Will Smith ordered by NY mayor to move “Men In Black” trailer

By Sean O’Connell He may be from West Philadelphia (born and raised), and Miami is his second home, but Will Smith continues to annoy New Yorkers with the massive trailer he’s occupying on the Manhattan “Men In Black 3” set.

But Smith, always eager to please, has agreed to move the massive mobile home, bowing to angry requests who are angry that the vehicle takes up too much space and blocks their world from view.

Smith actually was ordered to move the trailer by N.Y. mayor Michael Bloomberg, according to the NY Post. He shifted the 53-foot double decker “from the heart of SoHo to a nearby private parking lot yesterday, just in time to catch the special night rate.”

“He ain’t real happy,” said a source close to Smith. “It’s an inconvenience. Now he is about a mile away from set.”

Awwwww. Smith didn’t seem so angry when the Post confronted him earlier in the day on the trailer controversy, though. When asked if he found it funny, Smith reportedly answered, “It’s hilarious.”

But city officials weren’t laughing.

“To balance the interests of the production and the neighborhood, we have instructed ‘Men in Black 3’ to relocate the trailer to a private lot,” read a statement from Mayor’s Office of Film, Theater and Broadcasting.
