Will Smith’s daughter Willow Smith is getting philosophical on Twitter.

The ‘Red Table Talk’ singer and co-host took to the social media platform on Saturday and shared cryptic tweets about the ‘meaning of life’ following her father’s resignation from the Academy of film arts and sciences.

“The meaning of life is found in a challenge,” the 21-year-old tweeted.

“Life is a series of reactions,” she wrote in a separate tweet.

The actor resigned on Friday following his Oscar slap of Chris Rock and said he would accept any further sanctions imposed by the organization.

In a statement Friday afternoon, the 53-year-old said he would “fully accept all consequences of my conduct. My actions at the 94th Academy Awards were shocking, painful and inexcusable.”

Film Academy president David Rubin said Smith’s resignation had been accepted.

“We will continue to advance our disciplinary proceedings against Mr. Smith for violating the Academy’s standards of conduct, prior to our next board meeting scheduled for April 18,” he confirmed.

The resignation came two days after the academy’s board of directors met to initiate disciplinary proceedings against Smith for breaching the group’s standards of conduct. These procedures could have resulted in a suspension or an expulsion, and it was not immediately known what additional penalty he could incur.

Had he been expelled, Smith would have joined a small group of men retired from the academy: Harvey Weinstein, Roman Polanski, Bill Cosby and actor Carmine Caridi, who was expelled for sharing award selectors.

On March 27, Smith emerged from his front row seat at the Dolby Theater onto the stage and punched Rock, 57, who had made a joke at the expense of Smith’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith. Moments later, he won Best Actor for his role in ‘King Richard’.

Rock, who was about to present the Oscar for Best Documentary, declined to press charges at the request of the police. He only briefly spoke publicly about the attack, saying at a comedy gig in Boston last week that he was still “processing what happened”.

Smith stunned Rock, the theater crowd and viewers at home when he took the stage after Rock joked, “Jada, I love you. ‘GI Jane 2’, can’t wait to see it. “

Pinkett Smith, 50, who has spoken publicly about her hair loss condition, alopecia, had a clean-shaven head similar to that of Demi Moore in the original film.

After Smith’s attack, he returned to his seat and angrily yelled twice at Rock to “get my wife’s name out of your fucking mouth”. When Smith took the stage less than an hour later to accept his Oscar, he tearfully apologized to the Academy, but notably omitted any mention of Rock.

The fallout was immediate and intense. Smith had supporters for standing up for his wife, but he was widely condemned for responding violently and for both spoiling his long-sought Oscar win and eclipsing the other winners of the night.

“I have betrayed the trust of the Academy,” Smith said in his statement Friday. “I deprived the other nominees and winners of their opportunity to celebrate and be celebrated for their extraordinary work. I am heartbroken. I want to put the spotlight back on those who deserve attention for their achievements and allow to the Academy to return to the incredible work he does to support creativity and artistry in film.”

“Change takes time and I am committed to doing the work to ensure that I never again let violence take precedence over reason,” he concluded.
