Will Smith released an apology to Chris Rock in the form of a video on July 29 for the infamous Oscar slap that happened earlier this year. The former has been out of the public eye for a few months, but they’ve reappeared recently. Since the video was uploaded to YouTube yesterday, many netizens have left positive user comments, praising him for the sincerity of his apologies.
Some of Erobb221’s followers have also commented on CLM below the video in an effort to jokingly show their support for the actor who plays King Richard. A person considered vulnerable is referred to as CLM.
Will Smith revealed in his video, which at the time of writing this story has had over 1.7 million views on YouTube, that Chris Rock refused to speak to him after he reached out to him. He said:
The 53-year-old actor also expressed his condolences to Chris Rock’s mother and brother, saying:
The actor also gave an explanation as to why he didn’t apologize to Chris Rock during his acceptance speech for his Best Actor win, admitting that he “was messed up at that point.” The actor was speaking as the winner of the Best Actor award.
Smith went on to apologize to his family for making a scene, as well as to the other candidates for ruining “Your Moment.” He said he was sorry for both.
Why is ‘CLM’ flooding Will Smith’s comment section?
I just watched the video of Will Smith apologizing, and the entire comment section was filled with the hashtag #CLM.
The acronym “CLM” has taken over the comment box under Will Smith’s video, causing many users on the Internet to be confused. Several notes were read online as follows:
When broken down into its full form, the acronym “CLM” stands for “Cucks Lives Matter” movement.
The term “cuck” refers to a weak man, and when people commented on “CLM” they were urging other netizens to support Will Smith despite the fact that he had a moment of weakness on stage during the Oscars.
Netizens who have used the language may also say that the actor is a coward for having to resort to extreme measures because his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, was not happy with the joke.
Erobb221, a popular streamer on Twitch, uses the phrase “CLM” in almost all of his broadcasts. The internet personality is best known for broadcasting her games for PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds and League of Legends. In 2014, he created his personal account on the platform.
Since graduating from Culver-Stockton College with a degree in Sports Management, the 26-year-old has established himself as a popular streamer on Twitch. On Twitch, the Missouri native has gained over 387,059 followers, and his streams have been viewed over 11.6 million times.
