Will Smith slapping Chris Rock at Sunday’s Academy Awards is certainly a pop culture moment that won’t soon be forgotten.
The Oscars incident was an instant classic in the social media meme department, and one NBA fan even wore a shirt — proudly! — with a photo of the slap to Monday night’s Houston Rockets game against the San Antonio Spurs at the Toyota Center.
