Will Smith punched Chris Rock in the face at the Oscars.

Actor Will Smith has submitted his resignation from the Academy of Hollywood, which awards the Oscars, after slapping comedian Chris Rock during the ceremony on Sunday, he announced Friday in a statement.

“I resign my membership in the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and will accept any other consequences that the Board deems appropriate,” the actor wrote in a statement published by the specialized magazine “Variety”.

In his letter, the famous interpreter cataloged his actions as “shocking, painful and inexcusable.”

“I betrayed the trust of the Academy. I deprived other nominees and winners of their opportunity to celebrate and be celebrated for their extraordinary work,” added the actor whose career began in the 1990s.
