Jada Pinkett Smith‘s series Red Table Talk addressed the Oscars slap in its season premiere.
The Facebook Watch talk show briefly referenced the incident in its fifth-season premiere this week, showing a message to viewers before jumping into a pre-taped interview with guest Janelle Monáe. The episode comes a month after Pinkett Smith’s husband Will Smith slapped comedian Chris Rock over a joke about her shaved head.
“Considering all that has happened in the last few weeks, the Smith family has been focusing on deep healing,” the statement read. “Some of the discoveries around our healing will be shared at the table when the time calls.”
It continued, “Until then…The Table will continue offering itself to powerful, inspiring, and healing testimonies like that of our incredibly impressive first guest. Thanks for joining us.”
The Girls’ Trip actor has stayed relatively silent following the Oscars. Her first Instagram post after the Oscars, shared March 29, was a graphic reading, “This is the season for healing and I’m here for it.”
Following the incident, the King Richard actor apologized publicly to Rock, and resigned from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. He has also been banned from attending the Oscars ceremony and all other Academy events for the next 10 years.
The couple has previously addressed their personal lives on the talk show, with a landmark 2020 episode showing a vulnerable discussion between the two about their previous separation and Pinkett Smith’s brief relationship with rapper August Alsina. Following the episode’s airing, a source told Us Weekly that the pair were content with their decision to air of the drama on the show.
“They are a very vulnerable and open pair, and they felt this was the best move for their family,” the source said. “This wouldn’t even be a story if they weren’t famous—it’s a normal situation—break up, get back together. It’s really frustrating to the whole family that their personal life is blasted out into the open, but they’re used to it.”
