Will Smith delivered the slap heard 'round Russia after a reporter tried to kiss him -- sparking a huge debate: did Will overreact or was he justified? Someone in the newsroom thinks he should have punched the guy!

Plus, Clint Eastwood's wife and kids are trying to turn him into a Kardashian! At least that's Harvey's take on their new reality show. Speaking of Kim Kardashian ... is she really a bigger star than Kanye West? Ugghh ...

I think Will overreacted to that. The reporter was obviously kissing cheek to cheek and brushed his mouth as he was going to kiss the other cheek. That's what it looked like to me.

I have absolutely NO problem with Will's reaction. Non-issue. The slap I would have given would have been MUCH harder.

In this day and age when both sexes and all preferences are supposed to be accepted, then so should this reaction be accepted! This is no different than ANY unwanted advances. It is VERY obvious that this guy is trying to kiss his mouth over and over again!!

Planning on mentioning the Jeff Conoway story?

"Travolta’s steamy Early Morning Fever session happened in the 1990s at Conaway’s home, Conaway’s former fiancée, Vikki Lizzi, told the National Enquirer.
The late Conaway allegedly said he was so dismayed to wake up and find his friend giving him oral sex that it ended his long relationship with Travolta.
Lizzi told the tabloid that Conaway made the claim in a suicide note he left after a failed bid to kill himself in 2006."

a backhand push away with no force isn`t a attack it`s a sane normal defence from a PR money shoot seeking A HOLE.A female would file a law suit of xual harrassment will was being nice he should have cold clocked him to the cement??? no concrete

Will Smith has long came off as gay to me, this kind of just reaffirms that. And what is with the way he always lowers his voice? It comes off as so fake sounding.

I'm sorry....give it a break! So straight people are now NOT supposed to be offended or protect their own space??? Diseases can be transferred from kissing and this is supposed to be okay???? You guys are sick!!!

No one has the right to violate your space like that. If a man did this to a woman charges would be filed.

Will Smith is completely homophobic (dare I say why), but his reaction to it was fine. He should have cold caulked the guy. If a woman was on the receiving end of that forced kiss, she would have slapped the crap out of him.

Nobody got hurt, Will's slap was a very light slap...slightly harder than the Lane Garrison slap....not enough to harm a fly.
I don't really see any homophobia here, just a reaction from Will in an uncomfortable, sudden situation.
