Tony Awards Announces a Strict No Violence Policy

The Tony Awards has announced that, because of the Oscars, they now have a strict no-violence policy for this year’s show.

Likely, more, if not all of the academies which produce awards shows will follow suit.  The move toward clarity comes after Will Smith cold-hit Chris Rock across the face, on stage, during the Oscar Awards show.

The statement reads, “The Tony Awards has a strict no-violence policy.  In the event of an incident, the perpetrator will be removed from the event immediately.”

They also mention information about dress codes, COVID-19 policies, and non-transferable tickets.
