Will Smith in good spirits in Miami after Eddie Murphy jokes about infamous Oscars slap at Golden Globes

Will Smith appeared to be in a good mood on Wednesday as he was snapped in Miami a day after Eddie Murphy mocked his Oscars slap of Chris Rock at the Golden Globes.

The 54-year-old was clad in a casual ensemble of a white t-shirt with red Nike shorts over white athletic pants, with black sneakers and a white ballcap.

The Oscar-winner, sporting a goatee, headed to a black SUV as he was seen speaking on a phone on the daytime outing.

The latest: Will Smith, 54, appeared to be in a good mood on Wednesday as he was snapped in Miami a day after Eddie Murphy, 61, mocked his Oscars slap of Chris Rock, 57, at the Golden Globes.

Smith, 54, is more than nine months removed from his infamous Oscars incident March 27, in which he slapped comic Chris Rock, 57, after he made a joke at Pinkett Smith’s expense.

Rock said, ‘Jada, I love you, G.I. Jane 2, can’t wait to see it,’ in reference to the 1997 movie which featured Demi Moore with a shaved head. (Pinkett Smith has diagnosed with alopecia, which causes hair loss.)

Smith then walked onstage and smacked Rock, then returned to his seat and shouted at him twice, ‘Keep my wife’s name out of your f***ing mouth!’ to a stunned audience.

Murphy, 61, referenced the incident in his acceptance speech as he was presented with the Cecil B. DeMille Award at the Golden Globes in Los Angeles Tuesday.

‘I’ve been in show business for 46 years, and I’ve been in the movie business for 41 years, so this has been a long time in the making and greatly appreciated,’ Murphy said. 

He continued: ‘I’ve been doing this for a long time so I could literally stand up here and keep saying names until they play the piano, but I’m gonna wrap it up and just say something to all the new up-and-coming dreamers and artists that are in the room tonight.

‘I wanna let you know that there is a definitive blueprint that you can follow to achieve success, prosperity, longevity and peace of mind.’

Murphy said that the blueprint he’s used his whole career has been ‘very simple’: ‘Just do these three things: Pay your taxes, mind your business – and keep Will Smith’s wife’s name out your f***ing mouth!’

Murphy – who was presented the honors by Jamie Lee Curtis and Tracy Morgan – joins an esteemed group of luminaries to past receive the award that includes Oprah Winfrey, George Clooney, Morgan Freeman, Denzel Washington, Jodie Foster, Tom Hanks and the late Robin Williams.

Smith has subsequently apologized on multiple occasions over the incident, and resigned from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences ahead of being issued a 10-year ban from the Oscars.

In an apology he issued in July over the incident, Smith said his spouse ‘had nothing to do with’ his attack on Rock.

‘I made a choice on my own from my own experiences, from my history with Chris,’ he said. ‘I want to say sorry to my kids and my family for the heat that I’ve brought on all of us.’

He said, ‘I’ve reached out to Chris and the message that came back is that he’s not ready to talk, and when he is he will reach out. So I will say to you, Chris, I apologize to you. My behavior was unacceptable, and I’m here whenever you’re ready to talk.’
