Will Smith Slaps Male Reporter for Trying to Kiss Him

Will Smith Slaps Male Reporter for Trying to Kiss Him

Will Smith attends a photo call for Men in Black 3 on the roof of the Ritz-Carlton on Friday (May 18) in Moscow, Russia.

Later in the evening, the 43-year-old actor attended the film’s premiere where he encountered an overly-friendly male Ukrainian reporter who tried to kiss Will on the lips.

“What the hell is your problem?” Will asks the guy before giving him a little slap across the face.

A source tells TMZ “the reporter’s mouth brushed up against Will‘s and that’s why the actor reacted so violently. Despite the incident, Will stayed positive … and happily continued to sign autographs for fans and do red carpet interviews.”

Also pictured inside: Will meeting with Olympic hopefuls on Wednesday (May 16) in London before the Men in Black 3 UK premiere.

    That reporter was inappropriate and I don’t blame Will for his reaction. I don’t understand people who don’t respect or are tone deaf to personal boundaries.

    I saw the video, maybe it was a bad angle but it looked like he was giving him a kiss on each cheek, which even guys do to each other in that part of the world as a sign of friendship.

    The guy’s name is Vitalii Sediuk. He was the same one that set up the Madonna incident with the Hydranges. He pranks celebrities so he knows what to expect. Will was right to lite-slap him!

    I’m not a fan of the way he’s shoving his kids down our throats lately, but I’ve had a soft spot for him ever since the Fresh Prince. Plus he’s sexy.

    Feeling Lucky Says:

    @Panda: I too think that he is sexy ;)

    I don’t blame Will for slapping him one bit! You do not encroach on one’s personal space!

    hap Says:

    Slapping is fine, but to all those encouraging Will to slap him in the face, get a grip. The media would’ve have turned against Will Smith in a second, accusing him of being a homophobe in need of anger management, not to mention the assault/hate crime charges.
    What he did was totally reasonable, and it’s good to see him keep a lid on his temper.

    one Says:

    noone has the right to accuse him of being a homophobe, thats not fair, he’s not comfortable with another man kissing him even on the cheek, then thats his right, he should sucker punched him.

    I can’t wait for all of the “WILL SMITH HATES GAYS” posts that are going to evolve from this.
