A little over two months after the controversy that took place at the Oscars for the slap that Will Smith gave Chris Rock, after he joked about Jada Pinkett‘s alopecia, it is the actress who spoke openly on the subject.
Although Jada previously regretted the scene and confessed that her family was in a “healing” moment, this time the actress took advantage of her Red Table Talk program to open up about the relationship between Smith and Rock after the incident. After presenting a special on alopecia, Pinkett commented:
