Will Smith's ten-year ban from the Oscars has officially begun.

The icon received the heavy punishment after slapping Chris Rock in 2022.

Smith slapped the comedian for making a joke about his wife's baldness.

The 95th Academy Awards ceremony marked the actor's first year of punishment.

Smith and his family used their absence to support the life coach guru, Jay Shetty.

The famous family joined other celebrities at Shetty's Love Rules program.

The show came days after Rock slammed Smith for the Oscars debacle in his Netflix special.

Sources claimed Smith was offended by the comedian's jokes.

The Academy head, Janet Yang, promised to avoid another Smith–Rock incident in 2023.
