However, the Hollywood actor has now been introduced to the dark side of Instagram after coming under fire for joking about suing a coffee company.

The drama kicked off after the 49-year-old actor, who is in Sydney on a promotional visit, shared a snap of himself enjoying a hot beverage at Will and Co. He captioned the image, which showed him pointing at the disposable blue cup: "I found this coffee company in Australia. Two words: I'm suing."

Not everybody saw the funny side with some going on the comments section to accuse the father of three, who is worth $250m, of taking advantage of poor people.

"Well, that escalated quickly," one person said, while another wrote: "Well at least we know you're a full blooded American #justsue."

"@willsmith don't u make enough money... what u gonna do trying to sue poor people trying to make an honest living. And you are supposed to be one of the "good" actors of Hollywood. Find something better to do with your time @willsmith, like trying to make the world a better place. Peace out."

  Tims customers fight cutbacks at rallies TORONTO - Protesters who rallied outside Tim Hortons locations across Ontario on Wednesday roasted some franchisees for slashing workers' benefits and breaks in an effort to compensate for the province's minimum wage hike, but many said their gripes would not derail their daily coffee runs. Those who gathered said they were worried staff would be negatively impacted if they boycotted to spite the small handful of franchisees — not necessarily the 16 locations that were targeted — who demanded workers cover a larger share of their dental and health-care benefits and take unpaid breaks to offset the 20 per cent raise to $14 an hour.

"OMG We need an eye roll emoji on the 'like' button for all the people that think he's serious. It constantly amazes me how many people are incapable of recognizing sarcasm or a joke when they see it," one person said.

A second supporter added: "What a sad sad world we live in. People are so wrapped up in themselves they cant see the bloke is having a joke. Great promotion for the business too. Good stuff Will."

The Oscar-nominated actor is Down Under promoting his Netflix movie Bright, which was recently greenlighted for a sequel.
