Will Smith’s shocking Oscars moment has garnered massive media attention. Recently, the Saturday Night Live’s host Colin Jost has reacted to the latest developments in the actor controversy.
Although the Academy recently announced that the bad boys The actor has now been banned from acting and attending Oscar events for the next 10 years, Jost questioned whether Smith’s punishment is enough for his performance.
On the show’s latest episode, which aired on April 9, Jost addressed the issue during the Weekend Update segment. He joked, “As punishment for slapping Chris Rock, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences banned Will Smith from attending the Oscars for 10 years. But is that a punishment?
“He can still be nominated. You may even win a prize. You can even go to the after party. He just doesn’t have to attend the four-hour ceremony where someone will definitely make fun of his wife again,” he added.
Jost, who co-hosted the Emmys with Michael Che, suggested a punishment for the Men In Black actor, saying, “Honestly, I think a real punishment would be to make Will Smith host next year’s Oscars. Because trust me, nothing will make you question your choices in life more than hosting an award show.”
