Hollywood star Will Smith thinks memes about the Genie in 'Aladdin' are "very funny".
The 50-year-old actor has assumed the role of the lamp-dweller in Guy Ritchie's upcoming live-action film and the first look at the character arrived in a teaser trailer in February, causing the internet to respond with a slew of funny posts about Will's blue alter-ego.
However, the Hollywood star admitted that he wasn't offended by the memes and although he's still trying to "get a handle on" internet culture, he enjoyed the comedic posts.
In an interview with Empire, he said: "It was very funny. There was a Sonic The Hedgehog / Genie frog.
"Everything is under such critical scrutiny. I came up in an era where there was no internet. It's a new thing that I'm trying to get a handle on."
