Jenn Chia Parodies Will Smith’s Slapping Incident After Being Called Shortjessie tan
The internet was abuzz this morning thanks to Will Smith’s ‘performance’ during the Oscar Awards. Apparently, the famous actor had gotten up mid-show to slap comedian Chris Rock for joking about his wife, Jada Smith.
Local YouTuber Jenn Chia was inspired by the incident but felt she would be unable to live up to Will’s actions. Two words explained her reasoning: “too short”. The YouTuber herself even helpfully included a short video showing why.
Jenn stated watching Will lose his temper had made her wonder if she would ever be able to do something similar. “Then I realised, I can never do what Will Smith did even if I was angry because…” she wrote and let her video do the speaking for her.
Fellow friend and YouTuber Joseph Lee walked into the room and made fun of Jenn. When she tried to retaliate with violence, Joseph simply held her at bay with one hand on her head. Jenn’s punches and kicks failed to reach her taller-by-one-head friend.
Jenn even shouted a parody of Will’s earlier outburst of “Keep my wife’s name out of your f***ing mouth!” by saying: “Get your hands off my f***ing head!” Joseph played along with his own twist on Chris’s statement after the incident, “That was the greatest night in the history of television,” with: “This may be the most historical moment of Malaysian Instagram.”
Needless to say, everyone found it adorable. “Standing next to this freakshow is humiliating,” Jenn sighed in another story. She then challenged netizens to make memes out of her mini video and even gave an example of one. Of course, eager fans rose to the challenge, especially after Jenn promised to post the best ones.
Here are some of those she found funny and relatable:
Her parody of the incident certainly had netizens laughing and relating to being called short! It’s definitely a sweet twist on such a surprising incident.
