Jada Pinkett Smith said that her family is “focusing on deep healing” after Smith slapped Rock.
A statement from Pinkett Smith read before Wednesday’s Facebook Live episode of Red Table Talk, “Considering all that has happened in the last few weeks, the Smith family has been focusing on deep healing.”
“Some of the discoveries around our healing will be shared at the table when the time calls. Until then…the table will continue offering itself to powerful, inspiring and healing testimonies like that of our incredibly impressive first guest.”
Pinkett shared a cryptic message about healing on Instagram.
Will Smith has since apologized directly to the Academy and Chris Rock. Now, Jada Pinkett Smith is focusing on healing.
“This is a season for healing and I’m here for it,” the actress shared on her personal Instagram account.
Wednesday’s “Red Table Talk” episode featured Janelle Monae, who recalled the moment she came out as non-binary.
“As soon as you guys started the show, I was in,” Monae said as she took a seat at the Red Table. “I was like ‘this is exactly what we need.'”
The show unfolded with a bit of the Grammy-award winner’s background, including when she came out as pansexual.
“I feel like God is so much bigger than the he or the she,” she said to Jada Pinkett Smith, her mother, Adrienne Banfield-Norris, and her daughter, Willow.
