Twitter Expects ‘Emancipation’ to “Slap” as Will Smith’s New Movie Releases Its First Poster

There are some people in the world who are bound to break the stereotypes of established notions. They emerge from within with a spark in their soul to change the narration of their story, while they create their whole life with the spark turned into flames. Will Smith is one of those people who tried to break many stereotypes in his career. The American actor first came to be a rapper. He set the trend in hip-hop and became The Fresh Prince.

However, when he started out as a rapper, he didn’t rap about popular gangster stuff as other rappers did. He had his own style and music that he firmly believed in. Even in his book and his discussion with Oprah Winfrey, he talked about how he was not “Black enough.” However, because of the Oscar slap-gate, the actor’s career was in trouble. While Netflix seemed to be in negotiations with the King Richard star, his upcoming film has created a lot of movement on the internet.
