74. As many times as Will Smith has been in Europe

it would seem he would have observed or even encountered the cheek kissing before.

But perhaps such a greeting had never been extended to him before and he found it offensive when it was. I have seen this before. I have seen straight American men who come to Europe who have a reaction similar to Will Smith's. They'll hug another man, pat each other on the back, but they are not so hot on two men brushing cheeks, which is the European equivalent to the American gesture of hugging and patting on the back.
