Actors Will Smith and Chris Rock had a dust-up at the 2022 Oscars ceremony when Rock, who was presenting the next award, made a poor joke about Jada Pinkett Smith looking like GI Jane. Pinkett Smith suffers from alopecia, and her husband didn’t take kindly to the comment. As a result, we get this NSFW content.

It didn’t take long for the Internet to work its magic and find the perfect screenshot to go nuts with memes. Here are some of the best ones. By the way, the people at DraftKings Sportsbook have tabbed Smith as the favorite in a potential boxing match.

For those who were content to fire off jokes instead of build out memes, there was some quality content there too.

I appreciate that one side of Twitter is just laughing at how wild that moment was, and the other is talking about assault and taking it into the legal system— Zito (@_Zeets) March 28, 2022
