A few nights before the Oscars controversy — you know, when Will Smith slapped Chris Rock over a joke about Jada Pinkett Smith’s hair — the Red Table Talk host posted a TikTok where she celebrated her crown.
“Being a Black woman and dealing with hair in Hollywood, in the era I came up in, having your hair look as European as possible was always the thing, and that was really challenging because I liked my hair out wild and curly,” she said.
Jada continued: “I feel the freedom today. I don’t give two craps what people think of this bald head of mine. Because guess what? I love it.”
