Vivica A. Fox Slams Jada Pinkett Smith Over Comments On Oscars Slap

Hollywood actress Vivica A. Fox was disappointed with her Set It Off co-star Jada Pinkett Smith after the latter's comments on the infamous Oscars slap involving her husband and Chris Rock.

While addressing the incident on her Red Table Talk show on Wednesday, Jada stated that she wished the two men would reconcile after what happened.

"About Oscar night. My deepest hope is that these two intelligent, capable men have an opportunity to heal, talk this out and reconcile.

"With the state of the world today, we need 'em both, and we all actually need one another more than ever.

"Until then, Will and I are continuing to do what we have done for the last 28 years — and that's [to] keep figuring out this thing called life together. Thank you for listening", she had said.

Reacting to her comments, Vivica A. Fox said that Jada showed her husband no accountability because his action was in defence of her honour.

Baring her mind on the latest episode of The Wendy Williams show, Fox disclosed that watching Jada make the comments made her cry.

"This is going to be difficult for me. These are my peers. I've done a movie with both of them. Set It Off with Jada and Independence Day with Will Smith, which absolutely changed my life.

"When I saw this video last night, it made me cry, I'll be very honest with you guys. I really felt like being a partner to Will Smith whose career basically took a crumble that night.

"We were all rooting for Will Smith that night — Oscar night — we wanted him to win. Will Smith that night as far as I was concerned was going to be crowned this generation's Sidney Poitier, which is a huge honour.

"Will Smith was defending her honour, that's the reason he walked on stage and slapped because he felt like his wife had been offended so for me to see no accountability as a partner.

"Also, let's not forget, Chris Rock was assaulted. We cannot forget that for basically telling a joke that I really felt wasn't that bad.

"Let's not forget the show was executive produced by Will Packer, an African American man. This night was a night of African American and diversity for brown and black people. That now will forever be scarred.

"I have love for the Smiths. I know their children. I've watched them grow up," she said. "I just wish we could have just a little more accountability and for it to not seem so self-righteous on Jada's part and that's my feelings", Fox said.
