Will Smith is officially an elder

On Tuesday, September 25, rapper/actor/Instagram star/motivational speaker Will Smith turned 50 years old. It was a celebration online, with fans of Smith wishing the legend a happy 50th.

This included Garcelle Beauvais, who acted alongside Smith in the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and Wild Wild West. She posted and then deleted an, uh, interesting tweeted dedicated towards Smith:

Will Smith’s kids, Trey, Jaden, and Willow Smith, also posted nice, more appropriate messages for their father:

Trey added the hashtag #WillSmiththeJump because, to celebrate his 50th birthday, Smith is going to jump out of a helicopter into the Grand Canyon.

Last week, Smith posted a video on his YouTube about how he jumped from a 355-foot waterfall in Zimbabwe:

That was the first time Smith had ever bungee jumped.

Now he’s going to give it another whirl. He will be making the jump live on YouTube at 6 PM EST. Jada Pinkett Smith, Will’s longtime wife, celebrated her husband on Instagram.

She also made mention of the fact that Will was about to jump into the Grand Canyon.

You can check out a stream of the moment below.
