9:12 am
an entertainment journalist in washington, d. c. thanks for joining us. runs a will. smith has resigned from the motion picture academy where the slap is this an attempt to head off more serious penalties? do you think? in many ways it does seem that way. i think he effectively blunted the impact of whatever might come in the future. so yes, i would, i would agree that that's what, that's what's happening right now. and you think he's sort of got the academy out of an awkward situation by resigning sort of preemptively and anticipating a possible, you know, dismissal possibly. possibly it's, it's unclear what it would look like for that. i mean, who knows what they can do to him? now he's no longer a member, but he says that he is open to whatever actions become. and so if they do take actions it's, it's interesting to see how, how that, how that will play out. so possibly they can see that he cannot actually rejoin the
9:13 am
academy for x amount of years, but it's at this point, we don't know, we still have to win the see. do you think there's a possibility that this was somehow negotiated with the academy beforehand and possibly with, with chris rock and there's a, there's a play is a screen plato all this rehabilitation somehow that was so i do know that will smith met with the academy early this week, so of course multiple reports, there was a 30 minute call between will smith and the leadership at the academy and he supposed to apologize and said that he was open to whatever action they decide to go with. but i don't think chris rock is involved, chris rock has said that he hasn't report said that they haven't spoken to each other. so i don't think chris rock is in any way involved, but it's not far fetched to think that he teams when we can meet early this week. and just to come back to l. smith, i mean shortly after the slap he won an oscar. so is he just sort of taking his
9:14 am
ball and leaving it 30 minutes after the slab of he p one. the ask is lacking chords reports, the academy was trying to decide how to respond to it. and by the time, you know, you know, the kind of figure out their options, he won the award so they were kind of left out with no options. so taking his ball even, i think would be to retire at which i don't. i don't think that's what this is. he's just no part of the academy, which means he can only vote and nominees, i and probably can no longer be nominated. but beyond that, i don't think that will be taking his ball and leading on his career. ok, ron says meadow, a journalist in washington, d. c. thank you for that insight. thank you so much. you're washing dw news. here's a reminder of our main story. some 3000 residents of mary, opal have managed to flee the besieged city. but a red cross mission was forced to turn back due to dangerous conditions. for 100000
