A 7-minute-long clip of Margot Robbie and Will Smith hanging out with Suicide Squad co-stars and friends has received significant backlash on Reddit. In the concerned video, the “Men in Black” star showed his buddies an explicit, deep fake photo of Robbie.
Even since the video went viral, netizens have turned enraged and continuously added their take on the action.
By now, nearly 1000 comments are piled up under the disgusting post that was uploaded on the Public Freakout Reddit page today by an anonymous user named, u/Actuals.
The post amassed the attention of thousands within just a few hours, and currently, Smith is being questioned regarding how he treats women.
In the short clip, the Grammy winner could be seen inviting the attention of his pals to a deep fake of the actress. Robbie is also on the scene but in a compromised position. While Smith can be seen encouraging everyone to laugh at the picture on his phone, the “Wolf of Wall Street” actresses were seen attempting to diffuse the situation.
While no shocking reactions are seen on the faces of Smith’s friends, some people are undeniably disturbed by the content of the image, leading Reddit users to dub Smith a “hypocrite.”
Although many are still questioning the authenticity of the video, the netizens have labeled him “inappropriate,” and they do not seem very pleased with Smith for putting his co-star in such an awkward situation.
Smith already has a negative figure after his Oscar fiasco where he slapped comedian Chris Rock for making fun of his wife, Jada Pinkett’s appearance, despite knowing the fact that Mrs. Smith was diagnosed with alopecia.
While the former incident implied that Smith respected women, the latter simply dismissed the thought. Now, the netizens are expecting him to be a little respectful towards all women, be it his wife, or someone else’s.
Several platform users have raised their eyebrows toward Smith. A few reactions on Reddit notched enough traction as they criticized the 54-year-old in a public social media outlet.
“I’m curious to know what Smith would have done if it was a fake of his wife,” one user said, while another chimed in, “Not just him, but his entire family is insufferable.”
There are also several Reddit users who find it funny that superstars like Will Smith and Margit Robbie are among those who laugh off things that are unimportant. While not many find it a big deal others are constantly dragging the issue with the previous one that involved Smith’s wife.
However, Reddit has left a tizzy at the moment. In response to the video, Smith and his co-stars are receiving disgust in return for their alleged action.
While the comedian cum actor is accused of disrespecting Robbie, the two sparked rumors regarding their extramarital affairs in 2013. Star magazine accused Smith of cheating on Jada after a cold picture of the duo sharing a cozy moment with each other swirled on the internet.
“Will (Smith) appears shirtless while Margot reveals her lingerie” to him, wrote the publication under the viral click. An unknown source further added that the duo went to their wildest reality swiftly after the curtain was pulled, “hugging, laughing and muzzling” with each other.
However, the rumors were quickly dismissed and it was revealed that the shot was pre-planned and the entire cast and crew were well aware of it, concluding that Smith and Robbie were nothing more than good friends.
