Jada Pinkett Smith took to Instagram on Tuesday for the first time since her husband, Will Smith, slapped comedian Chris Rock onstage at the Oscars, leaving a cryptic message for her followers. “It’s a season for healing and I’m here for it,” she wrote in her Instagram post. No other words accompanied this sentence. This post follows Will Smith’s public apology to Chris Rock and the Oscar audience for his outburst of violence. It was a joke by Chris Rock about the shaved head of Jada Pinkett Smith, suffering from alopecia – a disease causing significant hair loss, which she revealed to suffer from a few years ago – which had triggered the scandal. Will Smith suddenly took the stage and slapped Chris Rock under the dumbfounded eyes of celebrities and viewers. The 53-year-old actor yelled at her, “Leave my wife’s name out of your fucking mouth!” once back in his chair, “I would like to publicly apologize to you, Chris. What I did was inappropriate and I was wrong,” Will Smith wrote on his Instagram account on Monday. “My behavior last night at the Oscars was unacceptable and inexcusable. Jokes at my expense are part of the job, but one joke about Jada’s health issue was too much for me and I reacted emotionally,” he said. he explained, explicitly rejecting “all violence”.
