What the Will Smith slap tells us about the war in Ukraine



Everyone has been talking about Will Smith slapping Chris Rock at the Oscars, and before that loads of people have been talking about the Russian invasion of eastern Ukraine. 

In this article I'm going to explain what the Will Smith slap tells us about the war in Ukraine:

The Will Smith slap tells us absolutely nothing about the war in Ukraine.

It's got bollocks all to do with it, and this headline is obviously an April Fool's prank from a commentator you'd hopefully expect not to conflate two completely unrelated things for clicks (on any normal days of the year).

It's especially insulting to conflate completely unrelated things when one is a bit of Hollywood pantomime between two millionaire mates, and the other is a massive humanitarian tragedy, resulting in thousands of deaths, and millions of refugees.

Unfortunately there are people out there who are so desperate for clicks and attention that they'll do it in earnest.
