Jada Pinkett Smith Speaks Out After Oscars Slap


The incident between Will Smith and Chris Rock at the 2022 Oscars is still a hot topic for fans. If you haven't heard yet, Chris Rock made a joke about Jada Pinkett Smith's shaved head, to which Smith reacted by hitting Rock across the face.

The Academy stated on Monday that it would launch an official investigation of Smith's behavior in order to determine the actor's fate. Later that day, Smith apologized to Rock, the Academy, and other Oscars attendees in a public statement, but Pinkett Smith was noticeably silent.

On Tuesday, however, Pinkett Smith spoke up with a cryptic Instagram post. "This is a season for healing and I'm here for it," Pinkett Smith told her nearly 12 million followers, referring to her husband's attempts to smooth things over in his apology to Rock.
