Sexual harassment is sexual harassment whether you're a public figure or just a waitress.

I was working as a breakfast waitress at a resort hotel on Maui. I asked a couple of rich Arab men, after delivering their food, "Can I do anything else for you?"

The guy answers "Yeah, you can let me eat you ^&%ssy." I slapped him across his bearded sweaty face so hard and fast, neither one of us knew what happened!


Never got in trouble for that either.

Will Smith is cool, he has the attitude of a down to earth type of guy who loves his kids very much and you can see that by the way he presents himself. That guy was totally out of line. Will kept his cool because he could of easily brawled it out with the guy in a flat second.

Go Will!!!!!!!!

Funny video yes but was it appropriate to respond like that with a hard slap ? no


That was a hard slap? What the hell do you consider a soft slap? It was just a tap, and Will Smith is MARRIED. I don't know about you, but if my wife was a celebrity, I don't care what gender, male or female, if they try to show affection to her by kissing, she'd do a whole lot worse than slapping.

And seriously? Considering Will Smith homophobic?

That's like if a dog starts humping a girl, and she pushes him away. She's Zoophobic?
Seriously?

I guess next time will Smith should just stand there and make out with him.

I respect how he treated that to be honest; most guys would rightfully give him a good punch.

Guys, I've said it before and I'll say it again. Every time an incident like this happens with a celebrity, they have a book or movie coming out. Same with a singer. This is how celebs advertise. I've said this in many posts from the past. This always happens.

Next time something happens with a celeb, rather it's something like this, something charitable, or anything that garners attention and puts the spotlight on them, stop and think, "what have they done lately or what is about to be released". 99% of the time you will notice they have a movie (in this case, M.I.B. III) or book or album soon to be released. Happens every time like clockwork.

Not really!

lol!

the worst was we had an nfl team stay there during training season for a few years. That was the worst. They would ASSUME any of the female staff would come to the room with them, for free. And most of them second or third string.

We hated it when they were there.

it is not his job to retaliate especially not at a premiere .


No man has the right to go up to another man and kiss him on the mouth.

Will Smith should have slapped him much harder.


NO .. not at a premiere ..this is what some of you dont understant
he was not in the street doing his personal things ..
the push was enought .. but slaping a fan like that in front of millions of fans
not appropriate

Maybe..hopefully, it will teach the "FANS' they have no right grabbing and groping at someone just because they act in movies! Some have even pulled off clothes and cut locks of hair...I am stunned you feel as you do, these are people, so what if they have job that makes them public we don't own them, let us see how a politician would handle this.

This is how politicians handle such encounters.


A chance encounter with Vice President Dick Cheney at a shopping center in Colorado allowed Steven Howards to express his disgust with the Iraq war and touch Cheney on the shoulder. It also led to Howards' arrest by Secret Service agents.

LOL at the people trying to strengthen their anti-will smith argument by calling it a punch.
He just had to run his knuckles across the reporters face to remind him of a thing called personal space.

If anything, his fan base will applaud this act.
I'm glad to see ATS mostly coming down on the right side of the issue.

Also, what sort of man goes around trying to kiss male celebs on the mouth? Just... just stop.

So if I smacked you like that, would it just be a tap and no big deal?

First off, not going to lie, this video made my day! I love Will Smith, and how he handled it. If you want to get technical the Reporter could have gotten in a lot of trouble for sexually harrassing him. He literally had to fight to get out of his arms. And also to be honest, Will did a lot less than any other man or women could or would have, I would have decked him. I feel he was very nice about it, and that it was still very strange for the man to try and kiss Will Smith all over his face? Creeepy! Funny Video though!

Will and Jada have put a LOT of work, effort and sacrifice into hiding their sexuality for the sake of their careers. I can't blame him for having a bad reaction to anything that might threaten that image. Gay or straight, that would make anyone uncomfortable - and it's obvious from the video that he ramped up his response as the reporter didn't immediately get it that he needed to back the hell off. Wish these two would just come out, but they have a million reasons not to...

I think he was entirely within his right to do it. If it was me the guy probably would have gotten it harder.
I think he actually showed restraint.

So it means your homophobic if I don't want a guy to kiss me on the mouth?!!? That's insane....

He was willing to get close and greet the guy he just wasn't cool with a kiss on the mouth.

FairPlay to Will Smith for this...guy was lucky was just a backhander.
What the man was thinking is beyond me? Tried that and 9 out of 10 blokes might have just punched him.
As others have said, if he tried to kiss Angelina Jolie on the mouth, and got a beat down from security it would be fair game.
Nothing homphobic about it at all! To avoid being labelled homophobic do you actually have to become homosexual now?

I'm a will smith fan - and I applaud him for this. Always comes across pretty well in interviews etc...and makes a good film too.

He was well within his rights to do what he did.Most men would've knocked him out while Will barely slapped the guy.Not an overeaction at all.As others have said if it had been a female he tried it on he'd have been locked up and charged with something.Forget that he's famous,you just don't approach a random stranger and try to kiss them.

I don't think he kissed him on the mouth, but I still agree with your statement. I don't know what the customs of the culture are in Moscow but there are a LOT of cultures who greet with a kiss on both cheeks, which is what it looked to me like he was doing. I think he could have handled himself a little better though.


That's exactly what I thought. I'm pretty sure the kiss on both cheeks is a Russian thing and Big Willy just way over reacted. And for what it's worth, he looked and sounded a tad jet lagged or drunk to me.
