Jason Derulo has fallen down the stairs refers to a viral photograph of a man in a white suit tumbling headfirst down a flight of red stairs at the Cannes Film Festival in 2011. The man has not been identified, but many believe he resembles the singer Jason Derulo, which inspired many memes. This joke first started in 2015, when someone randomly decided that the man in the white suit looked like Jason and tweeted that he fell down the steps of Met Gala. The same joke was repeated at the Met Gala in 2018, in Golden Globes to the Grammys to even the 2020 Emmys. And now the US Presidential Inauguration.
