Will Smith has been busy promoting his new movie Men In Black III around the world.

His promotional tour appeared to be going smoothly until he attended the movie’s premiere in Moscow, Russia. Things took a turn for the worse at the premiere when a Ukrainian reporter tried to kiss him on the lips on the red carpet. Smith quickly slapped the reporter across the face.

Smith was incredibly angry that the guy showed overt affection toward him. After Smith slaps the guy, Will said, “He’s lucky I didn’t sucker punch him.”

If you missed the slap, watch it below.

Smith sat down with David Letterman to explained in detail what actually took place between him and the reporter. Smith told Letterman, “It was just awkward, Dave. They were like, ‘Oh, no, we’re sorry, you know. It’s just his ‘schtick,’ you know. And I said, ‘well, that’s why his a** got schtuck.'”
