Garcelle Beauvais Apologizes For Racy Birthday Wish To Will Smith

News

Actress Garcelle Beauvais got the folks on Twitter talking after she posted a very sexy birthday wish to co-star Will Smith, who celebrated his 50th birthday yesterday (Sept. 25). The photo was a screen grab from the film they did together, 1999’s Wild Wild West, where they’re getting hot and heavy.

“A birthday kiss for the birthday boy #willsmith happy 50th,” she wrote in the caption accompanying the photo

After members of the Twittersphere urged that she removed the photo before Smith’s wife Jada saw it, she simply replied with the words “bring it lol.” After she predictably caused a stir on the ‘Net, the former Jamie Foxx Show actress apologized for the inappropriate photo.

“Why is everyone so sensitive today ? Lighten up it’s a Tuesday,” she wrote after taking the post down. “Ok guys it was supposed to be a funny post My bad if I offended anyone ! If you are my followers you know I’m all about lifting up people and being positive being human I made a mistake … Have beautiful blessed day.”

Nonetheless, Instagram screen grabs live forever, and fans continued to come to the Smiths’ defense, stating that Beauvais (who is believed to have dated Smith in the ’90s) could have ruined their over 20-year marriage.
