Will Smith's reputation is not good at all four months after the striking slap the actor gave Chris Rock in the face
during this year's Academy Awards ceremony. Before the incident, Smith was consistently among the top five or 10
highest-rated actors in the Q Scores survey in the United States, ahead of
Tom Hanks and Denzel Washington, Henry Shafer, vice president of Q Scores, told Variety magazine.
In July, Smith's ratings plummeted from 39 to 24. Chris Rock's public awareness rating, on the other hand, rose
from 66 to 84. Will Smith's negative rating doubled, from less than 10 to 26. Jada Pinkett
Smith, the actor's wife, also suffered damage to her image. Her positive rating dropped from 13 to six, and her negative rating jumped from 29 to 44.
Rock was attacked after making a joke about the shaved head of Jada, who has alopecia, a disease that causes hair loss.
A few weeks ago, Will Smith posted a video in which he commented on the case and apologized to Rock. "I want to speak .
to you, Chris, I apologize to you. My behavior was unacceptable and I'm here to talk when you're ready," the actor says
