“I am calling a board meeting for this Friday morning, April 8, at 9:00 am PT, rather than the previously scheduled April 18 meeting, to address possible sanctions for Will Smith in response to his actions during the Oscars broadcast on March 27,” Academy president David Rubin said in a letter obtained by CNN Wednesday.

“The April 18 date was set in accordance with California law and our Standards of Conduct because our agenda included possible suspension or expulsion of Mr. Smith from membership,” the letter reads. “We were required to provide Mr. Smith notice 15 days prior to the board meeting at which such action might be taken, and also give him the opportunity to provide the board a written statement no less than five days prior to that meeting.

According to the letter, in gentle of Smith resigning from the Academy final Friday, “suspension or expulsion are not a risk and the legally prescribed timetable not applies.”

“It is in the perfect curiosity of all concerned for this to be dealt with in a well timed style,” Rubin wrote.

Smith slapped Rock after the comic and actor made a joke from the Oscars stage about Jada Pinkett Smith’s close-cropped hair.

“Jada I like you, ‘G.I. Jane 2,’ cannot wait to see it,” Rock said while presenting the award for best documentary.

Smith then walked on stage, struck Rock, walked back to his seat and yelled at the comic to “Keep my spouse’s title out of your f***ing mouth!”

Not long after, Smith won the best actor Oscar for his role in the film “King Richard.”
