Pfizer sponsored the 2022 Oscars

The strange theory starts with Pfizer sponsoring the 2022 Oscars.

Pharmaceutical companies Pfizer and BioNTech, which joined forces two years ago to create a Covid-19 vaccine, have teamed up again to sponsor the famous Academy Awards.

A spokesman said Wild Pharma: “Pfizer and BioNTech are proud to support the Oscars, and we are thrilled that the film industry is gathering in person and alongside fans to celebrate the talent and artistry that has been produced over the past year.”

The US and German companies sponsored the event to celebrate their full return – the 2021 Oscars were a smaller than usual event because of the pandemic.

“The film industry has implemented vaccination, masking and other protocols designed to help prevent disease and avoid serious illness from Covid-19, and we look forward to working with them to further promote public health,” continued the speaker continues.

Conspiracy claims skewed to “alopecia drug” trials

This is where it gets interesting. Conspiracy theorists online claim Will Smith’s slap in the face was just a publicity stunt.

Pfizer is currently developing a drug to treat alopecia and other immune-inflammatory diseases. The drug, etrasimod, is a once-daily tablet that is being tested for the treatment of a number of conditions including ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, atopic dermatitis, eosinophilic esophagitis and alopecia areata.

Just days before the Oscars, Pfizer announced Phase 3 trials of the drug have been a great success.

Conspiracy theorists claim the slap was “staged”.

Amidst the sponsorship, drug trials and the fact that Jada Pinkett Smith has alopecia areata are conspiracy theorists claim Will Smith’s slap was staged.

Theorists claim the altercation was a publicity stunt to get people talking about alopecia ahead of etrasimod’s release.

Let’s be clear that there is no truth to these unsubstantiated claims and they remain within the realm of social media theory.

While the drug is being tested to treat alopecia areata, while targeting a number of other diseases and conditions, it is not actually an “alopecia drug.”

HITC has reached out to Pfizer and the Academy for comment.

While the allegations were unfounded, the unfounded theory certainly caused a stir on social media:
