Before “The Slap” even premiered it was the butt of some very good jokes. But it turns out you are all secretly hate-watching it and coming up with STD puns. But there’s a lot to hate about the new NBC drama.
I kind of feel like #TheSlap could solve the liberal-conservative divide forever if we could just get enough people to watch it.

Like, really — how else but for the grace of Hollywood’s love affair with whiteness could a show like “The Slap” exist? — Saeed Jones (@theferocity) February 25, 2015
And its general lack of characters you’d want to grab a beer with:
A whole lot of people need to be slapped on #TheSlap. I feel like Cher should come on, slap folks and say “Snap out of it”

Then, there’s the fact that it feels so forced, and sounds like an STD:
Just got home and see that #TheSlap is trending. Didn’t watch. Thought it sounded more like a new STD than a TV show… Is that bad?

ABC saw promos for The Slap and was like “WE CAN ONE UP THIS, SOMEONE GET RYAN PHILLIPPE ON THE PHONE” — Robby Kalland (@RKalland) February 23, 2015
Watching episode 3 of The Slap. It feels like beating the hardest level so far on a video game.
