Jada Pinkett Smith was catching a flight out of Los Angeles when she was asked by paparazzi about Chris Rock’s jokes about her at the Academy Awards.
Remember, Rock basically said that Pinkett Smith didn’t have a horse in the #OscarsSoWhite race, since she’s a television actress.
“Look, that comes with the territory, sweetheart,” Pinkett Smith responded, smiling and seemingly unfazed as she made her way through the airport.
“Eh, look, that comes with the territory,” she said again. “But we got to keep it moving. We got to keep it moving.
“We got to keep it moving,” she said for a third time. “There’s a lot of stuff we got to handle. A lot of stuff going on in our world right now.”
When asked about Donald Trump, Pinkett Smith hummed, “Hmm-mmm,” as in, “No, no, we can’t have that.”
