Garcelle Beauvais recently became a trending topic on social media when her seemingly suggestive birthday greeting to Will Smith fell flat.

Now, after being dragged across social media, the actress has returned to the source to clarify her intentions when she made the initial post.

The actress, who played Fancy on The Jamie Foxx Show, posted a photo from a project she and Smith worked on in the past which showed them sharing a kiss. She captioned the picture, "A birthday kiss for the birthday boy #willsmith happy 50th."

    She later apologized for the post before urging folks to "lighten up."
