Willow Smith, the 22-year-old singer, has shared an emotional Instagram post that has left fans talking. The post features a close-up image of Willow, with a single tear falling down her face. She captioned the post “≤pantomime≥,” leaving her followers to speculate on the meaning behind the cryptic message.
Many of her followers expressed their love and support for Willow, with Camila Cabello leaving a comment saying, “I love you angel,” and others calling her “beautiful” even while crying. However, some fans expressed concern, urging Willow to let her emotions out and never keep them bottled up.
Red Table Talk Cancelation
The emotional post comes after the cancelation of Red Table Talk, the hit talk show co-hosted by Willow, her mother Jada Pinkett Smith, and grandmother Adrienne Banfield-Norris. The show was produced by Jada and her husband Will Smith’s production company, Westbrook Studios, and premiered in May of 2018.
Meta, the company that owned Facebook Watch Originals Entertainment Group, decided to shut down the group in April, leading to the show’s cancelation. Jada took to Instagram to thank the team and express her sadness at the show’s end. However, she also stated that they were “in talks of finding a new home” for the show.
Explosive Moments on Red Table Talk
Red Table Talk was known for its bombshell moments and interviews, including one with Will Smith himself, where he addressed rumors of a break-up with Jada. The show also featured an emotional moment with Jada, where she discussed her alopecia and its psychological effects.
The show also made headlines when Jada’s bald hairstyle was the subject of an offensive joke at the 2022 Oscars. Will Smith walked up on stage and slapped Chris Rock, which led to an explosive interview on Red Table Talk.
Olivia Jade Giannulli, Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli’s youngest daughter, also broke her silence after her parents were exposed in the 2019 college admissions scandal.
Meta’s Job Cuts
Meta is currently cutting 10,000 jobs across the company, adding to the 11,000 employees it laid off at the end of 2022. Mina Lefevre, the head of development and programming for Facebook Watch Originals Entertainment Group, also plans to leave the company.
Looking for a New Home
Despite the show’s cancelation, Westbrook Studios is reportedly looking for a new home for Red Table Talk. Fans of the show are eagerly awaiting any news on its return.
In the meantime, Willow’s emotional Instagram post has reminded fans of the show’s impact and how it provided a safe space for celebrities to share their stories. While the cancelation of Red Table Talk may be disappointing, the show’s legacy will undoubtedly live on.
