Jada Pinkett Smith Makes First Public Appearance Since Oscars Scandal

Jada Pinkett Smith made her first public appearance after the Oscars scandal, where her husband, Will Smith, stormed the stage to slap Chris Rock across the face.

On Saturday, the actress attended the opening of the Rhimes Performing Arts Center in Los Angeles. The arts center is named after executive producer and author Shonda Rhimes.

Pinkett wore a gold strapless gown and posed alongside Rhimes and Debbie Allen at the event.

According to Broadway World, the Rhimes Performing Arts Center named an aerial studio after Will and Jada Pinkett Smith. They also have rooms and installations in honor of Kobe Bryant and Berry Gordy.

Pinkett’s public appearance comes just days after the announcement that Will Smith was banned from attending all Academy Awards events for the next ten years.

The devastating consequences that fell upon Will Smith after he slapped Chris Rock for making a G.I. Jane joke directed at Pinkett.

Pinkett was offended at the comment as she previously opened up about her medical struggle with alopecia, which is a condition that causes hair loss.
