Jada Pinkett Smith’s mom wasn’t a fan of Olivia Jade’s ‘Red Table Talk’


Banfield Norris appears on the Facebook Watch series with his daughter and granddaughter, Jada Pinkett Smith and Willow Smith.

Tuesday’s episode featured Giannulli, a social media influencer who presents herself professionally by first and last name, discussing the college admissions scandal that drove her parents, actress Lori Loughlin and designer Mossimo Giannulli, to be sent to prison.

Even before Olivia Jade appeared at the table, Pinkett Smith said that she, her mother and daughter “all had very different feelings about it.”

“I just found it really ironic that she chose three black women to reach out to for her redemption story,” she said. “I feel like we are here, a white woman who comes looking for support from black women when we don’t get the same from them. It bothers me in many ways.
“His presence here is the epitome of white privilege for me. ”

Jade’s parents admitted paying $ 500,000 to help their two daughters get admitted to the University of Southern California, and the couple pleaded guilty to conspiracy charges earlier this year.

The 21-year-old came to “Red Table Talk” to break her silence about what happened.

Smith-Pinkett asked her mother to share her feelings about the appearance with Jade.

“I think for me it’s like there is so much violent dehumanization that the black community has to go through on a daily basis,” Banfield Norris said. “There is so much devastation, especially this year 2020 with the pandemic, and it’s all on the table about how there is so much inequality and inequality, that when you come to the table with something like that, it’s like, ‘Child, please.’ ”

Jade got it and Banfield Norris said she was’ happy because what I hear from you is that there is an interest and a desire to learn and understand where you are in the world. and what is your role in making a difference ”.

“I didn’t come here to like to try to convince people and say, ‘I really need people to like me,'” Jade said. “I just want to apologize for contributing to these social inequalities even though I hadn’t realized it at the time. ”
