Will Smith slapped a Ukrainian reporter on Friday while at the Moscow premiere of his upcoming film ‘Men in Black 3,’ TMZ is reporting. The slap came after the reporter tried to kiss the actor on the lips on the red carpet. Smith angrily pushed the reporter away and then slapped him across the face. Afterwards, Smith said “he’s lucky I didn’t sucker punch him.”
The television reporter is known for kissing celebrities. His mouth brushed up against Smith’s, and that’s why the actor slapped him. Smith happily continued to sign autographs for fans and do red carpet interviews after the slap, however. The incident occurred after Smith recently publicly supported gay marriage.
