and videos.
