He showed no remorse about slapping his colleague. Smith also partyed wildly after the a.ward ceremony. It wasn't until a few months later that Smith officially issued an apology to Rock through a six-minute clip. The reason was that Rock refused to speak directly to Smith.

Kelcey Kintner, director of the crisis management company Red Banyan (USA), assessed that Will Smith had suffered heavy consequences after the incident. Before the slap incident, Will Smith had signed a contract to act in a Netflix film project. But the project was put on hold until Sony decided to make Bad Boys: Ride or Die.

Previously, both sides had the intention of "making amends", wanting to see which side would boldly cooperate with Smith first after the scandal. In fact, Hollywood can ignore all mistakes, but the film's failure outside the box office is the worst "mistake".

The movie King Richard (2021) once brought Will Smith an Oscar. The film has an investment budget of 50 million USD, but sales from the box office only reach 39 million USD.
