This is the first time she addresses the incident.
Jada Pinkett Smith opened up for the first time about the historic Will Smith and Chris Rock Oscars slap in the most recent episode of “Red Table Talk,” where she also revealed the effects of alopecia.
“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,” her statement began.
“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.”
She went on to talk about the forever remembered incident between her husband and the comic, which has something to do with their topic of alopecia.
“My deepest hope is that these two intelligent, capable men [Smith and Rock] have an opportunity to heal, talk this out and reconcile,” she said.
“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,” she concluded. “Thank you for listening.”
As we previously reported, Will struck Chris in the face with an open palm and yelled a profanity at him for making a joke about his wife being in “G.I. Jane” because of her shaved head, at the Oscars event back in March.

It was going to eventually have to be addressed, but at this point I don’t even want them to, because the way Jada was attacked on social media was gross. This is going to start it all over again. https://t.co/djbJr8Hq92— 👸🏾L E A👸🏾 (@_MissLeandra) June 1, 2022
