Slapping A Reporter, and 5 Other Things Will Smith Could Do To Set Up A Rap Comeback

Previous / NextShift + → 1 of 6

Yesterday the West Philly side of Will Smith came out, and one of the most well-behaved, media-friendly men in showbiz backhanded a reporter who tried to get a little too close. The reporter’s shtick, apparently, is kissing celebs after he interviews them. Will was okay with the hug, but when the guy made multiple attempts to kiss Will on the mouth, Mr. Smith shoved the reporter away and gave him a backhand to the face. It wasn’t a violent slap, more of a disciplinary “fuck is wrong with you?” kind of slap, and with that simple gesture, Will stripped that reporter of any pride he may have had.

The reaction to the slap has been surprisingly positive. While some think Will “crossed a line,” the Internet responded mostly with LOLs and “that was the coolest thing Will Smith has done in years.” It got us thinking, this may just be the first step of Will setting himself up for a rap comeback. Watch the slap below, then read on to see 5 other things Will could do to get this rap comeback thing going.

    Oh, gawd #2 why. haha
    #5 sounds cool too. Too bad they gave that to Pitbull, though.

    hip hop has come far for these type of stereotypes. although i figured it was meant to be satirical

  • Confusion

    Not satirical. I believe Will Smith should have his friend shot.

    a legit Big Willie Style 2 album would be dope.. plus I’m sure there will be an MIB 3 soundtrack with a theme song
