Will Smith’s slap incident at the Oscars 2022 has had a huge impact on the actor’s career. Not only has he been banned from the Oscars for a decade, but according to several reports, many of his projects have also been put on hold. Things seem grim for the actor who won his first Academy Award on the night of the infamous incident involving Chris Rock. Due to this, fans of the popular Bad Boys series believe that the film’s fourth installment is likely to come to an end. However, Martin Lawrence recently revealed that this might not be the case.

Talking about the first film, Martin Lawrence stated,

“It was big. For us to come together and prove that we can deliver, and we can pull people into the box office — that two Black stars, two sitcom stars, could make money at the box office [was huge].”

The actor also talked about how the movie affected his personal life.

“I didn’t go to college, so I felt TV was my college years. I felt with movies, I had graduated; it was just different.”
