Will angry over Hitler row

Los Angeles, Dec. 25 (AP): Will Smith is angry over celebrity gossip website articles that he said misinterpreted a recent remark he made in a Scottish newspaper about Adolf Hitler.

In a story published on 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 websites 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 yesterday 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.
