Jada Pinkett Smith wants Will Smit and Chris Rock to reconcile: We need them both

Much has been discussed and dissected since March when WIill Smith took the stage and slapped comedian Chris Rock at the Oscars for a prank Rock pulled on Smith’s wife at the expense of Jada Pinkett Smith.
Now, Jada went into detail about the infamous incident from the time on the June 1 episode of her “Red Table Talk” series. Prior to this, Jada only indirectly responded to the issue by posting a meme that read, “It’s a season for healing. And that’s what I’m here for.”

The new episode of “Red Table Talk” focused on alopecia, a condition Jada was diagnosed with a few years ago. Jada spoke about the slapping incident in the context of alopecia.

Smith slapped Rock on stage at the Oscars for joking about Pinkett Smith’s bald head, which she shaved due to her own battle with alopecia.

“This is a really important ‘Red Table Talk’ on alopecia. Given what I’ve been through with my own health and what happened at the Oscars, thousands of people have reached out to me with their stories,” Pinkett Smith said at the start of the episode.

She continued, “I’m taking this time to give our alopecia family an opportunity to talk about what it’s like to have this condition and to educate people about what alopecia really is.” This actor thinks Will Smith should return his Oscar after slapping the episode with Chris Rock

“Now, on Oscar night, my deepest hope is that these two smart, capable men have the opportunity to heal, to talk about it, and to reconcile. In the state of the world today, we need them both. And we all need each other more than ever. Until then, Will and I continue to do what we have been doing for the past 28 years, and it continues to understand this thing called living together. Thanks for listening,” Pinkett Smith added.

Days after the slapping incident, the Academy suspended Smith from membership for 10 years due to his violent actions at the Oscars.

Rock has yet to publicly address the slap in detail outside of making brief jokes about it on his current stand-up tour. Prior to the announcement of the suspension, Will Smith had resigned from the Academy. Smith issued a public apology to Rock a day after the incident.
