Will Smith Comments On Smacking Reporter On Red Carpet

UPDATE: In a new interview with David Letterman, Will Smith explains why he lightly-smacked Vitalii Sediuk for an unwanted gesture.

Emcee-turned-actor Will Smith (f/k/a The Fresh Prince) is presently on a press campaign for the third film in the Men In Black franchise. During a Moscow, Russia red carpet gala this week, the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania native was unexpectedly kissed on the mouth by Ukrainian prankster-reporter Vitalii Sediuk. Smith reacted with by shoving Sediuk, asking, "Come on, man. What the hell is your problem?" followed by a small smack on the man's face.

TMZ.com has video footage of the event posted below, where Smith explains his actions moments later. "He's lucky I didn't sucker-punch him. Oops, sorry, I said that on camera," Smith said with a smile.

(May 20)

UPDATE: In an interview with Late Show host David Letterman, Will Smith addressed this weekend's kiss-turned-slap. "It's just awkward, Dave!" said Will, playing to the a laughing audience. Smith explained that Vitalii Sediuk's camp apologized to the actor, saying, "'Oh no, no. We're sorry. It's just his shtick.'," according to Will. "And I said, 'Well, that's why his ass got schtuck.'"

    Stay out of ppl bedrooms, nobody business but those involved in the sex. It doesn't matter what Will likes, Unwarraned kissing or touching gets you SLAPPED UP! PERIOD! Unless its from Nicki Minaj, Journee Smollet, Rita Ora, or Serena Williams.

    This couldn't come at a better time for Will, since his freaky sex life is all over the internet these days.

    • ASEE

      dude fuck off with that troll-bate shit

  • Dave

    the guy was aggresively kissing him and deliberately moving to the area of the mouth. not the way to greet someone for the first time.will reaction was justified. and what's funny is if he didnt react, the same people saying he is homophobic would be calling him a homo if he just let him kiss him. Truth is, you just want this nigga to lose. no matter his reaction, you would have put a negative spin on it to try and assassinate his character. he defends himself, you call him a closet gay overreaction, he doesnt react, you call him an open gay. this is why black people dont succeed half as much as they could. they are constantly held back by their own. and secondly @ you niggas trying to twist duhforreals words trying to make him seem gay. If a random person, man or woman, tries to kiss me without knowing about it, I would be offended too. whether male or female... being violated is still violation. you homophobic niggas are so insecure and thirsty that you feel like you got to prove to everybody that you like women the most. you the same type of niggas that assume that every gay person wants to sleep with every guy they meet. And any guy that does not want to fuck every girl he meets must be gay. not every nigga is so thirsty that he'll fuck anything with a hole. not everyone nigga is shallow and thirsty and accept pussy on a first come first serve basis. most niggas have self respect and are secure enough that they aint gotta prove to their peers that they aint gay. only niggas with demons gotta show the world that they aint think about men 24/7. what funny is you homophobic thirst niggas are the ones that get the least amount of pussy because you got no sense of game, appeal, or self assurance. you just worried that niggas will call you gay.

  • NV80

    In response to Anonymous... I have black friends that embrace so many others cultures including mine. They are so intrigued of the fact of how we help our community grow and do things for one another... You go ask your fellow brother in your community to loan you a dollar then come back to me and tell me what he says... Douche bag reality is your community is weak because you do not look after each other from a financial perspective. And when someone in your community does something for themselves to move forward. While you sit back and sit around lazy being you are saying fuck that dude he is a sell out blah blah...Jealous of what the next brother has.. I am am not jealous if you get a job over me I am not jealous if you go to university and get a better grade then me..Means you worked for it. So shout your mouth and get a reality check....

    It is a respect sign shown in some culture. In the middle east they do three kisses each cheek. Europe a kiss on each cheek. African american sign of respect for each other jealousy of there fellow brother and try to put him down and shoot his ass.

    "Problem here you're having more people of that background trying to force themselves on people and the want to cry fowl when they are on the ground leaking" Then that turns into a hate crime. A gay person isn't going to just walk up and kiss you on the lips. Smith had the right to react, but if he would have gone all "Bad Boys" on that guy, he'd be shelling out millions in the lawsuit. He's just trying to look tough on Letterman.

    Bottom line that shit wasn't cool. Problem here is shake hands and keep it at that. Most people are not down with gays and lesbians. People have to tolerate the behavior, but that's as far as it goes. Problem here you're having more people of that background trying to force themselves on people and the want to cry fowl when they are on the ground leaking.

  • Randy

    Its sad that a black man still can't succeed without other black people claiming it was due to extraordinary circumstances. We all grew up seeing how hard will worked and how talented he was. Same with jay z. Dude is super smart. Still that's just not good enough for you blacks. He must have fucked someone in the ass, or met satan and gave him dap. Where did this gay shit even come from? Some jealous lame who couldnt stand to see a black man with good looks and talent succeed both socially and financially.. Just because you can't get your own life and you dreams together doesnt mean its impossible for another black man to do so. Black people need to start taking ownership of their lives and stop making excuses as to why other blacks have it better than you. get off you ass.

    • Anonymous

      >Lets not start with slavery but yall will try to justify that to. Whites didn't invent slavery, blacks were enslaving each other and selling them off first. Get over this shit already, it's just as bad as all Jews claiming the Holocaust or discrimination but growing up in wealthy in the suburbs with everything handed to them. What suffering can you actually claim? If you're black in America with slave roots, you inevitably have white ancestry somewhere anyway, and you should be a little thankful you're also flourishing for their suffering as you're in America rather than YOU suffering in some shithole like Liberia. It's not like you've suffered for the past, you can't be older than me, and you didn't sacrifice anything yourself. American culture is programmed with white guilt, legislation has been on the books to force fairness and diversity, and you know it. You want to claim all black American suffering throughout history to make a point about white America keeping you down? Other immigrants came here generations ago up to today poor as shit, scraping by the bottom, even my own family did it, and they pull themselves up to be successful and educated. How come they can do it but American blacks still have this enormous faction founded on eternally bitching, blaming, and pointing fingers at everyone and everything else like they're entitled? Look around the world and tell me where exactly you would flourish better before you get on websites like this spreading that shit that keeps people down and bitter.

      Its funny to sit back and watch white guys talk about black guys all day. Kind of gay to me. Like black dont sit around talking about white guys all day we dont give a fuck. We dont talk about how gay all white men are like the ones that make gay jokes all day and thinks its funny. Nobody black makes gay ass jokes. We dont talk about how freaky you muthfackas are like to sleep with animals like yall started the beasting with animals disgusting. Not to mention raping little boys and also your priest touching boys. Plus we know that most of you white guys like your ass played with being gay is in yall jeans yall try to justify it by saying oh its experementing or its ok to be milked naw that shit is gay. It goes back in history to the Romans that use to swing both ways yall being doing that shit. Yall the gayest people on earth and even tho we know this we dont sit around all day talking about how yall took over hip hop and destroyed it with all this corporate ownership same thing with rock roll but we the crazy ones. Yea yall put crack and alcohol in the hood. Shit 50 years ago yall were the animals with your racist ass acts. Put dogs on innocent black men,women and children. Hanging black men and burning them alive. Yea yall are right black people are subhuman when we learn what being an animal is from yall. Yall taught us well not to mention how you turn your back on the Indians after they show you how to survive yea yall right black people are the animals. Lets not start with slavery but yall will try to justify that to. The same way a dude in the hood can justify sell drugs or shooting people yall are a trip but we still love you....lol.

    • ETK

      Unfortunately all that sounds pretty accurate.. Just like what you described with Drake I've seen the same thing happen to J.Cole, to Lupe, hell even Nas in the 90s. Niggas turning on him circa Nastradamus. Only reasons he kept his rep is cause he's incredibly talented and most importantly stayed out of the public eye for a sufficient amount of time. Everybody likes the rapper's older music, cause that's when they was grinding to reach the top. Hipsters can't co-sign the winners

    • Greg Focker

      Its the same principle with rappers. When a nigga is still coming up they love you. but as soon as you blow up and start getting attention they call you a faggot sellout. Just 3 years ago the same niggas who call drake a homo were the same niggas dickrding him. but as soon as everybody started liking him it became a problem. then when the nigga dies (god forbid) you'll go back to loving him again because he no longer a threat. yall aint shit.

    • Greg Focker

      Sometimes it feels like black men are more jealous of their own kind than any other race or gender is of theirs. Black men always try to perpetuate the worst in each other to make themselves feel better and seem less pathetic by comparison. "oh the girls think he cute? he a faggot though. oh he getting money? he must be illuminati. He aint shit. Just like me."

    Its so sad that anytime a black man becomes successful or a sex symbol other black men become jealous and have to call him gay, Illuminati, or a sellout. It disgusts. black people hate to see one of their own succeed before themselves. jealousy in the black community is a cancer.

      no its just jealousy. white people dont get that treatment. only fellow blacks. a black man cant be successful to other black people without them making extraordinary excuses as to why he's successful. selling out, illumaniti (whatever the fuck that means). it can never just be because the nigga has talent worked hard and was blessed. black people HATE seeing their own succeed ahead of them. and its all just jealousy. if a nigga is handsome he's gay. if he's popular he's a sellout. if he's successful he sold his soul. you only fully embrace them after they are killed or dead and no longer pose a threat to you.

      He kissed him on the cheeks. Big deal. Will's gay ass overreacted a little bit. He, like most black men, is a homophobe. Probably because most of them are secretly gay. Look at Atlanta and all the fags and black people there along with the high number of people with AIDS in Atlanta. Coincidence? I think not.

  • Don't Worry about it

    Yo Allen Jacobs, you are a terrible journalist. First you say he was unexpectedly kissed on the mouth, when it's clear as day the dude TRIED to kiss dude on the mouth.
