Will Smith Slaps Male Reporter on Red Carpet After He Kisses Actor's Cheek (PHOTO)

Will Smith Slaps Reporter on Red Carpet at Men In Black 3 Premiere

One reporter got too close for comfort as far as Will Smith was concerned.

While at a premiere in Moscow, Russia to promote the latest Men In Black sequel, a reporter on the red carpet repeatedly kissed the actor, 43, on the cheek which caught him off guard.  Will pushed off the man, and then backhanded him before moving on down the red carpet.

After the slap, the actor moved on to the next media outlet, explaining his actions:

"Hey! Sorry, he tried to kiss me on my mouth."
Still a bit angry, Will said he would have "sucker punched him." He then realized what he said, adding, "Sorry, I said that on camera. ... It's all good."

What do you think? Did Will have the right to act the way he did, or did he go overboard by smacking the guy?

    As much as you(media) try to call him gay and having a bromance with his lifelong friend; I don,t see now how you guys are trying to say he overreacted in this incident with the Ukranian reporter.I guess he's damned if he or damned if he don't.Never forget this guy (Will) played Mohammed Ali and if he wanted to he could have knocked that reporter's block clean off.Where was his security any way? Those guys should be fired immediately!

    Just because it was a 'kiss' doesn't mean it wasn't a personal attack and just because Will Smith is a celebrity doesn't give anyone the right to touch him without his permission. That could be considered an assault in some places. People need to respect other people's right to be unmolested and bombarded in public. This thing with the paparazzi shamelessly chasing people around, crowding them, and being a general nuisance is out of control. The law needs to start protecting celebrities and others instead of the picture hounds. They have rights too but they seem to be forgotten because "they chose to be in the public eye". They didn't give up their rights which includes their safety just like any one else. I say the picture hounds need to stay 25 ft or more away, with the camera's some of them have now days, that's close enough to still get a picture of an eyelash on someones face so they don't need to be any closer. And STOP hounding the small children of these celebrities, that's just sick. The children can't help it if their parents are famous, the are too small to understand this much less defend them selves too.

    I agree with you Demi regarding the homophobic issue that is going to arrise! If a woman were to do the same thing to a male reporter there would be no issue. This individual was invading another persons personal space. The reporter needs to behave with some manners. You don't just forcibly kiss anyone!

    I agree that Will Smith had every right to ensure that someone got out of his personal space. Nobody has the right to invade someones personal space and forcefully kiss them. If a man did this to a woman there would be no issue with the woman slapping the man. This reporter owes Will Smith an apology. Why on earth would he think that he could just kiss anyone? My goodness!

    I would of tried to take his head off for trying to kiss me in the mouth, trying to kiss me on the cheek can be understood by those of different cultures, this is the norm in some countries and cultures, but I don't think this guy was one of them? He looked like he expected worst and was glad that's all he got for his homo tendencies!

    really? at least he didnt knock his ass out. He carried himself pretty well after that, with continuing the interviews. Lets see how you would respond when someone tries to kiss you without your consent.

    If someone tried to kiss me in the mouth (male or female) without my consent, I probably would've slapped them, too. Well, I'd slap a male, but I'd probably just push a female. I feel like this is going to become an issue where ppl will call Will a homophobic. I support gays, and I wouldn't treat them differently from anyone else. Will is not homophobic. He's just asking for respect.
