After the slap on Chris Rock during the Oscars 2022, Will Smith has lost popularity among 

Americans. This is what a survey by Q Scores - a platform known for showing the power and reach of celebrities - indicates for "Variety" magazine.

According to the data, Smith's rating was "significantly impacted" by the slap on Rock during the film awards ceremony, broadcast live on TV.

Before taking the stage to receive the best actor award for his role in "King Richard," Will Smith

took offense to a joke made by host Chris Rock about the hair of Jada Pinkett Smith, who suffers from alopecia.

The Q Scores survey is conducted twice a year with about 1,800 American consumers and shows their perception and feelings about celebrities.

Will Smith, who has always been among the highest rated over the past few years

lost scores and went from 39 to 24 - the number indicates the percentage of respondents who considered the actor as one of their favorite personalities.

To "Variety," Q Score's executive vice president Hnery Schafer said that the drop shows a "very significant and precipitous decline" of Will in the ranking.

Will Smith's wife Jada was also affected, with her positive score dropping from 13 to six.

In late July, the actor posted a video apologizing for his behavior saying that it was "unacceptable" what he did.
