Anime Community Reacts to Will Smith Slapping Chris Rock with Memes

During the Oscar ceremony, the globe witnessed a disturbing scene in which the world-renowned actor, Will Smith, slapped a fellow comic, Chris Rock.

Chris Rock appeared on stage at the Oscars to award Best Documentary, and as a stand-up comic, he joked about Jada Pinkett Smith’s hair cut, stating he was looking forward to seeing her in G.I. Jane II (referring to Demi Moore’s buzzcut in the 1997 film G.I. Jane). Keep in mind that Jada Smith has spoken out about her experience with alopecia.

Jada Smith frowned when she heard the joke and rolled her eyes. Will Smith was spotted chuckling at the joke, but after a brief pause, he walked to the stage and slapped Rock. Smith immediately returned to his seat, saying, “Keep my wife’s name out of your fu-king lips.”


Later that evening, Smith was awarded the Academy Award for his portrayal of Richard Williams in King Richard. Smith apologised to the Academy and his fellow nominees in his acceptance speech. The incident sparked a firestorm on Twitter, and anime fans were eager to respond with memes.




Even Viz media official Twitter account was making fun of the situation:
