After Will Smith smacked Chris Rock at the Oscars, Lupita Nyong'o was aware that she would become a meme.

The Hollywood Reporter questioned the Black Panther actor about how she felt as the drama gained popularity second by second.

"After it was over, I thought, "Oh my God, there's no way all this happened and I'm not in the shot," Nyong'o laughed.

She said, “as soon as it was finished, I realized I would become a meme.”
