Jada Pinkett-Smith has finally spoken up about the notorious event at the 2022 Oscars when her husband Will Smith smacked Chris Rock onstage in front of the entire world when Rock made a joke about Jada’s bald head appearance.
Jada Pinkett-Smith suffers from the hair loss disorder alopecia and was not pleased to be singled out by Rock – and Will Smith retaliated violently. Will Smith has resigned from The Academy following The Slap, and his career’s future remains uncertain.
So, what does Jada Pinkett Smith have to say about what transpired during the Oscars between Will Smith and Chris Rock?
Pinkett-Smith (briefly) discussed the 2022 Oscars issue during the opening seconds of her recent Red Table Talk show:
“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 shared with viewers. “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.”
“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. 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.”
