You might have seen it on your Cable TV or Dish Network.
The only thing more shocking than the announcement of Men in Black 3 (seriously, someone cite me some relevance on this Hollywood fiasco) was what transpired on the red carpet during the premiere that Mr. Will Smith attended with his wife, Jada. What seemed like some harmless ribbing between an interviewer and Mr. Smith soon turned ugly when the interviewer apparently attempted to kiss Smith on the lips. Smith spurned the advances and reacted incredulously before promptly smacking the interviewer to the hoots and hollers of adoring fans all over.
Ever since, people have spoken about the incident and Mr. Smith’s reaction. While some people saw his reaction as a mixture of genuine outrage at the unwanted advance and his attempt at keeping his cool in public, some saw the incident has a show of homophobia. While Smith has never truly spoken ill about the homosexual community, he has certainly never demonstrated any real slant toward it and it is clear, if nothing else, that he was merely a straight man reacting quite reasonably to the unwanted romantic advances of another man. Either way, this incident will probably be remembered for far longer than MIB3. Here’s hoping.
