Cancelled celebrities will need to find a new platform for their apology tours.
“Red Table Talk,” the online talk show hosted by Jada Pinkett Smith, was scrapped by Facebook on Wednesday.
The series, which was the last remaining FB Watch Original, has already completed its original order and won’t be returning to the air.
Producer Westbrook is looking for a new home for the show, co-hosted by Willow Smith and Adrienne Banfield-Norris, Deadline reports.
The move follows former head of development and programming Mina Lefevre’s departure from Meta, amid the company’s shifting focus on creating VR experiences.
Facebook’s parent company is “getting out of that business” entirely, according to Deadline.
Since launching in May 2018, “Red Table Talk” has played host to some iconic moments in pop culture history.
Fans notably saw Pinkett Smith and her husband, Will Smith, discuss her romantic “entanglement” with singer August Alsina, along with the 2022 Oscars slap, when Smith struck comedian Chris Rock on live television.
In her first episode following the slap heard around the world, Pinkett Smith, 51, said she really wants “these two intelligent, capable men [to] have an opportunity to heal, talk this out and reconcile.”
“The state of the world today, we need them both,” she continued at the time. “And we all actually need one another more than ever. Until then, Will and I are continuing to do what we have done for the last 28 years, and that’s keep figuring out this thing called life together. Thank you for listening.”
The “Suicide Squad” actor later apologized for hitting Rock, and was banned by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences from all Academy events for a decade.
Jordyn Woods also notably sat down for a tell-all interview in 2019 after she kissed Tristan Thompson at a party. The model, 25, at the time was best friends with Kylie Jenner, whose sister Khloé Kardashian was dating the NBA player.
“I should have gone home after the party,” she told Pinkett Smith. “I shouldn’t even have been there.”
Other guests included Demi Moore, Sandra Bullock, Kelly Osbourne and Ireland Baldwin.
