Jada Pinkett Smith is best known for her recurring role as a supporting character in the sitcom A Different World. Her husband, Will Smith, recently slapped Chris Rock at the Oscars, which attracted a lot of controversy. Jada recently expressed her thoughts on the incident.
Jada appeared on the latest episode of her Facebook Watch show, Red Table Talk. She hopes Will Smith and Chris Rock will ‘reconcile’ after Oscars slap. Jada turned her husband’s blowup into a teachable moment about alopecia areata.
My deepest hope is that these two intelligent, capable men have an opportunity to heal, talk this out, and reconcile.
Jada dedicated the episode to the hair loss disorder that affects her and millions of others. Smith slapped Rock on stage in March after the comedian made a joke about Pinkett Smith’s shaved head. Rock joked that Jada looked identical to Demi Moore in the 1997 film GI Jane.
The slap resulted in Smith’s ten-year suspension from the Academy Awards. Chris Rock also took a dig at the slap in his comedy shows but both the men haven’t actually sat down to talk it out. We’ll keep you updated if it ever happens.
