Jada Smith says she hopes Will Smith and Chris Rock reconcile

Actress Jada Pinkett Smith spoke again about the slap her husband, Will Smith, gave comedian Chris Rock in the face during the 2022 Oscars ceremony.

The speech was on his show Red Table Talk, a talk show hosted by Pinkett Smith. The episode, in which the actress and presenter returned to talk about the controversial subject, had as its theme alopecia, a condition that causes hair loss that she has faced for years, and which, in a way, was in the middle of the whole fight.


In the episode, she said she hopes a reconciliation will happen between Will Smith and Chris Rock: “On Oscar night, I deeply hope that these two smart and capable men have the opportunity to heal, talk about it and reconcile,” she said. Is it over there.

Jada continued, “With the state of the world today, we need both. We all need each other more than ever, actually. In the meantime, Will and I will be doing what we’ve been doing for 28 years, which is facing life together.”

the slap

It all started during the 2022 Oscars ceremony, while comedian Chris Rock presented the Best Documentary category. At one point, Rock referred to Jada Pinkett Smith as “GI Jane 2”, referring to the 1997 film “By the Edge of Honor”, starring Demi Moore in which the actress appeared bald.

The joke in question references the shaved head that the actress has been wearing since her problem with alopecia intensified. Actor Will Smith, Jada’s husband, took the stage and slapped Chris Rock in the face, causing a great deal of confusion at the ceremony and also in the audience who watched from home. Then the actor was caught on camera yelling “take my wife’s name out of your f… out of your mouth”.
