Chris Rock's joke about Jada Pinkett Smith did not go down well with Will Smith. The comedian, who was on stage to give the Oscar for the best documentary, was subjected to a surreal slap in the face by The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air, in front of an audience of totally stunned stars. It was an improbable scene for such a prestigious and globally anticipated ceremony, and one which inevitably flooded Twitter with all kinds of memes.

On social networks, memes inundated the web, comparing Will Smith's slap to the famous meme of Batman slapping Robin. And the reactions of Lupita Nyong'o and Nicole Kidman drew much response from internet users. On Twitter, users used the #whatjusthappened hashtag to react to this historic moment, bringing together the most popular memes on the platform. – AFP Relaxnews
