Jada Pinkett Smith (50) made herself heard for the first time on Tuesday after the physical incident between her husband Will Smith (53) and comedian Chris Rock (57) during the Oscar ceremony. With a somewhat cryptic text on Instagram, the actress lets you know that it is time to get better and that she is ready for it.
“This is the time to heal, and I’m ready”
“This is the time to heal, and I’m ready” reads on the picture that the actress posted Tuesday afternoon Dutch time. The actress omits further explanation in the caption.

During the Oscars ceremony last Monday night, Will punched Chris in the face after he joked about Jada’s bald head. She suffers from the hair disease alopecia and has therefore been bald for some time. Will apologized on Monday. “Violence in any form is toxic and destructive. The behavior I exhibited at the Academy Awards is unacceptable and unforgivable. Jokes made about me are part of my job, but a joke made about Jada’s medical condition went too far for me and that made me react emotionally,” he said in a statement.
