We tell our kids not to tolerate this sort of thing and to tell an adult or someone who can help. Why should Will have to put up with that sort of sexual harassment? I am a woman and I have been attacked in the street prior and if that guy would've tried that on me he would meet Mr Taser real right qwick. SEXUAL HARASSMENT IS WRONG PERIOD! WORD

They have to stop putting straight people on the spot like that. Just because someone is heterosexual does not mean they are homophobic. Homophobia is an excuse that is used when they encounter opposition to their lifestyle. In Will's case the reporter was trying to force acceptance onto Will for publicity, and Will made his point clear without resorting to violence. That tap on his cheek was not to knock some sense into him but to wake him up of his behavior...probably didn't work though.

I can't believe you dissect this drivel. With the exeception of Harvey and anyone who makes real money off this ****, what the hell?!

Will just had a knee-jerk reaction to someone being stupid. Handled the situation better than I would have.

pretty much proves Mr. Smith would never make it as a envoy to France or most other countries for that matter. In China women and girls hold hand and kiss and so on but in America we have gone freak~a~violent over intolerance GPS sex Im so afraid cowards blooding our neighbors and now we want to take this dog and pony show on the road world wide? Shame on you Will! remember the award went to France, go figure ,,, huh?

Sorry but Will Smith was right. You just don't go around kissing people. Someone I did not want to kiss me would get smacked too! personal space!

If some random guy grabbed a female star, Madonna or the like, and tried to kiss her, her guards would have stomped him into the concrete, and no one would have complained. It was a violation, and the guy had that pointed out to him. Besides, it was a tap not a slap down.

Look at the grin on the reporter's face! He obviously enjoyed humiliating Will! The guy had a fraction of what he should have got. Look at Will, he is a nice guy and if he really wanted to, he could have done some real damage to the reporter. He barely even tapped the guy. Will should have punched the guy in my opinion...

Will was completely in the right, I'm no homophob I have gay friends but I don't want any guy kissing especially a stranger in another country
