She said, ‘I feel like I’m really having a healing season right now.’
The 58-year-old actress said, ‘Listen, I love Will Smith. He is one of my favorite people on the planet. We all make mistakes. If there is one person who deserves a second chance, it is that person. I think he took full responsibility for his actions and apologized.’
She said, ‘I hope we can all move forward from that event and learn that this must never happen again. Especially on a stage of that size.’
Vivica A. Fox rebuked Jada Pinkett Smith’s reaction.
Vivica A. Fox made headlines when she appeared on the Wendy Williams Show last June.
During the episode, South Bend Natives responded with tears to Jada Pinkett Smith’s statements about the incident.
‘I hope we can be more responsible and not appear so self-righteous on Jada’s part,’ Fox said. That’s my feeling.’
Jada mentioned her husband’s behavior in a Red Table Talk in early June.
The then-weekly Emmy Award winner said: ‘My deepest hope is that these two bright and capable men have the opportunity to heal and talk about this matter and reconcile. In today’s world situation, we need both.’
Meanwhile, Will Smith shocked the world by beating host Chris Rock at the Oscars on March 27, 2022. Nevertheless, that evening he won his Best Actor award for his role in King Richard.
After the incident, the Men in Black actor received a big backlash. He was banned from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for the next decade.
