Was Will Smith The Original Manspreader During His ‘Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air’ Days?


Fresh Prince of Bel-Air

The phenomenon of “manspreading” is a hot-button topic on the Internet days. If you’re not familiar, David wrote an explanation of what exactly the crusade against so-called “manspreading” is all about. But this afternoon I had a revelation when these picture showed up on my Twitter timeline.

When historians look back and try to track the origins of manspreading, they should trace it back to Will Smith in Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Look at that manspreading! Look at how at easy he is just letting the boys be boys. Dating back to the early 1990s, this is one of the first major, documented pop culture moments in manspreading history, leading to the epidemic to catch on to public transit riders all around the world.

Manspreading is Will Smith’s fault. I hope you channel your outrage into a form of actionable protest, like not seeing Bad Boys 3 at the box office.

Actually, just take a solemn vow to never watch After Earth. That will hit Will Smith and his manspreading entitlement where it hurts. Bad Boys 3 is going to be the shit.
