Seeing an apparent tarantula walking across the floor, Will Smith jumps on his chair

He posted a video showing his oldest son and himself corralling a giant spider in their home over the weekend, his first social media posting since 2013.

'How in the world is that a Tarantula? That is a huge spider!' Will, 53, said in the video. As the giant arachnid crawled across the floor, Trey, the Oscar winner's son, climbed onto a chair for safety.'Go on, you're young and strong,' he explains to Trey, 29. 'I'm sure you can handle the bite.'

In response, his son gives him a look that says 'Are you serious?' while holding his hands above his head. Trey finally managed to trap the spider under glass while his dad screamed in the background, and the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air star finally stepped in to help.

Will told the camera, 'Sure, we take turns, we're a team.'. Next, he held the spider within the cup using a paper towel, which revealed his casual mint green hoodie and pink shorts.

'We've never seen anything like that in our lives,' Trey said.'We're selling the house,' Will said. 'I don't like it at all.'

It even garnered a comment from his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith's, Red Table Talk account, since its caption jokes about 'posting from a Holiday Inn.' 'That's HIS house now,' the comment read.

In addition to posting an apology video to Chris Rock last month and a post on Saturday about returning to social media, the King Richard actor also posted a video on Thursday apologizing for a previous post.

After Rock, 57, made a joke about Pinkett Smith's shaved head onstage at the 94th Academy Awards, Will struck him. The 50-year-old actress lives with alopecia.

Best actor winner Michael Douglas resigned from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences after his Oscars outburst. He was banned for ten years from attending Academy events.

After the apology clip was posted in late July, Will claimed he had reached out privately to Rock and that he had received a message saying that Rock was not yet ready to speak but would get in touch once he was.

Thank You!
