It's only the second time Jada has spoken about the moment since the wife of the King Richard star was at the center of comedian Chris Rock's joke which riled Will so much he took to the stage and hit him.

Chris appeared on stage at the 2022 Oscars ceremony to present Best Documentary and mocked Jada's new look, joking: "Jada, love you, GI Jane 2, can't wait to see it!"

He was referencing her shaved head which comes as she battles with alopecia. Chris later apologized for the joke and claimed he was not aware of her condition.

Since then, Will has remained quiet after issuing a public apology and condemning his personal actions; he was also banned by the Academy from attending any related events, including the Oscars ceremony, for the next ten years.

Jada meanwhile has made a slow but gradual return to social media, even stepping out for her first red carpet appearance since the incident to support her friend at a Shonda Rhimes sponsored event.
