Donald Trump has built quite a reputation for making questionable comments about women, and actor Will Smith is pretty disgusted by it.

Smith criticized Trump for historically calling women various names; Smith made the comments while speaking to News.com.au while promoting his upcoming movie, "Suicide Squad."

"For a man to be able to publicly refer to a woman as a fat pig, that makes me teary," Smith said. "And for people to applaud, that is absolutely fucking insanity to me. My grandmother would have smacked my teeth out of my head if I had referred to a woman as a fat pig. And I cannot understand how people can clap for that. It's absolutely collective insanity."

Fox News host Megyn Kelly famously confronted Trump on live television during the first GOP debate for labeling women "fat pigs," "disgusting animals," and "dogs." Trump responded that he has only been mean to Rosie O'Donnell.


Smith said that if either of his sons talked about women the way Trump does in public, "they couldn’t even live in my house anymore."

Trump has made impolite comments about a number of women, but he has singled out O'Donnell for abuse for nearly 10 years.

Their feud started in 2006, when O'Donnell criticized him for allowing Miss USA Tara Conner to keep her crown after she was accused of abusing drugs and engaging in underage drinking. O'Donnell mocked Trump's decision on "The View," and Trump went after her in an "Entertainment Tonight" interview in which he called her "disgusting" and threatened to sue her and have someone steal her girlfriend, among other things.

So far, Trump has not responded to Smith's remarks.
