Vivica A Fox did not mince words when she spoke about Jada Pinkett Smith’s brief comments on Will Smith’s Oscar slap during her recent Red Table Talk appearance.
Fox was the guest of honor at The Wendy Williams Show on Thursday when he said he felt the actor – who worked with him on the 1996 film Set It Off – did not take ‘responsibility’ for Will’s attack on comedian Chris Rock.
The actor went on to say he did not think it was Will alone who needed to be held accountable for what happened, but Jada as well.

Commenting on the controversy: It was the first time for Jada to discuss the incident in detail when he was on his Red Table Talk program.
“Will Smith was defending his honor. , ‘shared Fox.
When Jada addressed the incident for the first time on Red Table Talk, he did not apologize or take responsibility for much of what happened.
The episode was mainly about skin deformities, a condition that Jada suffers from which causes hair loss and began to be considered after a slap.
‘This is a very important Red Table Talk about alopecia. Based on what I have gone through with my own health and what happened at the Oscars, ‘the actor began.
‘Thousands have reached out to me for their stories. I use this time to give our alopecia family the opportunity to talk about how this condition develops and to inform people about what exactly alopecia is.
Commenting on the slap, Jada said: ‘Now about the Oscar night, my biggest hope is that these two intelligent and capable men will have the opportunity to recover, talk about this and resolve it.’
Answer: ‘Will Smith was defending his honor, which is why he came on stage and applauded because he felt like his wife was upset so for me to see no responsibility as a partner – I just wish we were more responsible. and so as not to appear righteous on the part of Jada and that is my feeling, ‘shared Fox.
Cultural context: He continued, ‘Tonight was the night of the Americans of African descent and the diversity of brown and Black people. That will now be scarred forever ‘
He continued: ‘The state of the world today, we need both. And we all need each other more than ever. Until then, Will and I continue to do what we have done for the past 28 years, and that is to continue to reflect on this so-called life together. Thank you for listening. ‘
The 57-year-old actress, who worked with Will on Independence Day, also said, ‘When I saw this video last night, it made me cry; I will be very faithful to you. ‘
He went on to say that Will’s work was ruined that night before talking about the context of the evening how he saw it.

“Will Smith that night, as far as I was concerned, would be crowned Sidney Poitier of this generation, which is a great honor,” he said.
He continued, ‘Tonight was the night of Americans of African descent and the diversity of brown and Black people. That will be a scar forever. ‘
He also said that people should not forget that ‘Chris Rock was attacked’ and said he did not think the joke about Smith’s hair was ‘too bad.’
Following the incident, Will was seen celebrating all night with his family at the Vanity Fair Oscars, dancing to his Gettin ‘Jiggy Wit It song as the crowd cheered.
However, a few days later he apologized in an official statement saying his behavior was ‘unacceptable and unjustified’ and left him ’embarrassed.’

“Violence in all its forms is toxic and destructive,” he wrote.
‘My behavior at last night’s Academy Awards was unacceptable and has no excuse. Jokes at my expense are part of the job, but the joke about Jada’s health condition was too heavy for me and I responded emotionally.
‘I’d like to apologize publicly, Chris. I was out of line and I was wrong. I am ashamed and my actions were not a sign of the man I want to be. There is no place for violence in the world of love and kindness. ‘
Chris has not responded to Will’s apology, but has repeated the slap many times since the time of his show.
Last month, Chris joked that he ‘got my attention’ after a coffee, during a set at the Royal Albert Hall in London.
His side of the story: Jada called Will and Chris ‘men of intelligence and ability’ and said he hoped ‘they had a chance to recover’
After an official review of the event in April, Will was banned from Oscar awards for 10 years, but was allowed to keep his Best Actor award for King Richard.
In a statement, the College denounced its ‘unacceptable’ behavior and ‘harm’ which ‘covered’ the entire evening.
“During our broadcast, we did not properly address the situation in the closet. For this, we are sorry. This was an opportunity for us to set an example for our guests, spectators and our Academy family around the world, and we missed – without preparing for the unusual situation.
‘The Board has decided, for a period of 10 years from April 8, 2022, Mr. Smith will not be permitted to attend any College events or programs, individually or in real life, including but not limited to the College Awards.
‘We would like to express our deepest gratitude to Mr. Rock for maintaining its stability under bizarre circumstances. We would also like to thank our organizers, nominees, broadcasters and winners for their calmness and grace during our broadcast. ‘
Sadly: Jada invited Niki Ball to Red Table Talk who revealed that her daughter had committed suicide due to abuse due to alopecia.
Emotional: Jada’s daughter, Willow Smith, could be seen as emotionally charged as they talked about the topic
He moved: Jada also seemed annoyed when he heard the story on a special episode, which he introduced by referring to the Oscar slap.
During Wednesday’s entire Red Table Talk, Jada discussed the topic of ulopecia with her mother Adrienne Banfield Norris and daughter Willow Smith.
“People do not understand what alopecia is, and they do not understand its effects,” Jada said at the time.
It was reported that circles around Chris Rock said the comedian was unaware that Jada was suffering from ulopecia when he joked about being bald.
Alopecia areata is a disease of the immune system that can cause unpredictable and pathogenic hair loss, and affects approximately 7 million people in the United States.
After launching the show and referring to the Oscars’ slap, Jada brought her mother Niki Ball, whose daughter Rio Allred contracted alopecia and died by suicide.
Niki revealed that Rio’s 12-year-old daughter died just two weeks before the Oscars’ shooting incident. ‘People will be Googling, “what is alopecia?” Like “what is this we have never heard of?” It’s not a joke, ‘he said.
The episode also featured former NBA player Charlie Villanueva and a hairdresser who both talked about their struggles with alopecia.
Chris has not responded to Will’s apology, but has returned several times since the time of his show.
