”Will Smith’s Oscars slap traumatized y’all but you watched Dahmer Series multiple times?”: Will Smith Fans Cry Hypocrisy, Claim Hollywood Was Unfair To Him

Will Smith Oscar Slap and Jeffrey Dahmer

Two wrongs don’t make a right, and just like that two notorious celebrities don’t result in anything good. Netflix’s newest limited-run series based on Jeffrey Dahmer’s life and killings have been the subject of comparison to Will Smith’s controversial slap at the Oscars earlier this year.

Much like Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story, Smith slapping comedian Chris Rock over a joke on his wife’s alopecia condition has set a precedent that celebrities can get away with anything. This speaks in greater volumes for Jeffrey Dahmer, who, although deceased has a section of the internet rooting for him despite being a serial killer, and it’s all kind of sickening.

Will Smith Fans Say Jeffrey Dahmer Fans Are Hypocritic

Will Smith‘s outburst, which was verbal and physical, toward comedian and host of the 2022 Oscars event Chris Rock spawned a series of memes based around Smith that ridiculed his actions as well as poked fun at the whole incident.

However, most of the following feedback on the incident was negative with many blaming Smith for the unnecessary use of force on Chris Rock. The incident has had major complications for his image as a sweet family man, even his peers (most from Hollywood) judged his actions.

It’s been 6 months ever since we heard those now-famous words from Smith’s mouth, and the whole debacle has been brought back into relevance because of the new Jeffrey Dahmer TV series.

A section of Twitter fans who are in defense of Will Smith’s actions has said the hypocrisy of people being angry over Smith’s actions, but happily enjoying Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story is very telling-

This user agrees too-

In full support! –

She said it-

Dahmer fans watched it more than once, yikes-

Now you can either support a person who lost his cool at a public event over an insensitive joke about his wife, or you can join the side that’s buying memorabilia of a serial killer like it’s an art collection.

Will Smith’s Emancipation To Compete For The Oscars

It’s been quite the year for Will Smith, with a large chunk of it going toward recovering from public backlash over the Oscar mess that he was a perpetrator of.

But the 54-year-old actor is now back on track in his career as he is all set to star in Emancipation, his first major movie ever since the Oscar confrontation with Chris Rock took place.

Emancipation is an upcoming historical thriller directed by Antoine Fuqua. The movie is based on the true story of “Whipped Peter”, as it follows Will Smith as Peter, a plantation slave who is on the run to join the Union Army in the North.

In an interesting turn of events, however, Smith is set to be contesting for the Best Actor award at the Oscars ceremony yet again, despite having already won it last year for King Richard, which was pretty awkward after the slap.

It is still important to note that Smith has been barred by the Academy from attending any of its events for ten-long years, but will still be competing for the Best Actor award with other favorites like Colin Farrell for The Banshees of Inisherin and Brendan Fraser for The Whale.

Emancipation is scheduled for a theatrical release in limited theaters on December 2, 2022. Before moving to an Apple TV+ release on December 9.
