A Jewish group is up in arms today over a comment Will Smith made about Adolph Hitler. The I Am Legend star told the Daily Record that he believes everyone is good and that,
“Even Hitler didn’t wake up going, ‘let me do the most evil thing I can do today’,” said Will. “I think he woke up in the morning and using a twisted, backwards logic, he set out to do what he thought was ‘good’. Stuff like that just needs reprogramming.
In response, the Jewish Defense League — not to be confused with the Justice League of America — wants all theaters to pull I Am Legend and has asked Barack Obama to repudiate Will. The league says Will “spit on the memory of every person murdered by the Nazis. His disgusting words stick a knife in the backs of every veteran who fought (and sometimes died) to save the world from the intentions of Adolf Hitler.”
I kind of know where Will’s coming from. It’s not like I woke up one day and said, “I’m going to satisfy every female on Earth with my sexual prowess.” No, I woke up one morning and said I was going to stick my wang in as many beautiful women as possible no matter what this court order says. Satisfaction was only a byproduct. A sexy, orgasm laden byproduct. If you don’t see how this relates to what Will said, then God save your soul.
