Will Smith’s life appears to be returning to normalcy following his infamous slap of Chris Rock at this year’s Academy Awards, which sparked outrage among fans and other celebrities.
According to Fox News, the “King Richard” actor returned to social media months after the Oscars incident with the comedian with his eldest son Trey.
The 53-year-old actor took to Instagram to share a video of himself and his son capturing a massive tarantula.
They captured a massive spider and placed it beneath a glass bowl.
He said in the short clip:
“What the whole h***. That is a big a** spider.”
The post was captioned, “Posting this from a Holiday Inn.”
Initially, the two are fighting over who will catch the spider. The actor stated that he was on a chair and that his son should get the critter because he is “young and strong,” which means he can handle it if it bites him.
The two put in a lot of effort as they took turns catching the eight-legged creature.
The latest news comes nearly six months after Will Smith apologized to Chris Rock in front of a live audience and millions of viewers at home for slapping him.
In a lengthy statement, the actor stated that all forms of violence are “poisonous and destructive,” and that his actions on the night of the famous event were unacceptable and inexcusable.
Although making fun of his wife Jada Pinkett-Smith’s medical condition is a big part of his job, he said it was “too much” for him to bear, and his actions were motivated by his emotions.
“I would like to publicly apologize to you, Chris. I was out of line and I was wrong. I am embarrassed and my actions were not indicative of the man I want to be”
He also apologized to all of the producers and Academy members, as well as the attendees and people who attended the event.
He ended the post by stating that he is still a “work in progress.”
Following his apology, the Academy announced that Smith will be barred from attending the show for the next ten years, beginning on April 8, 2022.
He is not permitted to attend any Academy Awards-related events or programs, whether in person or virtually.
