Jada Pinkett Smith, the subject of the joke that led her husband Will Smith to slap Chris Rock at the 94th Academy Awards on Sunday, called for “healing” on Tuesday.
“This is the season for healing and I’m here for it,” Pinkett Smith said in a message posted on her verified Instagram account.
Pinkett Smith posted the message the morning after Smith publicly apologized to Rock, saying in a statement that he was “out of line,” “wrong” and “embarrassed.”
“I am embarrassed and my actions were not indicative of the man I want to be. There is no place for violence in a world of love and kindness,” Smith wrote in the post.
