Actor Will Smith gave up acting and is now a SlapFIGHT professional. This sudden turn in Mr. Smith’s career is partly due to his 10-year ban from attending the Academy Awards. Although he officially said he regrets slapping comedian Chris Rock in front of millions, his latest move to join the SlapFight Championship is raising more questions than answers.
What is Slap Fighting?
No one is sure when the first official slap fight occurred. Archaeologists discovered cave paintings in France that shows two figures slapping the intelligence out of each other. Clay tablets from Ancient Mesopotamia tell of aristocratic youth taking turns slapping each other to show off their toxic masculinity. In modern times, middle school gym classes were the home of slap fighting.
The SlapFIGHT Championship took the hallowed tradition and popularized it. A recent slap fight featured hosts Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jake Paul. SlapFIGHT features fighters with names like Da Crazy Hawaiian, Dudzio, and Solid Slug.
