Jada Pinkett Smith’s Return To Red Table Talk Opened With Message Addressing What’s ‘Happened’ after Oscars Slap Moment

While the Academy Awards aired nearly a month ago, the conversation surrounding the event hasn’t slowed down much. This is mostly due to Will Smith’s infamous slapping of Chris Rock, and the discourse that has continued have a result. Now Jada Pinkett Smith has returned to the Red Table Talkwhich opened with a message addressing what’s “happened” after the Oscars slap moment.

Late into the evening of the Academy Awards, presenter Chris Rock made a joke about Jada Pinkett Smith’s hair, seemingly unaware of her struggles with alopecia. This prompted Will Smith to step on stage and slap the comic, shortly before giving a tear-filled acceptance speech for the Best Actor award. The fallout for the slap has been ongoing, and now Jada has addressed it in the opening of the new episode of Red Table Talk. The message reads:

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. Until then… the table will continue offering itself to powerful, inspiring and healing testimonies like that of our incredibly impressive first guest.
