Will Smith used to be one of the most active users on social media, sharing all kinds of material and even founding a company to produce creative films for his Instagram fans. All of it, however, abruptly and completely came to an end.

Until March 27, 2022, when he startled the world and pulled off the now-famous slapping event in which Chris Rock was the victim, the actor, singer, and comedian was in a wonderful spot professionally.

In a recent brief interview, the actor broke his silence and expressed regret for the event. He was also recently spotted in public for the first time with his wife, Jada Pinkett-Smith. Smith appears to be making a slight return to his previous social media engagement with this most recent post. People appear to be open to his returning to the spotlight as seen by the overwhelming favourable comments on the aforementioned IG post.

A brief video in Smith's latest post showed a juvenile gorilla repeatedly poking a larger gorilla in the behind, eliciting the older gorilla's wrath. "Me trying to get back on social," read the remark that was added to the video. 

Cesar Millan, a former National Geographic star, left a comment on the article with the words, "Animal kingdom is with you Will." Sheree Zampino, Smith's ex-wife, also replied with a heart emoji.

Smith's previous post, a video of him addressing directly to the camera and saying, among other things, that "there is no part of me that thinks it was the right way to behave in that moment," was published three weeks prior. In the wake of the incident that caused Smith to resign from the Academy and for which he was given a 10-year ban from the organization's activities, he also expressed his regret to Rock and the comedian's family.

The 'Men in Black' actor's lone statement since the Oscars' evening was a letter of apology to Rock the following day. Shortly after hitting Rock over a joke about Jada's shaved head, Smith collected the best actor Oscar for 'King Richard' during the event. In his victory speech, Smith apologized to the Academy but not to Rock.
