Jada Pinkett Smith moves to end Oscars slap controversy

Jada Pinkett Smith has said it is her "deepest hope" that her

husband Will Smith and Chris Rock "talk this out and reconcile" after

Will Smith's infamous slapping of Rock at the Oscars in March.

Pinkett Smith's husband took to the stage at the 94th Academy

Awards and slapped Rock after the comedian made a joke about her

Entertainment trade publication the Hollywood Reporter says that

Pinkett Smith made her reconciliation comments at the start of the

new episode of her Red Table Talk series on Facebook Watch.

The episode focuses on alopecia.
