The Best Will Smith Oscars Memes

The 2022 Oscars winners list was announced overnight, not that you’d know. On a night marred by a strange slap from eventual Best Actor winner Will Smith, the film industry‘s biggest and brightest were honoured for their achievements over the past year. Truly, the 94th Academy Awards was a night to remember, perhaps for all the wrong reasons, but amidst the chaos, there was triumph. Apple TV+ feature CODA made history, becoming the streamer’s first-ever Best Picture winner and the first film with a predominantly deaf cast to win the accolade. But it all went out the window the moment Will Smith walked on stage.

The Slap Heard Round the World

The King Richard star shocked the world by slapping the living sh*t out of Chris Rock after the comedian and presenter made a joke at Jada Pinkett Smith’s expense, and from there, it all went downhill. Many are calling on the Academy to rescind Smith’s award and while deliberations look set to continue, the internet isn’t waiting around. Instagram, TikTok and Twitter have been flooded with an onslaught of Will Smith Oscars memes, highlighting the absolute lunacy of the slap and making light of a, frankly, bizarre situation.

Never in a million years could we have predicted the Will Smith meme avalanche that currently confronts us, but we aren’t complaining. Sure, we don’t condone violence in any way and Smith should be held accountable for his actions, but we can take a joke…unlike some people we know. Anyway, without further adieu, here are the best Will Smith Oscars memes to brighten your day and slap a smile onto your face.
