Will Smith, as he joked earlier this week, is “trying to get back on social” after a months-long hiatus following his on-stage brawl at the Oscars in March.

Over the weekend, the actor returned to regular posting with a video of him and his eldest son, Trey, attempting to capture a large tarantula that had infiltrated their home.

“What the hell is going on?” “That is a big-ass spider,” Smith, 53, says in the video.

Though the Oscar winner did battle an 80-foot mechanical spider in the 1999 film Wild Wild West, he delegated the heroics to Trey, 29.

Smith is seen in the video climbing onto a chair for safety while instructing his oldest child on how to get rid of the tarantula.

“Come on, you’re young and strong,” he says to the teenager. “You’ll be fine with the bite.”

Trey eventually gives in and traps the spider beneath a glass. Smith screams as he steps in to slide a piece of paper underneath the creature so they can take it outside, dressed in a mint green hoodie and pink shorts.

“So that’s the biggest spider we’ve ever seen,” Trey muses.

“I don’t like it,” Smith responds, later adding, “We’re selling the house.”

In the caption of his post, the King Richard star joked that he was “posting this from a Holiday Inn.

The video elicited laughter from fellow actor Jamie Foxx and Smith’s Aladdin co-star Naomi Scott, while the Red Table Talk account for wife Jada Pinkett Smith joked, “That’s HIS house now.”

Smith’s post comes just a few weeks after he broke his silence about slapping Chris Rock during the Oscars in response to the comedian’s joke about Pinkett Smith, who suffers from alopecia.

The Best Actor winner revealed in a July 29 post that he’s been doing “a lot of thinking and personal work” since the incident.

He then went on to answer questions about what led up to the shocking encounter and apologised to Rock.

“Chris, please accept my apologies. “My behaviour was unacceptable, and I’m available whenever you’re ready to talk,” Smith said, adding that he’s been told the comic isn’t yet ready to clear the air with him.

“There is no part of me that believes that was the right thing to do at the time,” he continued.

“There is no part of me that believes that is the best way to deal with feelings of disrespect or insult.”

Meanwhile, Smith’s first wife and Trey’s mother, Sheree Zampino, told DailyMail.com this week that she hopes “people allow him to be human.”

“I really hope so because I support him,” Zampino said of her famous ex. “We are on good termsl.”
