For now this just looks like another example of Euro media getting carried away. It's really not a big deal until the JDL denounces him.

Will Smith angry over Hitler comment interpretation


LOS ANGELES, California (AP) -- Will Smith is angry over celebrity gossip Web site articles that he said misinterpreted a recent remark he made in a Scottish newspaper about Adolf Hitler.

Will Smith was upset that a remark about Hitler was misinterpreted by a writer, and then gossip sites.

In a story published Saturday in the Daily Record, Smith was quoted saying: "Even Hitler didn't wake up going, 'let me do the most evil thing I can do today.' I think he woke up in the morning and using a twisted, backwards logic, he set out to do what he thought was 'good.' "

The quote was preceded by the writer's observation: "Remarkably, Will believes everyone is basically good."

Over the weekend, dozens of celebrity gossip Web sites posted articles about the comment, many saying that Smith believed that Hitler was a "good" person.

"It is an awful and disgusting lie," Smith said in a statement Monday provided by his publicist. "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.

But isn't he right though? In his mind Hitler thought he was doing the right thing, the thing that needs to be done. He might have taken sadistic enjoyment in it but it wasn't like he wondered how he could be more evil today.

But that writer was a dick.

Still, who could be angry at anything with the adorable Li'l Santa with Li'l Rudolph in the bottom right of our posts?

Typical media word twisting. Looking for a story where there isn't one.
QFT. ESPN is starting to do that shit too. They tried to make a story out of that comment that Phil Jackson made last month and he quickly threw it back in their face. Hopefully Big Williestyle will do same with this reporter.

You're saying there's not a single human being on the face of this planet that wakes up and says "Damn I'm evil....Oh well."?

I hate the media

Why not focus on really important matters? Like the war? Like the Muslims in their country & throughout Europe who are cuckholding them? Will Smith saying that Hitler thought he was doing a good thing in his twisted mind is a non-story.
