On Friday (July 10), Smith and his wife Jada Pinkett Smith made their revelation on Red Table Talk that Jada’s affair with August Alsina occurred while the Smith’s were separated. While others such as Boosie saluted Alsina for being involved with Jada, 50 turned his sights to joking on Will.
“Got Damn Will look hit, SMH what the fuck do ya do when this shit happens? LOL,” 50 wrote on Instagram, sharing a meme of Will’s teary-eyed face during the episode. “Nah it’s not funny. SHIT!”
But 50 wasn’t done there. In follow-up posts, the Power co-creator shared a Photoshopped meme of Smith in 50’s DMs discussing the incident and then another clowning Jada Pinkett’s choice of words in “entanglement.”
“Damn it’s like that, what i do?” 50 asked.
The record-breaking episode of Red Table Talk in which Jada confirmed that she and Alsina were in a relationship while the Smith’s were separated has been viewed over 16 million times since its premiere according to Variety. The episode smashed the previous one-day viewership record of 7.6 million views in the first 24 hours previously held by the March 2019 episode of Red Table Talk featuring Jordyn Woods.
The July 10 episode was released following Jada’s announcement that “some healing” need to be had following Alsina’s revelation that he and Jada were once an item and that Will Smith gave Alsina his blessing.
In the episode, Jada revealed that she and Alsina were an item and that their relationship had initially begun as friends four years ago. The pair were spotted together at the 2017 BET Awards and Alsina even appeared on an episode of Red Table Talk in July 2018. But after Jada mended her relationship with Will, Alsina cut all communication.
“We were over,” Pinkett Smith said of her and Will’s relationship prior to dating Alsina. “From there, as time went on, I got into a different kind of entanglement with August.”
