50 Cent has reacted to Will Smith being banned from the Academy for 10 years.
“Got Damn they doing Will dirty. This is too harsh so he cant come back till he 63 years old. And the law suit ain’t even hit yet. SMH” he tweeted.

The Academy released a letter last week announcing the huge ban.
“The 94th Oscars were meant to be a celebration of the many individuals in our community who did incredible work this past year; however, those moments were overshadowed by the unacceptable and harmful behavior we saw Mr. Smith exhibit on stage,” the letter read.
“Today, the Board of Governors convened a meeting to discuss how best to respond to Will Smith’s actions at the Oscars, in addition to accepting his resignation,” the letter continued. “The Board has decided, for a period of 10 years from April 8, 2022, Mr. Smith shall not be permitted to attend any Academy events or programs, in person or virtually, including but not limited to the Academy Awards.”
