Season five of Red Table Talk premiered yesterday (April 20th) and it opened with a brief statement addressing the Will Smith, Chris Rock slap. The statement said, “Considering all that has happened in the last few weeks, the Smith family has been focused on deep healing. Some of the discoveries around our healing will be shared at the table when the time calls.”
The statement continued, “Until then the table will continue offering itself to powerful, inspiring and healing testimonies like that of our incredibly impressive first guest.”
The episode — which featured Janelle Monae, was taped before the Oscars slap.
