Jada Pinkett Smith has spoken out publicly for the first time since her husband Will Smith slapped Chris Rock at Sunday’s Oscars.

The actress and Red Table Talk host posted a graphic on Instagram Tuesday with a quote that reads: “This is a season for healing and I’m here for it.”

Despite sharing the inspirational message, she has yet to directly comment about Will walking on stage and physically assaulting Rock.

The infamous moment happened after the comedian made a joke about Pinkett Smith. The actress suffers from alopecia, and has had a shaved head since last summer. In an apparently unscripted moment, Rock joked that she should be cast in a sequel to G.I. Jane because of her bald held. Smith then walked on stage and slapped Rock as he presented the best documentary award.

Smith formally apologized to Rock Monday with a statement on Instagram. “I would like to publicly apologize to you, Chris. I was out of line and I was wrong. I am embarrassed and my actions were not indicative of the man I want to be. There is no place for violence in a world of love and kindness,” the statement said.

Smith had previously apologized to the film Academy and fellow Oscar nominees, but left Rock out of his speech as he accepted the best actor Oscar for his performance in the tennis drama King Richard.

Will and Jada’s son Jaden Smith spoke out Sunday night with a tweet saying, “and that’s how we do it.”
