The conversation about Will Smith’s infamous slap is back in the headlines after Jada Pinkett Smith addressed the incident on a new episode of Red Table Talk. It’s been more than two months since the 2022 Oscars, and the conversation about Will Smith’s infamous slap is back in the headlines after Jada Pinkett Smith addressed the incident on a new episode of Red Table Talk. Chris Rock, on the other hand, seemed to be unconcerned about Jada’s recent comments.
According to an ET insider, Chris is ignoring Jada’s “pleading” for Will and Chris to reconnect.
“He’s not concerned with the Smiths at the moment,” the source says. “He’s touring and he’s preparing for a comedy special.”
Chris is the most honest person ever, according to the source; nothing he does is calculated or phoney, and he isn’t caught up in the Hollywood environment; instead, he is focused on himself.
Jada broke her silence on the Oscars incident, in which her husband punched Chris Rock in the face after he made a joke about Jada’s shaved head during the live telecast of the awards presentation, during the most recent episode of Red Table Talk.
“Now, about Oscar night, my deepest hope is that these two intelligent, capable men have an opportunity to heal, talk this out and reconcile,” she shared. “The state of the world today, we need them both. And we all actually need one other more than ever. Until then, Will and I are continuing to do what we have done for the last 28 years, and that’s keep figuring this thing called life together.”
Will openly apologised to Chris and resigned from the Academy in the weeks following the event. Will will be barred from attending any Academy events for a decade, in person or online, according to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
