Vivica A. Fox weighed in on the Oscars slap situation after Jada Pinkett-Smith posted her first direct response to the incident on an all-new episode of her show, Red Table Talk.

While guest-hosting the Wendy Williams Show, Fox responded to Jada's video in which the Girls Trip star said of the on-stage slap between Will Smith and Chris Rock: "My deepest hope is that these two intelligent, capable men have an opportunity to heal, talk this out, and reconcile."

Fox told the Wendy Show audience she doesn't believe Jada showed "accountability" for the incident and that her Set It Off co-star was "self-righteous" in the video over a joke that, in her opinion, "wasn't that bad."

"I felt to be a good partner, there was no accountability," Vivica said. "Will Smith was defending her honor, that was the reason he walked on stage and slapped because he felt that his wife had been offended."

"So, for me to see no accountability as a partner," she added. "Also, let's not forget that Chris Rock was assaulted. We cannot forget that. For basically telling a joke that I felt wasn't that bad."

If you'll remember, Rock was presenting the award for Best Documentary on March 27 when he "joked" that Jada would be in the fictional movie G.I. Jane 2, referring to her closely shaved hair. Jada has been public about her journey with alopecia — a medical condition that leads to hair loss.

Jada is launching a week-long series about alopecia, talking to people who, like her, live with the medical condition, as well as to others who support and care for those with the condition.
