TMZ – Jada Pinkett Smith is finally addressing the infamous Oscars slap, but rather than apologizing … she’s saying Chris Rock and Will Smith both have to set aside their differences.
She opened the latest episode of “Red Table Talk” by saying, “My deepest hope is that these two intelligent, capable men have an opportunity to heal, talk this out and reconcile.”
Jada only had one more remark about the incident … which was that she believes both her husband and Chris are needed now more than ever.
Her take is kinda shocking, because most people feel it’s Will who really owes Chris a face-to-face — or at the very least a personal convo — where he apologizes for getting physical.
As you know, Will has been banned from the next 10 years of Oscars ceremonies after slapping Chris over a joke about Jada’s bald head — she’s been open over the years about her struggles with alopecia.
In fact, if not for alopecia she might not have even addressed the slap — the ‘RTT’ episode is about the challenges Jada and others face with the condition.
When this season of ‘Red Table’ began, it opened with a statement saying her family has been focusing on deep healing, and would address the issues when the time comes. Apparently, the time has come for Jada … but not yet Will.
