‘The View’ Is Being Slammed For Dressing A Child Up As Will Smith Oscar Slap For Halloween

Uh-oh! Some fans of ‘The View‘ are crying “too soon!” after the daytime talk show dressed up a child as the Will Smith slap of Chris Rock at the Oscars.

During their special Halloween-themed episode, the show’s wardrobe supervisor, Ashley Alderfer Kaufman, introduced a round of costumes inspired by some of the best Hot Topics segments from the past year.

They covered everything from inflation to the Mar-a-Lago raid. But it was just the Will Smith slap costume that had everyone feeling some type of way.

The child sporting the outfit wore a gold costume that looked like the Oscar trophy and had a red handprint painted on the side of their face.

Kaufman introduced the costume by stating they don’t want to endorse violence of any kind, “but we couldn’t help but talk about one of the hottest topics of this year.”

The hosts of the show appeared to love the costume. You can see them laughing in the background. But Twitter was not laughing, which is not exactly surprising. Twitter doesn’t laugh at anything.


I don’t know, man. I feel like this costume was all in good fun, and at the end of the day, it was just a slap. I think Will Smith was a huge douche for doing what he did, and honestly it did make me lose a little respect for him.

But at the same time… it was a slap! It’s not like he pulled out a knife and stabbed Chris Rock in the chest. I think it’s okay to poke a little fun at a slap, especially a slap that happened seven or eight months ago.
