“The slap heard around the world” happened when actor Will Smith charged the stage at the 2022 Oscars and slapped the hired emcee of the event, Chris Rock, in response to a joke he found distasteful regarding his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith.
Regardless of what you think about his assault on Chris Rock, the aftermath of this interaction is undeniable. The steady stream of memes, jokes, and water cooler conversation happening around America undoubtedly makes the sexuality of the Smiths part of the referendum on Will Smith’s behavior. Making jokes about other’s sexuality has been frowned upon for ages…why is ok all of the sudden to mock swingers?
Join Mickey & Mallory as we dig in on our own personal experiences with some of these jokes, how they made us feel, and how we think these things should be handled moving forward.
