Jada Pinkett Smith delivered her second official remark on the iconic Oscar slap on her ‘Red Table Talk.’
By Omotayo Olutekunbi
On the June 1 edition of the popular Facebook series co-hosted by her daughter and mother, the actress spoke briefly about her husband, Will Smith, assaulting comedian Chris Rock.
Pinkett-Smith stated that she chose to address the subject since the episode focused on alopecia, a medical disease that causes hair loss.
“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.”
Smith smacked Chris Rock on the Oscar stage over a joke about Pinkett’s bald head, in case you missed it. The actor was then barred from membership in the Academy for ten years.
Pinkett Smith commented on Smith’s Oscar violence,
“Now about Oscar night, my deepest hope is that these two intelligent, capable men have an opportunity to heal, talk this out and reconcile.”
“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.”
