The Brief: Will Smith's facial expressions from a "Red Table Talk" interview with his wife Jada Pinkett Smith have inspired a reaction meme format.
Sad/tired Will Smith memes originated from a “Red Table Talk” interview between Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith in which the couple clarified rumors about their marriage and Jada talked about a past relationship with singer August Alsina.
Will & Jada’s Red Table Talk
After August Alsina made public comments about a relationship between him and Jada Pinkett Smith that occurred during her marriage with Will Smith, rumors started flying. On Friday, July 10, 2020, Jada and Will had a conversation about it on Jada’s Facebook show “Red Table Talk.”
The episode featured a candid and at times emotional conversation between Will and Jada where they clarified rumors about their marriage and discussed their commitment to each other. In the interview, Jada said that during a period while she and Will were separated that she “got into an entanglement with August,” referring to a relationship between her and August Alsina.
On social media, the main takeaway from the interview was the confirmation that Jada had an extramarital affair. Fans of Will Smith and of the couple expressed their sadness that what many had previously viewed as an ideal marriage included separation and infidelity. Will Smith’s sad and tired facial expression has been widely memed, both as a representation of his emotions about his marriage and as a general reaction image.
