And The Publicist Says..

As expected, Camp Smith has issued a counter statement to address the outrage over Will Smith's casually tossed off references to Hitler.

Smith's PR says that Smith says: "It is an awful and disgusting lie, It speaks to the dangerous power of an ignorant person with a pen. I am incensed and infuriated to have to respond to such ludicrous misinterpretation." "Adolf Hitler was a vile, heinous vicious killer responsible for one of the greatest acts of evil committed on this planet," read the statement.

Actually Will, it speaks to the dangerous power of a celebrity with a mass audience trying to sound interesting. I find real danger in ignorant celebrities shooting off irresponsibly about major issues and public figures assuming that the press will work overtime to make them look less stupid. For better or worse people look up to you (I know, I can't figure it out either) and tossing off references to mass murdering world figures doesn't endear you to a good portion of your ticket buying audience.

As you were.....
