The Hollywood world was shaken after Oscar winner Will Smith (King Richard, Fresh Prince of Bel-Air) hit host and comedian Chris Rock on live television.
After one GI Jane 2 joke made by Rock against Jada Pinkett Smith, who made a low blow to her hairless caused by alopecia, her husband Will Smith interrupted the 2022 Oscars to give Chris Rock a blow.
The incident destroyed the Internet and calls for cancellations for Will Smith were made.
After I Am Legend (2007) gave an official apology to Chris Rock, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences officially banned Will Smith from future Oscar events for the next 10 years.

Unfortunately, Will Smith’s public image is forever tarnished. Smith is one of the most iconic and recognizable actors in history, and he’s heading into all aspects of entertainment, including theme parks.
Men in Black: Alien Attack at Universal Studios Orlando Amusement Park – home of Diagon Alley of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, The Simpsons in Springfield, USA, and A fairytale – is one of the most famous pieces of entertainment at the massive Resort.
After getting off the breathtaking Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit, Men in black (1997) fans can enjoy the excitement of the streets of New York City while fighting an invasion of dangerous aliens.
This classic shoot-em-up attraction allows guests to use the S4 Alienators to defeat all uninvited guests, allowing Park assistants of all ages to enjoy the thrill of MIB and more.
After the Will Smith event at the Oscars, this Men in black attraction is not the same for some guests.
In a recent Twitter post from Universal Orlando, some fans are calling for the replacement of Men in Black: Alien Attack:
I think it’s time for them to retire at the age of 22.

On Universal Orlando Resort’s official Instagram, several fans shared their opinions on the future of this beloved attraction with a fan, @steelcitytoday, writes:
I bet Will Smith would like to be able to use that memory wiper device worldwide right now.
I hit the red button harder than Will Smith hit Chris Rock.
Men in Black: Alien Attack is one of the most popular and “classic” attractions in Universal Studios Orlando. It is clear that Universal will NOT replace this amusement at a time when the same applies A fairytale and more.
Nevertheless, it is interesting to see some opinions as the previously mentioned tweets do not represent the universal society as a whole.
