Will Smith angrily slams Donald Trump over hateful comments against women, says remarks reflect 'darkness of his soul'
Top Hollywood actor Will Smith has criticized Presidential hopeful Donald Trump over history of misogynistic comments especially one where he called a woman 'a fat pig' and says the Billionaire's remarks reflect 'darkness' of his soul'.
"For a man to be able to publicly refer to a woman as a fat pig, that makes me teary," Smith toldnews.com.au in an interview posted Tuesday. "And for people to applaud, that is absolutely f---ing insanity to me," he added. "It's absolutely collective insanity."
"If one of my sons — I am getting furious just thinking about it — if one of my sons said that in a public place, they couldn't even live in my house anymore,"
The former "Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" acknowledged there was a lengthy list of offensive comments Trump has made, but his views on women were "such an absolute illustration of a darkness of his soul."
“For me, deep down in my heart, I believe that America won’t and we can’t (elect Mr Trump). Of all the things he has said, and we could go through the laundry list, that was the one that was such an absolute illustration of a darkness of his soul. I just cannot figure out how people can clap for that.”
“I think as much as we want to believe that love is the greatest human motivator, it’s not. Fear is. Fear is the most dangerous and powerful motivator because when a human being gets scared, fight or flight kicks in. And there is this really separatist non-inclusive xenophobic, racist wave that is sweeping the globe that is making us pull apart farther than putting us together. The importance of leaders is that they have to be level headed, they have to be calm, because when people get scared, they lose their morality and that reptile mind takes over. It’s the type of thing that you see in all forms of nature, but our leaders can’t be that.” Clearly enraged, he continues. “So, we are not even going to pretend it is going to happen. I have faith in America. America has had really critical times but the good (people) tend to make their way to the top.”
