‘That’s a tarantula,’ Trey shot back, as his dad stood up on a chair as far away from the spider as possible.

‘Alright Trey you got to get that out of here,’ Will said to the oldest of his three children.

Trey then shoots a look back a look at his father as to say, ‘Why do I have to do it!?’

‘Come on you’re young and strong and you can handle the bite,’ the Bad Boys star pronounced while Trey shot another look of disbelief back at his father. 

It’s at this point that Trey gets the idea of putting a glass overtop of the spider, which elicited a few screams from the Bad Boys actor.

Once the tarantula was confined under the glass, Will gets a bit of courage and finally comes down from off his chair to assist in the situation

‘Alright, we’re taking turns because we are a team,’ the Pennsylvania native tell his son, and then proceeds to get the idea to stick a piece of paper underneath the glass cup so that they can lift and up and discard it outside.

But before getting rid of the tarantula, Will lifts up the glass to get a closer look at the spider. 

‘Okay, now that’s the biggest spider we have ever seen in our lives,’ Trey declares, to which his father firmly agrees.

‘Okay, I don’t like that at all,’ Will adds, as Trey asks him to lift it up higher to get a better view of the critter.

‘This is a spider in the house,’ the actor says while keeping it under the cup just below eye level, before declaring.’ We’re selling the house.’

Unwelcome visitor: 'Okay, I don't like that at all,' Will said before seemingly letting it go outside

Will’s latest Instagram video comes after he returned to the platform last month, posting an apology video for slapping Chris Rock onstage at the Oscars this March.

He issued an agonizing statement of contrition for his ‘unacceptable’ conduct and confirmed that Chris was ‘not ready to talk.’ 

Will slapped Chris at the Oscars for making a bald joke onstage about his wife Jada Pinkett Smith, who shaved her head because she has alopecia.

Less than an hour after his outburst, Will was awarded the best actor Oscar and received a standing ovation for his tearful speech in which he called himself a protector of his family and expressed a desire to be a ‘vessel of love.’

Although he apologized to the Academy and his fellow nominees during his speech, he did not issue a public apology to Chris until the following day. 

Before the Academy could decide what punishment it should impose for the incident, Will resigned from the organization.

Although his departure meant he could no longer vote for the Oscars, he at that point was still able to attend the show.

However the Academy has since imposed a 10-year ban on his attending the ceremony, though he can still be nominated for an win Oscars.
