Reporter Kisses Will Smith And Gets Slapped In The Face (Video)

A Ukrainian reporter kissed Will Smith and got slapped in the face for his affection.  Apparently Will is a little too sensitive about those rumors that he is gay.  The hapless reporter tried to kiss Will on the mouth but Will turned cold on the dude and whacked him.

Was the reporter being friendly or obnoxious?  Apparently Will thought the Ukrainian was not being hospitable as his reaction on the video below shows.  The reporter has a reputation for kissing celebs – and now he’ll have a rep for getting slapped by Willy.

What’s wrong with Will anyway?  Is it all that CO$ he’s been inhaling?

TMZ reports:

Will Smith just slapped a Ukrainian reporter across the face at the Moscow premiere of “Men in Black 3” — and it was all caught on tape.

The Ukrainian reporter tries to kiss Will on the lips on the red carpet and the actor angrily pushes him away and then backhands him across the face.

You can clearly see that Will is incredibly pissed that the guy showed overt affection toward him.

After Will slaps the guy, Will says, “He’s lucky I didn’t sucker punch him.”

We’re told the dude who kissed Will is a television reporter who often kisses celebrities — it’s his schtick.

For the record, Will just came out in support of gay marriage.

A source on scene 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.

Hopefully the reporter will sue the rich pants off of Will.  There are concepts to apply in the case such as ‘justifiable force’ and ‘proportional response’ and Will overreacted in this instance.  Was he worried that the reporter would rape him?  Let us know what you think in the comments below.

  • Will Smith was in his rights there. He did exactly what anyone should and would have done.

    If someone tried to kiss u that u didn’t want especially if your a heterosexual man you don’t want any dude kissing you especially on tv. He should have knocked him out. I would have.

    Will Smith was completely out of line.  It’s not a gay issue.  It’s european tradition and nothing more.  When you’re a high profile celebrity like Will Smith acknowledging your fan base in a respectful manner is a must.  I think less of Will for his over reacting to a nice guy.

      wrong ,you could see Will struggling against it.Very uncalled for.You dont kiss a man on the mouth????Where,what country?????

  • Doug Keister

    even more than its wills job to study the local culture its the reporters job to study ours.  will is a guest there.  when i have a guest over to my home i treat them as they would appreciate being treated.  that reporter knows its not our culture to kiss at all let alone on the mouth.  this is obviously his thing for publicity and was very disrespectful to will and should lose his job for it.  if i were in that situation i probably wouldnt have hit him but i would have followed up with his boss and made sure he was reprimanded for his behavior.  i would have certainly pushed him away much harder than will did.

    I don’t blame Will at all. I agree the dudes lucky he didn’t punch him.

  • Cali Girl

    Yay Will Smith!  If a guy I didn’t know did that to me, I’d have done the same – pushed him away and maybe slapped him.  The reporter deserves it! 

  • hahah thats funny :)
