“About Oscar night. My great hope is that these two intelligent people will have the opportunity to heal and talk to each other so that they can reconcile, ”she said at the start of her talk show Red Table Talk on Wednesday.
“With the current state of the world, we need both of these and we need each other more than ever before,” she continued.

Since the incident, the actor has publicly apologized to the comedian, saying “he reacted emotionally” because “the Jada joke was too much for him.”
He also resigned from the academy.
Two days after the ceremony, Jada broke the silence on social media with a message on Instagram: “This is a season to heal and I’m here for it.”
She also said that she and her family members would discuss the incident involving her husband on her talk show at the right time.
