Why Is Jason Derulo Trending After Met Gala 2021? Hilarious Memes Spread on Social Media
The memes from the Met Gala 2021 have quickly taken over Twitter just like every year as Jason Derulo "came back" on one of the most significant red carpet events in Hollywood.
Kim Kardashian, Addison Rae, Kendall Jenner, Justin and Hailey Bieber, and even Rihanna, visited this year's occasion. Other than them, many celebrities walked on the red carpet of the Metropolitan Museum of Art with their stunning dresses and suits, which fit the themes of "American identity" in fashion.
Even though no Jason Derulo was spotted in this year's event, he still made it in the trending list as a photo of an unknown man mistaken to be him fell down the stairs, according to Know Your Meme's official website. They also reported that the meme had resurfaced on social media platforms for every major red carpet event, even though it was not him.
The Not-Jason Derulo
As said by the meme website, it was May 2015 when the first instance of the picture was misidentified as Derulo. The site also provided information regarding the photo, which happened in 2011 at the Cannes Film Festival in France. The man in the white suit reportedly got caught on camera as he tried to gatecrash the event.
As Newsweek claimed, Twitter user @dashausofjack used the photo for the first time and tweeted, "Want You To Want Me" singer, "Jason Derulo just fell at #MetGala. LMAO." And, of course, the tweet spread like wildfire.
The singer got informed about the meme, and he clarified that he was in a rehearsal.
Back in 2015, Jason revealed that it was funny as well as his family got concerned, "I was actually in rehearsals in L.A. The Met Gala was actually in New York... and I just thought it was hilarious." He said, "My grandmother, she's 93-years-old, she called me. She's like 'Are you alright? I heard you fell down the stairs.' I was like 'Grandma, I'm good. I ain't fall down no stairs.'"
It is not the first time the picture has gone viral. It has been shared during the red carpet of the Oscars, Golden Globes, and the Met Gala, taking note that Jason has never attended The Met Gala in all these years.
