Jada Pinkett-Smith Speaks Out About Oscars Slap, Says Will Smith and Chris Rock Must ‘Reconcile’

Jada Pinkett-Smith speaks out about infamous Oscars slap.

During a recent episode of  Red Table Talk, Jada speaks publicly for the first time about her husband, Will Smith slapping Chris Rock. “This is a really important ‘Red Table Talk’ on alopecia. Considering what I’ve been through with my own health and what happened at the Oscars, thousands have reached out to me with their stories,” Pinkett Smith said at the start of the episode. “I’m using this moment to give our alopecia family an opportunity to talk about what it’s like to have this condition and to inform people about what alopecia actually is.”

She continues, “now about Oscar night, my deepest hope is that these two intelligent, capable men have an opportunity to heal, talk this out and reconcile,” Pinkett Smith added. “The state of the world today, we need them both. And we all actually need one another more than ever. Until then, Will and I are continuing to do what we have done for the last 28 years, and that’s keep figuring out this thing called life together. Thank you for listening.”

She says her family has been focused on deep healing. “Considering all that has happened in the last few weeks, the Smith family has been focusing on deep healing. Some of the discoveries around our healing will be shared at the table when the time calls.”

I am embarrassed and my actions were not indicative of the man I want to be. There is no place for violence in a world of love and kindness.”
