JR Smith responded to all the Rihanna gossip by posting a “Men in Black” meme to his Instagram account on Friday.
The meme shows Will Smith’s character in “Men in Black” holding up a neuralyzer, which is a tool he and Tommy Lee Jones’ character use in the movie series to erase the memory of subjects by flashing a light in their eyes.
Smith and Rihanna were rumored to be dating a year ago. The rumors flared up again last week after the two were photographed nearby each other at a club.
It’s not clear whether Smith meant he wanted to use a neuralyzer on Rihanna to erase her memory of their relationship, or on all the club-goers who have ratted him out for partying.
Rihanna responded to a fan on Thursday by saying Smith is performing poorly in the playoffs because he’s hungover from partying at clubs every night. Before the Knicks’ 85-75 Game 5 win over the Pacers, Smith dismissed the questions about Rihanna. He went 4-for-11 and had 13 points. He is shooting 29.3 percent for the series.
