Savage Will Smith Slaps Chris Rock Memes Flood Twitter & They Are Hilarious!

TheQuartering [3/28/2022]

According to TheNewYorkPost:

The “slap heard around the world” at Sunday’s Oscars ceremony involving Will Smith and Chris Rock onstage at the Dolby Theater has become meme-ified in a matter of mere hours.

The 94th Academy Awards had a particularly viral moment where Smith — who won later that evening the Oscar for Best Actor — went up onstage and smacked the soul out of Rock after the latter made an ill-advised hair joke about the winner’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith.

Just as Rock’s joke was being carried out to a shocked audience, Smith shouted at the presenter, “Keep my wife’s name out of your f–king mouth!”

But alas, despite that act of savagery being played out for millions of viewers to watch on Sunday evening, the Twitter world had its fill of memes about the trending moment.

Here are the best tweets and memes about the smackdown.

A shot of Oscar nominee Nicole Kidman made headlines, showing her shocked face during a separate segment on the show. While the Aussie actress wasn’t exactly showing her “surprised Pikachu face” to Smith and Rock’s altercation during the live telecast, Twitter decided to use the photo to describe the fight despite her expression happening well before the showdown.
