Will Smith always seems to care about social media – and adorable animals.
The glamor actor took to Instagram on Friday, marking his first post since the Oscars ceremony on March 27 to not directly refer to the scandalous moment when he slapped Chris Rock on stage after a joke about the actor’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith.
Smith’s new post features a short video of a young gorilla earning the fury of a much larger gorilla by poking it repeatedly in the back. A message was added to the video saying “I’m trying to get back to social media”.
Among those who commented on this post was former National Geographic employee Cesar Millan, who wrote, “The animal kingdom is with you Will.” Additionally, Smith’s ex-wife, Sheree Zampino, responded with a heart emoji.
This comes exactly three weeks after Smith’s previous post, a video clip of him saying directly to the camera, in part, that “there’s no part of me that thinks it’s the right way to behave in this situation.” at that moment”. He also apologized to Rock and the comedian’s family after the incident that led to Smith’s resignation from the Academy, and he received a 10-year ban from organization events.
The Man in black The star’s only other post since the Oscars night was a written apology to Rock the day after the event. At the ceremony, Smith received the Academy Award for Best Actor for King Richard shortly after his confrontation with Rock over a joke about Jada’s shaved head, and he apologized to the Academy but not Rock during his acceptance speech.
Before the Oscars, Smith regularly used social media to share interesting moments in his life and connect with fans.
