Warning: Mega Viral Photo of Hollywood Actors Watching in “Horror” As Will Smith Slaps Chris Rock is Fake

Hollywood was shocked by the “slap” heard ’round the world when Will Smith walked on stage and slapped Chris Rock’s face after he made a joke about Jada Pinkett Smith’s buzz haircut.


Will Smith’s wife has Alopecia, a disease that causes hair loss, and Chris Rock made a joke about it, and called her “GI Jane.”

Here’s the viral photo:


Yes, these actors are all shocked, but this photo is actually from 2017 when the wrong “best picture” was announced:

It was the gasp heard ’round the world: a sharp, near-simultaneous intake of breath from the audience at the Dolby Theatre after La La Land producer Jordan Horowitz stopped his colleagues’ acceptance speeches to make this announcement: “There’s a mistake. Moonlight, you guys won Best Picture.”


This is the moment when it happened:

And here’s the crowd photo:

If the Will Smith/Chris Rock slap was real, I am sure we’ll see actual looks of horror from the audience, not fake images from 2017.
