Will Smith's Slap Sparked Memes, And Here Are 24 Of The Funniest

The night of the Oscars is undoubtedly the most-watched ceremony by film enthusiasts from all over the world and every year, it always gives us a memorable show. This year, however, reality has surpassed fiction. In fact, we have witnessed a moment that will undoubtedly go down in history: the slap in the face of Will Smith (later awarded as Best Actor) to Chris Rock.
It all started with the arrival on stage of Chris Rock, who went up to present the winner for the Best Documentary Feature category and launched a few jokes about those present in the room. After joking with Javier Bardem and Penélope Cruz, both Oscar nominees, the American comedian made a joke about the haircut of Will Smith's wife Jada Pinkett Smith, saying “Jada, I love you. GI Jane 2, can’t wait to see you”, referring to the movie G.I. Jane in which the protagonist sports a buzz cut. Unfortunately, the actress's extremely short hair is linked to the battle she is fighting against alopecia, diagnosed in 2018.
Even though Smith did apologize shortly afterward, the damage is still there. His action already stirred up the internet and as usual, we have a good set of memes to burst out laughing after the accident. Here are the 24 ones we find most hilarious so far, let's scroll down and enjoy!
