Will Smith will make his first public appearance from the slap of the Oscars

Will Smith has been seen in public for the first time since his offensive slap against Chris Rock at the Oscars last month.

In an obsolete episode in history, Smith punched the comedian on stage during the Oscars after joking about the shaved head of his wife Jada Pinkett-Smith.

After many apologies for the incident, the actor resigned from the Academy. He was subsequently barred from participating in all Academy proceedings for 10 years.

Since the incident, Smith has disappeared from the spotlight, but yesterday (April 23) he was spotted at Kalina airport in Mumbai, India, smirking and smiling at the paparazzi.

The images were shared on Instagram by Indian photographer Viral Bhayani, and The Hindustan Times reported that Smith stayed at the JW Marriott hotel in Juhu and was leaving Mumbai yesterday.

Jada Pinkett Smith has said her family has become “deeply focused on healing” after her husband’s altercation with Chris Rock.

Jada initially apparently shared a post on Instagram in response to the incident, writing, “This is healing season and I’m here for it.”

Then, when her Red Table Talk show returned on Wednesday (April 20), a message appeared on screen promising to share more information about her family ‘s “healing” later.

The message read: “In the light of all that has happened in the last few weeks, the Smith family has focused on deep healing. Some of the discoveries will be shared throughout our healing when the time comes.

“Until then … we will continue to set the table for such powerful, inspiring and healing testimonials for our first and most remarkable guest.”

When Will left the Academy, the actor wrote: “My actions at the 94th Academy Awards were calm, painful and unacceptable. The list of those who hurt me is long and includes Chris, his family, many of my friends and family., all present, and the global audience at home.
