According to David Spade, The Academy did not bother much about the Chris Rock and Will Smith altercation. Well, Chris Rock personally did not file a lawsuit, but The Academy did not strongly condemn Smith’s actions either. Unfortunately, Spade feels the problem lies in the emptiness of the repercussions. He said, “Yeah, they (The Academy) didn’t seem to do a whole hell of a lot about it.”

“I mean, I had heard they went up and asked Will Smith if he wanted to leave. And he (Will Smith) said no. No one wants to get in the police car. I think they said, ‘hey, they want you to get off.’ And he goes, ‘no, I’m good.’ And they go, ‘okay,'” Spade added by saying.
