Will Smith Slaps Reporter Caught on Video
Will Smith was caught on video slapping a reporter during the premiere of his film ‘Men in Black III’ in Moscow, Russia.
Apparently, the said reporter was a male from the Ukrainian television channel 1+1 who approached Will Smith on the red carpet identified as Vitalii Sediuk.
Unfortunately, he got too close when he put his hand on the actor’s shoulder and tried to kiss him in the lips.
The move was part of the reporter’s schtick when interviewing celebrities but Will Smith did not like it.
“Come on, man, what the hell is your problem buddy?” Smith said after pushing the reporter away. He then slapped him lightly across his cheek with the back of his left hand.
“He’s lucky I didn’t sucker punch him,” said a laughing but surprised Smith.
Two women walking with him turned when they heard the slap, and Smith explained, “Sorry, he kissed me on my mouth!”
Everything was caught on a video by TMZ. Despite the event, Will stayed positive and continued to sign autographs for his fans.
